Gates of Wraith - X Class Drone Racing (It Went Up In Flames)

In this video, a man talks about a nipple, we slice and dice a pool noodle, and dig a hole with a truck.

X Class Racing Season as Begun! (At least for the founding chapter) I had such a great time hanging out, and flying with other pilots. At least untill mother nature decided to have her way, and it ultimately got cancelled, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a learning experience! I actually got to test my rig and see that it is capable of keeping up with that of other top pilots. This was also the first time I've hit gates with my rig, and at speed! Lots of cool builds, and friendly faces, I can't wait until the next race, and more mayhem! Cheers!

X Class will never be the same! Testing Master Airscrew "3X Power" for X Class

So what started off as merely a trip to go fly with my fellow team mates, and X Class pilots of the area, turned into something special. This is the first time traveling to Baylands park, been meaning to check it out since I first found out about it back in 2017, but due to work schedule and distance, never could coordinate a time to meetup with someone out there. Lo and behold, what do I find when I arrive, a set of the latest Master Airscrew 13x12x3, as of writing, there are 10 in existence, one other set (of 4) is with Colby Curtola (SFPV), and he apparently already broke one. So until they start shipping, this is the last and only full set of them in existence! Having known about them for months as Andrew Dysonian carved the original design, to say I've been itching to fly them would be an understatement. Want to know my thoughts? Watch the video 😉

P.S. I normally don't VLOG, but when I do, they come out something like this (my 2nd vlog ever). Enjoy!

I ♥ Drift | Drift Central #iHeartDrift (2019)

After countless event's I've been to over the last couple years, this was probably the hardest to capture. Insane winds of 20mph with Gusts up to 30mph, that were wicked cold definitely turned up the difficulty. From gaining an instant 10ft of elevation on a gust with my mini-quad, to having my Mavic scream at me about "better land now" due to the winds, or "too much attitude angle", as a gust would just slam into it in the sky, some were so strong they would cause the gimbal to jump positions. Now I can official say I've tested my equipment, and know how it behaves under extreme conditions. Shout out to drivers, for without you and your passion for terrorizing tires, this wouldn't be possible! Now onto the show, Enjoy!

Happy New Drift (2018) | Drift Central

What better way to start a new year, than drifting on into it! Thank you Drift Central for the media pass, and the drivers, for without you and your passion for tire shredding and destruction, this wouldn't be possible!

Filmed with my Panasonic Lumix GH5, Mavic 2 Zoom, and my "Deadpool" Mini-Quad equipped with a Hero 6 Black. Enjoy!

100% Throttle for a minute straight! X Class Cobra Powertrain Testing

If your looking for a reliable X Class setup, that won't completely break the bank, look no further. Based upon the thermal results, you could get away flying this rig in Death Valley and it would be fine.

Powered by Cobra 4515 435kv Motors, and their 60A Wing ESC's, it swings 13" Master Airscrew Tri-Blades with 12" Pitch with ease!

The frame is a Dysonian Soul which is hand made from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum, which is 800mm motor to motor. At the core of the power system is a Dysonian Bus Bar PDB, that is being fed 10 gauge wires with 8mm bullets from the Hyperion G7 90C HV 5200mah battery.

Flight Controller is a BrainFPV Radix, which does a great job at handling this bird. The FPV camera is a Runcam Eagle 2 16:9, that is hooked up to a TBS Unify HV Race, with a Foxeer Lolipop antenna.

This rig is running Betaflight 3.5, PID's and Filters are as follows:
Dynamic Filter: Off
Filter Type: PT1
Gyro Notch LPF Cutoff 15
Gyro Notch 1: 85 cut 25
Gyro Notch 2: 245 cut 170
D Notch: 100 cut 30
Gyro/Pid Loops: 4k/2k
ESC Protocol: OneShot125 (No Damped Light)
Roll: 46/51/58
Pitch: 40/38/60
Yaw: 55/35/10

Note, above PID's are still a work-in progress, Pitch and Roll need more D, and Yaw needs more I for sure.
