    I partially like how smooth and steady you flew this. From what I can see hardly any, if at all stablisation was used.

    Well done,

    Thanks, I had a little trouble doing a complete orbit of the windmill but I'm going to persevere until I can hopefully do it smoothly.

    Cheers,

    Hi, nice video, very stable

    I may suggest you to use the course lock feature + atti mode, this will help you in your flight transitions. I have the same quad you have, and I´m getting confident using this new features.

    Regards

    Hi again W P

    this is the link (topic) about how to use the special features if you like. I have learned a lot with this information, very clear.

    Making IOC and Home Lock work properly

    Best regards

    Juan

    Nice video! What camera setting are you flying in? 1080p 30fps or 1080i 60fps or 720p 60fps? Also are you using any special software to upload it to You Tube? Your video is very clear and not blurry like many of mine so I am curious. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Thanks, I'm using 720p / 60fps, I find it clearer than the other settings.

    Cheers,
