Momentous occasion. Got my first DJI HD rig flying, on 6S. It’s an iFlight DC50 frame, deadcat style. The image quality in the goggles is stunning. I was not able to get the DJI VTX antennas to mount in the included 3D printed mount without them popping out of the MMCX connectors. Super annoying. So just rigged up a temporary zip tie setup which won’t do well in a crash. Yes I know the T antenna in the front isn’t a great locale, but this build is so back heavy I was trying to put anything I could forward.
Just flew around the neighborhood so no real ripping. It feels heavy though, compared to my 6S Chameleon. Flies very smooth though. I plan to do a blog post about this and my DJI impressions soon.
Maiden Flight Video
Here’s the first flight test. Working!
Testing out my FPV skills and golf course flyover skills at the same time.
I should do a video of the week award. If I had such an award, this video would win it hands down! Check out the FPV video by Rotor Riot of the demolition of a power plant. Whatever this setup was, I need to build one!
