I have kinda finished v1 of my dodgy quad:

As I’ve said in other dq posts, it’s kinda dodgy 😉

Tupperware top, cable ties everywhere, pool noodles landing gear. Green=Right ; Red=Left.

And since my earlier … incident … with my oktokopter, I totalled my goPro, but most of the polycarbonate case survived (not the lens though), so I’ve drilled out some holes for easy access to SD card & AV port (and to lighten it a bit) and I have bolted it to my quad:

I’ll be taking it out this weekend when we’re off to Twyfelfontein for some camping, so hopefully I’ll get some interesting footage.

I’m kinda bumbed that my MEMS board didn’t work (the gyro’s roll axis was out of whack), because the accelerometers would give me auto-levelling, which would make it a lot easier to fly FPV, so I won’t be doing that any time soon, but I’m keeping all the gear the same so when I get a replacement, it’ll all be good!
