Long range FPV auto pilot setup with my Bixler.
I have flown this over 14km round trip in full auto pilot from Coven around Penkridge then landing at our flying field at Gailey.
This video is just a demo video (to stay within legal limits!).
After what feels like months of rain we finally had a dry sunny day to get up the flying field.
Careful negotiation of the mud and the successful extraction of Adrian's car by a bunch of itinerant strawberry pickers found us whizzing across the sky with the 450's.
After a bit of close-in remote circles from me, Adrian tried a few slow wide loops with the helicopter above our heads (a little worrying at times, especially when inverted).
We then decided to film a few loops and Adrian seemed to be enjoying being upside down so went for some inverted hovering and general flying about, the first lucky escape with the collective the wrong way should have been a warning, however, the warning was not heeded due to the achievement and it all ended in pieces.
So got the E-SPAD completed today so took it for a test flight.
It flies fantastic. Both Adrian and I had a great fly with it but then I handed it over to our club instructor Ian who promptly planted it into the ground and broke the motor shaft....!!!!
