GoPro Hero 6 vs 5 Black AV Comparison Part 1


This is a direct comparison video between the GoPro Hero 6 Black and the GoPro Hero 5 Black. This video was split into multiple parts due to the extensive comparison done.

Notes: GoPro Hero 5 Audio had no wind reduction activated, and the video Stabilization for the drone footage, while it did well in a fair amount of cases, it did cause some unnatural distortion. Stay tuned for Part 2 that addresses both these issues, and tests the camera's low light capabilities.

Sunset Explosion at the Dunes


It has been over 6 months since I was last at this location, normally it is quiet, and less than a handful of people, however it resulted in an interesting day. To start off, as I pulled up, I got to watch someone else fly their 3D Helicopter, and after warming up by burning a pack, got a chance to attempt my best at capturing it (and staying out of its way). Thing was a speck in my goggles, but was alot of fun to chase around. Later I progressed more towards the beach, and had several people ask me questions about it, and even had a Principal from a local school ask for me to come by and give a demo to their students. Also, the Sunset was incredible, I hope you all enjoy!

Double Helix


Been wanting to rip up this spot for quite a while, however its really hard as there are typically people here (as it is a small college), but I appear to have got lucky yesterday, and managed to have the whole place to myself. Was a little worried about the fact its right in front of a Police Precinct, but appears either nobody was there, or nobody cared, so I got to have my way. Upped my Pitch P & D some more, seems to being flying smoother. I think D is fine where its at, and need to bump up Pitch P some more.

Enjoy!

The Duck Pond - Five Months Later


Went back to the "Duck Pond" as it had been several months and I wanted a little change of scenery, and a change in quads. Need to find more places to fly in my area. Managed to go through a dozen or so batteries at this location, and learned that "wrestling with trees" results in losing lock-nuts. Kinda wish these Cobra motors were threaded in both directions. Gonna have to stock up on lock-nuts now. At least CW lock-nuts are easy to find.

Enjoy!

Hyperlow Snake Bite @ Bando Land


Recently built a brand new quad, Hyperlow Modular Freestyle Frame, Cobra 2207 Motors with Dalprop 5046 Cyclones, Runcam Eagle 2, DYS F4 and F30A 4in1 stack, Unify Pro V2, FrSky XSR + Several Custom Designed by myself 3d Printed Pieces (Rear Antenna Mount + GoPro Adapter & Case). This would be the equivalent FPV Maiden, and what better place then my very own "Bando Land". I loaded the old PID's from my Black Knight + Upped a few values (A little P+ D on Roll/Pitch), and that is about it. Overally very happy with the way this flies. This video is composed of footage from 7 batteries, which I only flew for about 2 minutes each.

Enjoy!
