Welcome to the New Yearquad4xcopter

So far, I can safely navigate through my house and though it is not silky hovering smooth, I can avoid objects and go room to room without issue.  Of course, I’m doing this from behind, so the orientation portion is still very simple and relative to the way I am facing.  Taking off hasn’t been … Continue reading "Welcome to the New Year"(image)

LiPo Batteriesquad4xcopter

Lithium Polymer batteries (LiPo), are a relatively newer type of battery now used in many consumer electronics devices.  They’re pretty similar to the better known Lithium Ion batteries.  They are generally lighter and pack a bigger punch than older technology batteries like NiCd or NiMH. As extra batteries for my little Hubsan I got some … Continue reading "LiPo Batteries"(image)

First Flight through Week1quad4xcopter

The copter is much smaller than I imagined.  I knew it was small, but it is hard to know until you have it right in front of you.  As you can see, the controller itself is larger than the copter.  The controller fits my hands well, though it does feel like a cheap plastic knock … Continue reading "Unboxing"(image)

Step One – a learning machinequad4xcopter

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 16:11:30 +0000

I’m still deciding if I want to learn how to fly for video or fly for racing.  In either case, it is commonly recommended to start with a small cheap machine to learn on.  So I looked for a few recommendations (which may have been rather old) but decided on a Hubsan X4.  There were … Continue reading "Step One – a learning machine"(image)
