Crashed.......... noooo:


Not too much damage...



The camera gimbal came off but it is on rubber anti-vibration mounts...

The camera came off the gimbal too but it is okay....

Sadly, I accidentally deleted the files from the camera....  whistle:

Quadcopter grounded Sundays and Wednesdays as it is hunting season - they'll shoot anything that moves!  scared2:

I had a number of crashes yesterday (including one in the neighbour's garden  redface:) while trying to fine tune the flight control board...  noooo:

Consequently, last night I changed the flight control software from Multiwii to Megapirate which should be simpler to tune and offers better GPS support...  Thumbs:

It will prolly chase Miss D around tho....  noooo:

Ah it has a brain of its own.  Why not sign it up here so it can post its version of events?   And of course images of naughty goings on in others gardens in a 'what the copter saw' theme nice pictures.
Well, whatever nevermind

Sounds like it's perfectly safe then  whistle:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.
