Decided to rebuild my FPV ground station to a smaller and easier to handle verison.

My old station I had in a hardcase together with my radio. But this setup did not feel right after a while. It did work, nothing wrong with that but just did not suit my needs at the time.

Posted by Pippin in Pippin's Blog, 20 February 2015 · 671 views

The wooden octo fly's well with the complimentary filter - with the revo on board..

I've been mystified by multiple attempts to get it to even take off when using the INS EKF filter - it always tries to flip over.

I tried the following over the last few days..

Hey FPV enthusiasts, I recently finish my first FPV Racer, I have many multirotors but this one is my first mini racer and it is a blast.
