Oh ok. Have you been riding you're motorcycle a lot lately? I finally uploaded the Chroma onboard video to my laptop last night. I needed a micro sd card adapter, which I found at RadioShack last night. The video looks amazing. It is so stable and the resolution is superb. I am definitely happy with this machine

Not so much motorcycling lately. I will tell you about it at the field one day. I got in a few flights with my newest racer today between rain showers. Also got my new flight controller to repair the one I burned up last week.

Anyone flying tomorrow? I finally got a few flights in earlier in the week after a month off. Got caught up getting my car ready for OC and Firefly Prep for the station. I did get my 5" Element built and am just waiting on the 600tvl Mini camera to get here to get it balanced and tuned. Initial hover tests were good but got a lil squirrelly when recovering from maneuvers.

Did anyone make it out to the field today? I couldn't make it. I did have a little time to put together my latest toy. It's gonna be too windy for a maiden tomorrow.

Nice plane! I didn't make it out today either. It was just too hot and windy.

Noah and I have been busy with Scouts. He completed his Eagle Scout community service project this weekend. All that is left is paperwork and a board of review by the DelMarVa Scouts Council and he will be an Eagle Scout.

The plane looks nice.

That reminds me, I have something for you and Noah. I've been so distracted the past few months I forgot to give it to you. Glad you like the plane. It was an awesome gift from a friend. When the winds die down I will maiden it on the water of course!

I have some new settings that I want to try out in Mission Planner for my "large" quad. We should be able to get some great footage of our flying this season.

Cool, sounds good too me. I can't wait to see what my Chroma can do at the field. It's an expensive toy, but well worth it.

Would really like to. Have not had much RC time this spring.
Scouts stuff tomorrow with Noah.
I might stop by to say hi if I see you out there as I drive past.

I flew 2 packs tonight. Switched to 4s on the Xhover, still trying to work on my pids. I'll fly a few packs tomorrow. Might go to Schulte in the morning. Think I might take a fixed wing out too.

What time will you be at Schutte? I'll be taking my Father's Day motorcycle ride and I might stop by for a fee minutes. Who knows I might even take a quad along for the ride.

Happy Father's day ya'll.... I got around 10 flights yesterday at the school with Justin and 2 others, got to dial in both of my racers. Keep in mind when adjusted PID's you are adjusting the acro/rate mode not the level/horizon that Newjak uses. must also consider low flight times and overwhelming the ESC's , I sent Newjak info on this as well , it DOES affect the current output. I spent 2 flights buzzing around in acro, it is super fun!

I stopped using angle/horizon mode a while back. It was causing me problems when I switched back to my regular helis.

FYI - A custom cut antenna does not stop multipath interference.
