And instead of getting to shag Gwyneth Paltrow in a mansion, a Travelodge and White Dee feature.

Steve you are a sick and twisted individual....  :thumbsup:
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.

Crashed again then 😄

Worserer than that....  sad24:

Let's see. Could be he's crashed into one of the RAFs finest,

He's crashed it into the 'oggin or

It has something to do with cats . . .     whistle:

Crashed into the swimming pool....  redface:

...and when I pulled it out it burst into flames!  eeek:

 sad32: sad32: sad32:

So can they rebuild him it?   It could be an all new series coming up on the box:  The Six Billion Dollar QuadCopter

One of the motors and one ESC is completely FUBAR (hence the flames)...

Flight controller and receiver worked after being dried out...

Three other motors worked okay...

Three other ESCs worked intermittently.... hoping that a night on the radiator will have sorted them out...

I had a spare motor and ESC so worse case scenario, I will need three new ESCs that I can probably buy here...

Then a full re-build.... ::)

Luckily I didn't have the camera and gimbal on it!  ;D

How many quadcopter flight hours do you have now?

What is the operating cost in /second?

Oh fuck, am I allowed to say oh flying fuck?   

Goes off to look up what an ESC is . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  Thumbs:


An idea (serious) when you get it working again (and you will) is it worth getting some of that magic nano coating stuff you can get from Amazon to protect phones from water?
Well, whatever nevermind

Or just don't be stupid enough to fly it next to the swimming pool again!  lol:

The results are in tho, two ESCs are working fine this morning and the other somewhat intermittently....

So currently we are in a no fly scenario situation....  lol:

I've ordered some replacements.... I'm tempted to re-build as a hexacopter.....  rubschin:

It already seems to have a hex on it . . .

Alcohol may help.  No seriously, drown the semi fucked ESC in isopropyl alcy?
