I’ve had 10-15 successful flights now with the big hexacopter following the flip over crash issue described in the previous post.  I have not come to a solid conclusion as to the cause of the flip on takeoff.  The only difference was my gains on the SuperX flight controller, which I had changed from 1.2 to 1.1.  I suspect the flip was pilot error, in hitting the throttle too fast.

The bird is flying and I’m improving my FPV skills as well as getting the hang of using my newly implemented pitch (tilt) control on the camera gimbal.

Speaking of new, I’m also evaluating a Sigma 19mm prime lens for the Sony NEX-5T E-Mount system.  The above photo demonstrates the tilt and the new lens.
