I Suck at FPV - Diatone Crusader GT2 Practice

Sometimes it's hard to get out there and fly. Sometimes it gets dark before you're out of school or work. Sometimes your batteries aren't charged up, or you forgot the cable you needed, or a thousand other tiny excuses. I've been falling prey to those tiny excuses for waaaaaay too long now, and have finally taken some time to work at my miniquad flying
It's not pretty, and I won't be on Rotor Riot or DRL anytime soon, but it sure was fun. I hopped into 4S about a year ago without taking time to reacquaint myself with 3S, and the jump has been showing. This little flight was part of 4-5 batteries I went through the other day, most of which were unfortunately not captured on video. The drone is a Diatone Crusader GT2 - It's pretty great! I put two bladed props on in an attempt to make it a little more docile, which has screwed up the tune. The FC and everything are super compact, and you can even adjust the FPV camera! A cheap battery strap is perfect for putting a Mobius/Runcam/Legend 1 style camera on top, producing the beautiful (/s) footage you see above.

It looks like I've gotta put in more stick time, more simulator time, and more time on the Tiny Whoop. Stay 'tuned folks, it's only going to get better from here!

  1. Oh my, you have taken one of the fastest racing models :)))) That little Diatone is a speed demon, isn't it? :) Good luck with getting used to the power and tork of 4S batteries! In case you also want to find out more about camera drone models (the ones that are not that fast and are much easier to control), I suggest checking out this article I found on the web: http://mydronelab.com/best-pick/camera-drones-for-sale.html
