It is out of trim in the first few seconds of video ... Cold hands

Set up and programming about 5 minutes, Camera was a cheap point and shoot, batteries died or would have filmed all 3 flights. My SD9 Charging .... Will Document battery and flight on a true timer, these are estimated flight times.

First part of video bumping trims, after trimmed, you can see it is quite smooth.

Flew 3 flights this being the first, each approximately same time frame battery is a (NEW) 11.1 1800ma Art-Tech remained at about 75% after approximately 6 minutes flight time. Normally would use a 11.1 3000 but a 14.4 3000 would be pretty awesome, could imagine the flight time would be excessive. "NO LOAD" ... but will carry the Panasonic SD9 after mounting a servo on the camera Gimbal.

This machine is LARGE, but extremely light ... I would consider 6 minutes with 75% reserve on an 1800ma Art-Tech battery Impressive!!!

Will it actually sit still for more than 1 second? That video made it look pretty squirrelly IMO.

Doesn't that one have a GPS hold on it?

looks pretty squirrelly to me too. Perhaps when you add the weight of the camera to it that'll help.

Looks Cool Jeffery! Congrats on becoming the USA dealer for them!

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

ErichF,
First flight,trimming Much better on the next flights. Like to document the first flight (Good or bad) . . . your right, wasn't pretty . . . Tight quarters, actually it did well, I was over controlling it to trim and letting it drift so my stick inputs were drastic It was in hover mode and wanted to level itself. I kept pushing it around LOL ... liked watching it self level

Better video at the bottom !!!
It does have a GPS upgrade coming out very soon, Jan 18 is the release date. I think the release date is OFF alittle, will be later...Could be wrong!!

Thanks Randy & CJames

When you descended from the tree top height, is that the infamous wobble I've been reading about in the RCG forum?

I hit the skids on the gutter passing the garage It does look like that but the latest x650's software is flying very nicely wobble is not even noticeable or GONE

There is a couple more videos ...on youtube "llvllrwright" Last posted video is stabilised, 650 has 3 axis stabilisation for camera mount but only have the tilt axis mount on it now, which is stabilised, CHEAPO camera ... so look past the poor video quality to the nice flight quality, have new camera system now >>> SO, will be posting MUCH better video in the upcoming days and weeks

Thanks for the good words guys
