Default Waiting on weather and time. weekend didn't turn out as planned. My area was to have partly sunny sky's today but instead we have fog and mist.
Not good for trying out "Position Hold" flight for the first time.

So not to waste the day I did what I always do when I can't fly and that would be to build something new.
In this case I replaced the aluminum tube gear you can see in previous photos with a new set of gear that is wider and much higher.
The new gear is more suited to UAV operations and what I have in mind when actually putting the Velos to work. I can operate out of grass now which will be a big benefit.

The whole assembly remains very light to include the rope deployment rack in these photos and the spray boom for cleaning exterior walls, roofs and store fronts to name a few.

Waiting on weather to break to fly the big machine and capture more video as it progresses and evolves to a complete useful working machine.

The new gear will allow more tools to be carried for work solutions.

Very excited....
