A lot of new pilots are joining every day, and they are all very keen to get up in the air! This is great of course, and if you fly with care and caution there is no reason not to like it. But, all these new drones could cause a new risk.. LiPo fires! especially0
This afternoon I had some time to go and fly drones with my daughter. She loves to fly the Hubsan H502 I have, and I took my UpAir with me. We had a good hour of flying, and it was great fun. Above the trees it was a bit windy, I didn’t go that high0
Did you know that windsocks actually tell a lot about wind speeds? Next time you see one close to where you are flying, or if you are on your way to another great flying spot and see one of these, read them! they could help you decide to fly or not.
UpAir did the same with the LEDs as DJI did, red in front, green in the back. I have swapped them around… Red is now rear, green is the front. It just makes more sense. Sorry for my horrible Phone camera..
Last Sunday I organised a drone meeting, and this is the footage of it. Never mind the wobbly footage, it was very windy and the UpAir had to work very hard to keep things straight. I have never flown with these kinds of winds before (windforce 3 – 4 )
As you might have read in my previous post I have had a hard landing with the UpAir. No major damage other than a damper that got lost in the grass. But, the UpAir had a minor deviation to the right and I wanted to know why. So i exposed the USB port. And I hooked0
We have organised a drone event today with Zutphantom The location was stunning, and it was great to fly there! There were a lot of people, with all sorts of drones. We’ve seen the Mavic, but also a lot of Inspires. There were Yuneecs and the well known Phantom. A couple of racers also joined,0
After another motor failure I have repaired the little Hubsan again. Even though this seems to be a big issue on these drones, I can’t stop loving it. It is a great flyer! It’s a pain to open her up every now and then, but when she’s up and running again it’s a great bird0
If, for what ever reason, you messed up your UpAir One parameters, or used the wizard function in Mission Planner, you can download my parameters here. These parameters have circle mode enabled, and the stick settings have changed. The drone reacts smoother to stick movements.. makes it look sluggish, but gives you more stable footage,0
If you’re planning to do the battery mod, you will need a new battery cover as well. Mike Roy has a great page with all kinds of printables for the UpAir. Click to visit his page. Once you have bought your printable you can have it printed at 3D hubs if you don’t have a0
