Since this is a nice clean space I will try and start a discussion.

I have flown now for a while doing heli flying.Then along comes the quad and a new field opens.Ok, into the future.Buy the copter and tx.Now the problems begin but are eventually settled and you get into the air.OMG,this quad thing is something else.How does this work ,what is Mode 1?And on and on but you still keep flying.Finally,things take shape and success is beginning to show its face.It's a new field wide open with as many avenues to explore as there are people to go forward.

 

Ok, here's my first quandry.How do I tell front from back when the quad is 120 ft. away and the wind in moving you out of the country?Hurry up you need to act.

 

How can I mount a light on the nose of the forward position?Help is needed here.Smile

Flying a quad..Is not as easy because or orientation to the front and rear of it, especially if high or a distance away- one can put different color props on-As I fly a big dude - put some yellow foam on the front:

 my-quad-2Image Enlarger

 

Now led lights are also doable..but battery can give extra weight

Hobbyking led

I would shoot a email to Raptor as he is a genius with this set up..also CPD.

Another way of orientation is to fly the front of the quad towards you and realize to yaw left you need to push remote stick to the right,as you do that turn the quad to the front and repeat..so if the quad is well in front of you spin 360 and try forward stick move,if she starts to move away further do not panic..push remote stick briefly the other way to stop the inersion of flight to hover--hope you understand that-not sure explained well--all in all just practise..

Hence on my big quad I like fpv-hell lot easier to fly..My friend has put a tail and nose on his quad to help his flying,looks odd.

Thanks SF.Good advice.Were you the one who suggested using the Hobby King 3.7-600mAh battery?It works great and is really a lot cheaper than ones on the local market.I bought two and extended my flying time a whole lot.The HK number is 9210000002.Another, Thank You.

I  THINK, you cant beat the good old memory, if you think of it like you are driving to somewhere you have never been before, you can remember the way back, --- Yes.

So think of the last stick movement and you should with practice remember the orientation.

I use this in my job as a Crane Operator, the stick movement is very similar you turned it so un turn it, I know this sounds crazy but it works, we tend to forget about our tracks, we cant see them, but try it, remember what your hands are doing.

I bet you could walk around your home, in the dark with your eyes closed and know exactly where you are.

 

Don't just look at the Quad as it fly's, think with your sticks, remember the last movements.

 

Hope this helps it takes practice, so do it close in.
