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!

Want more? Let me know (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

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.

I'll never forget! X Class @ West Coast Throwdown 2018

I haven't had this much fun in a long time, and I can't wait to go back! Carpooled all the way to Whistler's Bend in Oregon for the West Coast Throwdown 2018 with my buddy SparkyJosh. I quickly learned that X-Class is like family, as I watched fellow completing pilots help each other out. Then on the day of the X-Class races, Zoe lent me one of her rigs and said "Don't crash". Well I took that advise to heart (and the going slow through the trees), and managed to get 1st place in X-Class racing! I don't think I've won 1st place in anything since the 4th grade, and it left me in disbelief the entire rest of the trip, like did that really all happen? Pinch check yep, others confirming memories, check, picture and video proof, holy heck it was all real, and will be a weekend I'll never forget.

I can't say thank you enough to everyone, from the sponsors, to the other pilots whom made this event what it is, and I can't wait till next year.

Special thanks to Team Dysonian, and Zoe, for having faith, and lending me a rig that made the win possible. I'd also like to thank Krittur and DWreck for contributing their drone footage featured in this video.

Car Week Drift Party | Drift Central

First and foremost, I would like to thank the drivers, for without them and their passion as well, this video wouldn't be possible.

Once again, Drift Central has thrown together another great event #CarweekDRIFTParty! Would you believe, it's been a whole year since I found out about these events and started going, and what great way to start things off is with a whole new drone! Let's just say, my previous rig felt like I was flying a tank (and it might as well be) compared to this one. The amount of power and agility available is definitely a different experience that I could get used to. It is an ultralight rig hauling around a Hero6 with 2306 2150kv motors, and 6" HQ 6045 V1S Blade Props on 5s HV batteries. 😍

Is it the tinkerer, or the artist in myself that I causes my self striving to "perfect" and be overcritical of things? I think it might be a little bit of both. As with all my edits, a lot of time and passion is put into these videos, this one is no exception, so if you truly enjoyed this production, please let me know below! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

P.S. Hope you like the new outro 💣 😉

Independence Drift | Drift Central

Another great event by Drift Central! I am so fortunate that they hold these events every month! Did you know? I can hear these events from my house, both exhaust and screeching tires! This event was no exception! It was a blast to chase everyone around, and I have to admit, the flag was an epic touch, that I hope ya'll enjoy!

Off the Grid

Having a life that revolves around technology, some times, you just have to go off the grid, so I took the family, we ventured out into the wilderness, and here is where we stopped.

Stay tuned (subscribe/follow), as that reservoir will definitely be revisited for some longer range shenanigans 😉

Summertime DRIFTness | Drift Central

This was definitely a fun event, got to chat with both new and old faces. Now armed with 3 actions cameras, a handheld electronic gimbal for my cell, and a DSLR, this made for a very interesting production, as you will soon see... Enjoy!

Notes: As with most of these video's, winds are generally 15mph plus, and if you follow my Instagram/Facebook, this was shot with my "Deadpool" build, details below.

Ocean Spray

The ocean is so soothing, until your flying your drone over it! Also, who needs an ND Filter when you got Ocean Spray!

It has been a long time since I've been to this spot, and first time ever flying over the ocean at it. Definitely an uneasy feeling, considering the risks involved.

Enjoy!

Who's down for some Grassroots Tandem Drifting action? ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ

Special thanks to the Drivers, for without you, and your obsession, this video wouldn't be possible!

Boy have I missed doing this! This is hands-down the favorite Drift video I've made to date, with HappyNewDrift closely behind.

All About the Bando

From the opening shot, to the train tracks, all abandoned and related to each other, each their own adventure, and I've barely touched the possibilities of this place, rich with history, and a shame it has all become this... but makes for one hell of a FPV playground!

I've been collecting golden hour footage for over a month to make something special, so I hope everyone enjoys!

iHeartDRIFT | Drift Central

Caught the tail end of the iHeartDRIFT event by Drift Central, and here is the footage that I acquired. Interesting enough, ran into my buddies the Wallhunterz, who threw it down until the end of the event.

Notes: The weather was less than ideal, as a cold front started to come in bringing some strong winds, but as long as there isn't rain I make due, as ultimately that increase in difficulty helps me become a better pilot.

Uncut

For those who like it Uncut. Enjoy!

This is a little parcel of land that very rarely has anyone around, and I love the diversity of trees and gaps that is great for practicing throttle management, among other things. Last video I made from this spot was "Out of the Sim, and Into the Pilot Seat", if you want to see how much I've progressed (and that had 3 cuts if I remember correctly).

Wallhunterz Thunderhill Drift

Special thanks to the Wallhunterz for inviting me out to this event, and the drivers, for without you this video wouldn't be possible!

This was by far the most difficult flying situation I've encountered. From insane winds of 26+mph, and a less than ideal (2.4ghz) RF situation, this was the best footage I was able to acquire from the day.

Goals for next time, a 915mhz Crossfire Setup, and possibly some 5s batteries, or maybe I need to whip together a 6" 6S build.

Float On

For the want of a long-range link, this is the farthest I've ever traveled over water. It was a very peaceful, and fulfilling few batteries I flew here, I hope you enjoy!
