I can’t get enough of the 250mm Mogo. It’s small, fast, and forgiving when I crash into trees. I easily get 10 minute flight times off a 3s, 2200mah pack. My TBS discovery and batbone tricopter have been stored in the cabinet for over a month now. Sorry big guys, but the Mogo is too much fun!
Just another great day of flying with Erich and Frank. This time we drove up highway 1 to Davenport.
Quadcopter footage from the annual Lei-Out tournament in Santa Monica. I play in the tournament with a group of friends out of Fremont each year. This was filmed on the second day of the tournament.
Just a relaxing day of flying at baylands with a couple friends.
I recently upgraded my DJI F450 to a Team Black Sheep (TBS) Discovery frame. It felt heavier and less nimble, so I also converted from 3S to 4S packs. The 4s conversion required smaller propellers and I found a new line of multi-rotor props from APC at Aero Micro. I bought 9×4.5 for the quad and 10×5 for my tricopter. They are fantastic! Most of them are perfectly balanced out of the bag, I don’t think I’ve had any props like that. The injection molding tool must be brand new, buy your props now before the tool wears!
I also increased my pitch, roll, and yaw gains to get snappier response. I may have put the TBS disco in a tree due to sluggish response from a “BANK RIGHT!!!” input. Things also feel snappier with the smaller 9″ props. Here’s a video of the flight, I have to say I think the quad is flying better than it ever has with the new upgrades!
Filmed with my DJI F450, brushless gimbal, and GoPro Hero3. If you’re interested in aerial videos, please contact me. I’m happy to shoot for you!
