Hey i checked out the simulators you mentioned and they are pretty cool! Thanks for pointing them out

I went from, that seems pretty cool to this is incredibly awsome upon the realisation that you can do this in the first person perspective via the camera.

Probably going to be the sweetest thing I ever do with my life if/when I do it. All hail VR and racing small aircraft!

Getting a buddy to print me some parts with his 3D printer. I want them all in red

Re: UNDERGROUND FPV DRONE RACING IS THE GEEK SPORT OF THE FUTURE

Another update (and Happy new year btw )

After quite a while I finally built in the 3D printed parts that fit and today I finally tried flying in FPV for the first time.

Was pretty fun. Sadly the cam wasn't focused properly so the video is pretty blurry but here it is anyway along with pics of the new setup. I crash a few times but I actually take off again until the very end of the video at which point it flipps over and breaks a prop. Other than that nothing was damaged during this flight,

Only do so if you also enjoy the building and repairing part as you'll probably spend much more time doing that and waiting for new orders then actual flying. Especially in the beginning

Re: FPV DRONE RACING

Finally got to fly again yesterday as the weather is slowly getting better

The first vid is a flight in the stabilized "attitude" flight mode. In this mode the quad always tried to get back into a horizontal position whenever I let go of the sticks.
The second vid is my second ever flight in the manual "rate" mode in which the quad keeps whatever angle I set it to, even when I let go of the sticks. This mode also allows for flips so this is the prefered mode when doing stunts or racing.

Sadly the rate mode flight is a bit short and I didn't get my first one on film (which was a bit longer). But during the second one I did my first ever flips so there's that at least

Anyway, compared to some of the pros out there my vids are pretty lame but hey, have fun anyway. You get to see me a bit excited after the rate vid flight

attitude mode:

Re: FPV DRONE RACING

I guess noone really cares but wtf, here's some new videos anyway:

Yesterday I decided to try tuning the responsiveness of my drone a bit and test out a different flight mode of my flight controller. It's called Acro+ and what it basically does is switch to manual prop control when pushing the stick all the way into one direction. This effectively turns of the gyro and puts full power to the props on one side allowing much faster flips.
It flies much better after tuning but is still a bit too sensitive for my taste and it still shakes a bit coming out of flips which should be fixed by fine tuning it a bit more.

The first two videos are a bit of flight testing out the new mode and the last one is actually my frist attempt at a flip in this mode which failed terribly and resulted in a crash which surprisingly didn't break anything

Re: FPV DRONE RACING

OK flashed a different firmware onto my flight controller. It's called betaflight and was optimised specifically for flying in acro mode. It has some nice features that my old software libre pilot does not have such as "air mode" which prevents the pid controller (which is responsible for keeping track of the drones position) from switching off at low throttle.
This means that I can essentially cut the throttle in mid air and the motors will still keep the drone balanced and stable even while falling. It also means that although the throttle is set to zero I can still fully control the position of the drone.
Quite fun because you can essentially thrust it forward, cut the power so it keeps flying the way it last got sent (essentially like a projectile) during which I can still flip it any way I want before switching the throttle back on to catch it...

Anyway still need to practice but I've tuned the settings a bit and it already flies pretty well:

Re: FPV DRONE RACING

Made another video with better tuned values. Flies pretty smoothly now

Thought a bit of music might be fun so I added a track underneath that I made sometime last year
