Cant believe its been two weeks since my last flight – damn weather
new vtail built (one im going to use for FPV – no landing gear !)
is underpowered for this, throttle was pegged for the run and more than say 30 deg pitch and it would loose height, worse was on the downwind corner (wind was blowing from my right) as it would really loose height or stall, at the end of the vid is a couple of crashes.
thinking about it (without swapping motors) is i only supply 90% max throttle to the front motors, doing the math, this is 81% of available power, so i am going to crank it up to the MAX and rely on roll correction from only the motor that loses power when asked to roll.
she weighs 1150 grams or so with the go-pro onboard – should swap that to a keychain camera
