That's a very nice bit of kit.

Re: One non-starting motor

Ok.. finally ordered my spare parts (had to wait until pay day), so will have my Drone back up and running in a day or two.

I've received the lightweight hulls custom made by Daniel too... so once rebuilt I'll be stripping it down and testing out the new form factor :)

Re: App Preview: Drone Dance

hey that looks really cool. The moves are a little.. shall we say 'tame' looking.. is that just because of the limitations of the drone?

Re: One non-starting motor

Hey good idea!

Shafts are cheaper than a new motor so I'll make that step one.

One non-starting motor

OK, I've put in a few hours flying time now I'd guess, and no problems at all.. until finally my best mate makes it over after work to check it out. We take it for a very controlled and careful flight, I'm not showing off (for once) and he gets a go and is flying it like a pussy. No problems so far....

Re: Mr Dystopia's AR Drone Videos

Yeah I was really curious about what was going to happen too. It was a while ago, so I can't remember clearly what the behaviour was, but my memory is that I took it pretty carefully over that area, and it seemed OK. I've just lost a motor, so out of action at the moment, but i'll take it back up th...

Re: 3D printed Lightweight hull with GO PRO HD mount(-50%wei

OMG.. I'm laughing so much here. The quote I posted, is from a VERY funny episode of Fawlty Towers, one which gets quoted pretty much anytime anyone mentions Germans or the War in my experience. No offence intended, just watch some Fawlty Towers :) and yes.. I am familiar with Godwin's Law too. (oh ...

Basil Fawlty: Is something wrong?
German Guest: Will you please stop talking about the war?
Basil Fawlty: Me? You started it.
German Guest: We did not!
Basil Fawlty: Yes, you did, you invaded Poland.

But.. enough of that :)

I've dropped you a PM, am definitely interested in one of these hulls.

Re: What does the jury think ...

Slinging a camera underneath will mess with the AR Drone's ultra sound AND the down facing camera, which is probably why these drones don't get modified in that way.

Check out YouTube for plenty of drone footage taken with go pro cameras that doesn't have propellers in shot.

Re: Welcome to the AR.Drone Aussie Forum!

You might want to ask your questions in a new post, or in a topic about apps :)

(and if you're curious about what I'm using/.. check the sig. Though I use Flight Record for my day to day flying.)
