Taking it Slow and Eating Dust


Been over a month since I've flown my Black Knight 250 quad, I've upgraded the firmware to the latest CleanFlight, changed my PID Controller to LuxFloat, and pushing the limit of my 3S battery.

Notes: I'm not sure what my camera angle is, but it definitely feels steeper than in the DRL Simulator, its probably at 40*, which with the way the camera is in the current bracket, I can't lower it.  My Rates were a little on the looser side than I want; will have to try out some other Profiles (on a switch) when I fly next.  I also put my GoPro and Case on the scale, and its pretty close to 200g of dead weight. At the end (before eating dust), I tried to correct and give power, but was at the limit of what the battery could give.  I think it is time to invest in 4S batteries.
