No entries?

So even my small quad may stand a chance if I enter it :)
When does the comp close?

The best part is no matter what you got to fly, you can most definitely win something.
The style prizes are better than the beer lift weight prizes!

I just had a hilarious attempt to lift 2 beers with my quad....

Word of advice... don't hang, strap it to the multirotor... You get a pendulum effect and its not easy to control!

Ill upload my vid later today, need to see if I can make a better attempt haha

And here is my official entry for now :D!


YouTube

Vid is a bit blurry, but looks good on 720p.
Quad is ~980g
beer was 2x500g cans

So 1KG lift with about 60-65% throttle, not bad.

Make the vid before I fine tuned the new neon props so it was quite unstable to fly, I might remake the vid with a longer flight time and better landing...Might add some LED's for some style points aswell!

Cool. I'd like to try with my Tri, br currently I use a alu frame (home made) to withstand fpv-learning crashes / hard landings. My AUW currenly is about 1.7kg with the 5000mah battery and fpv gear. I should get the frame down to 700g AUW with carbon fibre. I think I should then lift 3 beers at least, maybe 4.
