Drones. Specifically, this tiny 122mm drone. Been flying it FPV about my yard. Following the paths under the trees and larger bushes. Can just about do this now, without catching it in the foliage – if you look closely at the following pics, you can see green crap plastered to the standoffs. It’s from various leaves and grasses. I think the camera lens needs a cleaning as well. The video (at the top) was taken a couple days ago – it’sRead More
The very end, of a very serendipitous, first flight — of the year. Miles (the ex wonder dog) was there, of course. Drone was my P3A.

Flying my stock DJI F550 hexacopter, with a NAZA 2 FC, an H3B+ camera, recording at 1920 x 1280 x 60fps, supported by a brand new FY MiNi-3D 3 axis gimbal. Nice. And a very nice day to try it out on. Beautiful. Inverting it is simple. Remove cam. Invert gimbal. Rotate roll 180 deg. Put cam back, right side up. Done. It adjusts to the new orientation on power up. Bought mine here http://hobbywireless.com/gimbals-hea…al-p-1865.html Here’s some shots of the mountingRead More
