First 5" flights ending in Disaster

Well here we are after our first attempt at flying our 5" drone, started so well ended in complete disaster.


Looked like a perfectly normal shoot to the moon situation… Video even seems to still be working at the end… :wink:

There was rather a lot of props in view!

I thought that, its as if the fov is too large. But it isnt. Maybe the camera is too far back?

We have just put it down to inexperience & not knowing what we are doing, you & the boys were right seems to be a very expensive hobby. LOL. @Yith PS took your advice with the tiny hawk 2, changed the mode to acro trainer on the tx12. managed a couple of fpv flights not to bad. thanks

Er… I disarmed instead of switching Return to Home on last night… I was very, very high up…

I got lucky… no damage… bounced and missed some massive rocks…

Thanks @notveryprettyboy not sure if we can change things, but doesn’t matter much at the moment as it may be permanently grounded. Jon&Denise :man_mage: :owl:

:laughing: Never. Just need more parts :grin:

Hi @Jon-Denise I’ve edited your post to include the OneBox preview.

To do this just paste the YouTube link into a new line of its own with no spaces etc.

No need to use the insert hyperlink button in the message composer or any embed code, its all done automatically for you if you follow the above.

You’d put some extra spaces in :frowning:

It’s a really weird frame design:

Doesn’t look like a 5" at all.

Never mind @Jon-Denise, it’s all part of the process I’m afraid. Looked like it was going well until then though. :+1:
