Out today to get some pictures of a new development in Peterborough UK.
First real test with Heli Command.

25mph gusts and turbulence of a nearby dual carriageway. It was brilliant hands off at 300ft made the job alot easier than first thought.
I didn't think we would get any shots with the heli today.

Hi rerazor
Thanks for your comments.
It certainly made things easy and i couldn't believe how well it performed, the wind was really gusting but it held position that well i could take my hands off the sticks.

Just wondering.. I see you using 2 spektrum radios.. one to fly and one for the mount? If so.. how is that going... no problems at all?

Are you doing anything to get them to work good together (ie placement, shielding ect)?

Nice Bird!

Hi rerazor
Yes you are correct horizontal mode and considering the weather conditions the drift was minimal.

No problem running 2 x 2.4 ghz radios they don't bother each other its only like flying next to some one else.

The picture i have posted is totally unedited its straight off the camera.
