Stable Flight Success :-)

June 21, 20110 Comments

Welp, the time has finally come. I am able to fly with (some) stability.

I still plan on chopping those spider legs off and going with a carbon fiber landing structure, but that one will be inboard and have a much smaller landing platform – so I need to get better at flying first. Going with a different landing structure will not only save a TON of weight and give me longer flight times, but it will also be more stable and agile. With all that weight so far on the ends of the arms, the motors have to work even harder to make pitch/roll/yaw changes.

Here is a video I shot last night after I got all my prop savers on and motors balanced.
