Out of the Sim & into the Pilot Seat


Been spending a lot of time playing Liftoff lately, and decided it was time to fly the real thing. Thanks to the simulator, I found a nice rate profile, and also spent a little bit of time tuning my quad (mainly just bumping up the I gains for Pitch and Roll), and this is the first time I've flown it FPV since. Still needs to be dialed in more (visually I think I need to up the D gain on Roll slightly), but thankfully I should have Black Box logs to help. Lets see what the F1 based processor is capable of. Also, I switched from OneShot125 to Multishot since I last flew, and the combination of all these changes has made a huge difference in feel.

Notes: This was video was assembled from the last 3 of 8 packs. I'm only running an F1 processor at 1khz/1khz with Multishot, the tune isn't final by any means, and two of the motors have bent shafts (from the 4th or 5th pack smacking into pavement). So just imagine when I stick an F3 and run it at 8khz/8khz with DShot. To think, it has been a tad over 4 months since I picked up a transmitter and started training with Simulators, how much more can I improve? Only time and dedication will tell.
