I was up at Haytor with the quad today. Unfortunately I forgot to switch the camera on! It was a bit windier this afternoon so only got a short flight in but it certainly attracted a lot of onlookers. I remembered to switch of "course lock" and it flew pretty well.

Excellent Grahame, second test flight of X580 had a complete prop fly off damaged the tarot support plate but everything else fine, it's worth noting to tighten up props after flight, obviously one wasn't tight enough will post on board video when done.

Oops, easily done.
I managed to try and take off in manual mode yesterday, result quad flipped.
Only one damaged prop though.
That was simply my fault, did the compass calibration but forgot to flip the switch back to GPS for take off.
