Default Still Alive

Hi Everyone
Just a quick post to say I am still alive, I have been out of action for a while with a slipped disk but back on the road to recovery.
Just a quick video of something the wife bought me for my birthday great fun and even more so with a keycam mounted to it. [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVk71J6njjs&list=WLFBA114743698DC1F&index= 7&feature=plpp_video[/ame]

Default Stable and smooth

Impressed! Nice control and no blanket draped over the TV so you must be confident with its stability.

Hey BT - sorry to hear about the disc trouble, but glad you are on the road to recovery mate. Must get one of those cameras organised - I have a Multiplex Twinstar now as well (I know - Judas!) and they are ideal platforms for that sort of thing. Well, wxcept when I stuff them into the ground trying to do helicopter stall turns
Whoops!!

Keith

Hi Wrench thanks for the kind words buddy.

Keith this is the seller of the keycam you can get other cheeper 3rd party ones but this link is the real deal, I have also joined the FPVUK Forum and there are lots of people on there with the easystar.

Hi Ladian
There are 2 modes to fly X mode and + X mode is faster and more twitchy and + mode more slow and stable with the camera on untill You master it.
All I did was add +15 on my expo just to calm it down a little untill I got used to it, keep us all posted on what you think.

Talking Glad you are OK

Glad to see you are OK and on the mend. I too have been off HF for some time due to a busy life.

Nice flying with the drone ! I want one but I'm still working on my HK450's.

The king 300 is flying well and gets a good bit of fly-time each evening.

Keep flying to take the mind off the pain Big T. Good luck Mate.

I have found that I haven't had the time or the weather to fly my K2 or my 450 over the past year but the nice thing with the mqx is that I can tak it away on business with me and fly in the hotel room.

I just ordered the 808 #16 today. Horizon has the mQx on backorder, so we'll see how long it takes to get everything.

I've already have my DX8 profile setup with a little expo, and have been playing on the only quad in Phoenix. So this should be a fun little toy. I've always wanted to do a aerial view of my house from the air :-).
