The Duck Pond


Wanted to get in some fly time before the weather turned to trash, and to try out a different spot than I've been to before, as I've heard from other Pilots this particular park is ok. (Rumor has it [from other pilots I've met] the Mayor of this city thinks mini-quads are cool, and has no problem with us flying here). My only problem was, there were too many soft-targets to really "let loose" and try backwards flying, and new freestyle moves, hence why I just did a bunch of flips and rolls at (relatively) high altitude.

This is from a total of 6 packs that I only flew for about a minute and a half each (as I'm unsure of the power consumption with these propellers (DAL T5045) on 4s, however I feel they might be more efficient than the standard HQ 5x4x3, I'll find out when I recharge).

However this experience did give me my first encounter with RSSI issues (video signal was perfect), stick input would feel "drunk" would be how I would describe it. It was mainly behind that tree line I encounter issues, especially with my back to them, and my body blocking signal. Also that "knife edge" between the trees... yeah that was RSSI induced =D

Oh, and I took a look at the Telemetry data from my GoPro Hero 5 Black, and on that punch at the ending, hit 63mph! This is with the weight of the Hero 5 Black in a protective diving case that weighs in at around 200g, and right before I brought it back in for a fresh battery.

Notes: Reflecting on these props, they felt like they had a massive amount of thrust compared to the HQ 5x4x3's I have been flying recently, which would be good for racing, but not sure they are the best for freestyle. Will have to do some more testing (and be less aggressive on the throttle).

Happy and safe flying!
