Until now my construction has relied on sticky velcro to hold things down. This included the power distribution board and controller. This week "past Peter" kindly sent me a power distribution base plate and I've done a full re-build and also mounted the controller properly on standoffs.
And here's my first (well second, I rushed in to get Phillipa to film this after all looked good).
I have an unfortunate habit of catching the little cell cable in the props. The controller is a Flip32 and I'm running Cleanflight. This is an example of "dad flying" as Andrew calls it.
Took it to the park for a fly in more space. Unfortunately this ends with a rather hard landing and it seems that an ESC has died as a result.
When up high you can see both Sydney city and Chatswood in the distance.
Yes the ESC (electronic speed controller) started smoking and had to be replaced.
Here I take a look at the roof - I told you these things were useful!
