My first onboard Video

Recently I bought the nice GoPro HD digital camera. This week I mounted it the first time on my quadrocopter and flew around with it. But with the last battery the motor dissolved itself from its basement. Luckily my quadrocopter and the camera survived the crash without serious damage.

Onboard Video

By the way, I made this video using PiTiVi, which seems to evolve to a very easy to use video editor. The features are a bit limited at the moment, but there is much effort in the community improve this drawback.
I’m still working on my second quadrocopter. I decided to solve the current distribution better than I did at my first quadrocopter. I going to use a blank board with 70µm copper on each side. Each side has one pole and its mounted directly above the center plate.
There is also lot going on in the whole community: Two weeks ago the third NG UAVP Meeting took place in Zurich. We worked a lot on the new DCM based controller. Watch this footage from Robert. Also ludiwawa did the maiden flight of his Klappa Hexacopter.
