(8-12 mph) Gentle breeze

Goblin 700 Competition
4 flights
Avg. flight time 00:05:00


I've still hardly flown this model, and I'm really looking forward to my next session with it. One thing for definite is that when trying to do gentle continuous forward flips, it wobbles of track more than just my inability to make the corrections, or my tendency to accidentally move the sticks a little. In general though it was very nice to fly, especially flights 2 and 3 where I felt myself gaining confidence. I think the cyclic rates need increasing slightly to match the Logo, and I'm going to try increasing the cyclic gain to see if it stops it wobbling off track on the slow forward flips. I haven't experimented much with gain settings before, but I'm suspecting what I'm describing might be what some people refer to as being not very locked in.

Very picturesque, although those sheep sound hungry and dangerous :)

I'm just looking at the graphs on Log View Studio, and it seems I was only at about 1955rpm. There's some more blade noise left in it yet :) I can't wait for the weather to improve.

I've added a short video showing me doing tick-tocks which leads to the esc reaching the low power voltage cut-off. The explanation is in the YouTube Link. It's too long to write again :)
