Nice... one question 2400 rpm? seems a little high... but you say this is a 30 right? Hmm.. stills seems very high RPM for AP... One thing I noticed was the shaking during spoolup.. that is normal.. but your shaking seems to go on for a little longer than I would think it should.. you got that thing balanced as good as possible?

Love the footage.. just wondering about the RPM and extended shaking during spoolup? Maybe your blades are too tight?

vrwired,

yeah the vib does go on for a little longer. I think its because
of the way my Castle Esc is programmed. I have it set to a
super soft start. So it takes forever for it to get up to a
100% head speed. Might be what your seeing? I could be wrong
about the head speed. I was guess-timating it was over 2k?

Cool.. are you using GOV mode with the castle? I have an Castle85 HV on 12S and was unable to get the GOV working correctly.. it kept surging...

So I fly no GOV just using throttle and pitch curves. I have heard of many people having problems with GOV mode on some of the castle's.

Well anyway.. if you can find out your headspeed for sure it would be a good thing to know...

Nice! I like the part when you are low over the dunes.
I also like the information you keep displaying over the vid at the top.. makes it seem like video from an OSD sortah..

keep it up... literally!

More info the better. We heli dudes seem to like all we can get.
I'll hopefully be adding more goodies to this setup.

Trying to decide on what to order, a Helicam or photo shipone
mount? entry level one of course...
