Hello Guys,

Right now everything is line of sight. I have not moved the camera yet, just angled it down in the videos a little more to get it out of the props.

My goal is to start build a good ground station here later this summer. If anyone want to make suggestions on whats good, all I'm ears.

Hutch964, what all do you want to see pictures of?

Here is the latest, flying at my friends small farm.

Watch at YouTube

Thanks,
Chris

I wanted to get out today and try flying in some areas that I was not really used to. Plus, I just wanted to go fly my Sky-Hero and get some more video.

The actual footage is not that great, the goal was to start getting used to flying outside my safety zone.

The video does not do justice for how high the location is that I'm flying at. When I climbed up on the stump, I actually got sick to my stomach.

At the beginning of the video after you see me climb onto the stump, you'll see the Sky-Hero pause and back up. I was debating whether I should go way out or not. I told myself "this is what you came to do".

I need to do some tuning for Yaw on the Naza-M.

Remember the goal was not the video, but to get used to these types of spots to fly.

I'm going to try and get out more to these locations and get used to this type of flying. When I get my ground station, it will help out greatly.

Enjoy!

Thank you for the kind words.

The first videos I shot were in 720, I switch my GoPro to shoot in 1080 now for higher HD quality.

When you watch the video you should change the setting on YouTube HD setting to 1080 for the best quality to see how nice it is.

Thanks,
Chris

Beautiful setup Chris. And a beautiful job of putting it together.
Video as Smoooth as a baby's butt.
I'm just finishing an APM 2.6 "alien" build. If it flies anywhere near that smooth I'll be happy. Good to see you're out there doing it.

That MR is so stable, who needs a stabilized gymbal? Is it that stable due to the 8 motors? What is the overall weight? What battery are you running (capacity)?

One thing I notice a lot in videos shot from MRs is that when the yaw is used to turn the camera it can be sudden, not what we call "easy in / easy out. I wonder if you can program expo onto your transmitter rudder channel so that you can smooth the yaw video transitions, I don't see why not.

Seems a simple tilt rig for your camera could go a long way. I'm using an old Askman mount on mine, which gives me tilt.

keepin' it real

I've had a lot of people ask me about my set up. I'll give a break down of everything here:

I'm running a Sky-Hero 850 with the pancake motor upgrade that supports the newer pancake motors on the market.

What makes this system so smooth is the KDE motors and tri-prop adaptors.

I went with the KDE 4012XF-400 motors X 8. This made for a super stable and smooth over all system, even in the wind.

At first I was running 15inch props, they where super loud and in-efficient. I switched to the KDE tri-prop adaptors, this made everything super quite. I gained 2 minutes of flight time just by switching to this system.

I'm running KDE 55amp prototype ESC's.

I have a Naza-M V2 for the flight controller with a Zenmuse 2D-H3 hooked up.

The Battery is a Pulse 10000MAH 6S battery.

Futaba 8FG.

Hello Stet,

I 100% agree about the expo for yaw, I'm planning on make changes here soon to make it smoother. Also, once I have a ground station, I'll be able to see how fast I'm turning.

I can't wait to get it even more dialed in.

Thanks,
Chris

Nice, smooth video Chris. Especially for LOS. When you start FPV-ing this you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks bud,

I cannot wait for my ground station, it's going to be a lot of fun when I can line up the camera perfect with what I want it to see.

I need to add expo to yaw to make it smoother. Need to reposition the camera so no more props can be seen. Just a couple of small things to do.

I'm just goofing off doing this stuff, so the video I have gotten, I'm very pleased with.

If the funds allow, I might build a bigger system this summer. We'll see!

Thanks,
Chris

Okay,

This one actually impressed me, thought the video would be a lot worse from all the wind.

I made several passes to try and get some good footage. I was really impressed how much good footage there actually was. If I cut up the video, it could be real nice.

Watch at YouTube

The bummer is, I actually shot 2 videos. The second location was much better for view and wind. I must not have hit record when I started flying. I was super bummed when I got home only to see 1 video on the mini-SD card.

All that means is I get to make another trip up there sometime soon to get the second video.

Enjoy!

Thanks,
Chris
