Not exactly!  lol:

It all functions but you have to configure the PIDs (Proportional Integral Derivative) before it will fly properly... It is like a 'closed loop' system that enables the model to remain stable based on the feedback from the accelerometers and gyroscope...

It has been too windy/rainy to do it since I got it close to finished and the animals go mental if I fire it up indoors!  ;D

I was once an engineer and I had to look it up - and my guess was wrong  redface:




Summary: positional control via a few facts, a bit of past experience and a dollop of guesswork

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:

Will try a bigger field tomorrow....
