Default Show us your flying machines!

I was asked to post the spec of the hexacopter I'm currently using so figured I'd start a thread to show off your machines.

I'll post detailed photos of mine next week but in the mean time the spec I'm running is:


DJI 550 with Aerial Media Pros 650 heavy lift conversion
Aeroxcraft landing gear
Avroto 2814 motors
Opti 30A speedos
Graupner 11x5 e-props
Original NAZA with GPS
Turnigy 9x transmitter with ER9x firmware upgrade
4s 4500 lipo
Fatshark Attitude SD goggles
Sony 25, 3.6mm lens fpv camera
Immersion transmitter and spiro (mushroom) antennas
EzOSD transmitter, receiver and battery voltage regulator (on screen display)
YUN-1 brushless gimbal mounted on iris batwing plate
FPV model Alexmos gimbal controller
GoPro Hero 3 Black in metal skeleton cage, not clear plastic case

It's a beast!

Nope!

Assuming I remember correctly... Neal says it's a little bit faster than yours, but not a massive amount.

Here's mine. No quads just helis.


V911, great indoor fun and dead easy to fly.



V922, Proper 6ch collective pitch flybarless heli. Small fun and doesn't always destroy itself when crashed. Will fly outdoors.



Trex 450 SEV2, Proper scary when flown in the dining room! Will kill itself when crashed.

What landing gear is that pal. Will it also fit a 330?

I reckon the landing gear is a must for me, as it gives it a little more crash area absorbtion ( if thats even a word lol )

Thanks

Col.

Yes I've succumbed to the dark side and decided its better than the Yun1 gimbal

EZOSD is really cool, I like it, plug and play, all the info you need nice and clear. I'm really happy with the rig at the minute, it's flying better than it ever has done, and that's even with 2 x 5000mah lipos that weigh a tonne!

Yes I'll bring it if I'm not working weds night

The first rule of RHR unofficial flying club is that you don't talk about RHR unofficial flying club

some fantastic looking machines here. I'm wanting to get into Quads but have no prior experience at all. I'm looking for something which is ready to fly with minimal setup required to see if I'm going to be able to fly - before throwing silly money at it. I have a GoPro Hero 3 - and mainly want to record aerial video. I came across helipal and have been looking at the Storm Drone 4

http://www.helipal.com/product_info....oducts_id=8914

would this be a suitable "starter" quad ? or is there anything else out there RTF with very little setup ?

Cheers
Raymond

Plus one for the phantom , I got one as a gift , never flown anything before and this thing is brilliant ! The go pro fits well , just make sure you balance your props and you'll really cut down on the "Jello" effect when filming !!

Easy to fly , and has a brilliant return home feature if your nerve goes or you lose signal !!

Just one tip , I've put a notice on mine saying
"Cash reward if found" then my mobile number ! Don't fancy losing best part of a grands worth of kit if I lose the thing with the camera on !!

Thanks for the info guys. I had previously looked at the phantom but wasn't keen on its looks, but will give it some more thought.
