As you know I didn't test the connection. If there is any problem I can touch it up at the field next time. Your friend might need to try a different cable. The one he has is REALLY tight!

Did anyone take video of today's action? I never took my ground station out of my car.

Oh snap! I did plug and unplug it a couple of times. That location of the plug is inherently weak. I can try it again if you like. Maybe keep it as a back up.

Hey everyone, I'm still here lurking around. Actually, checked back in to see if anyone was into FPV racing in Kent. I picked up a 280 Versa and have been learning to fly quads LOS and just got all my FPV gear together. All you still flying at Frear?

My Setup:
FT Versa 280 on 3s
Emax 2204 2350kv
BL Heli 12 amp's
Naze32 w/ Cleanflight
Frsky D6FR
Boscam 200mw VTX
Boscam Board Cam

Glad to see yo back here. We still fly at the school most weekends. Most of us have recently started flying FPV racers and FPV in general.

I recommend a OSD installed to view how much milliamps are being used. you don't have it overall fpv complete setup until you know what is going on, your last outing ended up with 3.5 mins tops I recall on 4 cells? Dumping your quad from exhausting lipos is not fun
If long flights are not a concern, going with 3 blades will shorten flight time more and stunt top end speed. It is fast enough
