Another beautiful day at the field, although the wind was gusty.
Practiced autorotations a lot. I’m mostly following: try to land with less and less power available. I started out at 30%. The last attempt was at 15% power.
I’m a bit surprised how rough you can land the Raptor 50. Just make sure that you don’t have sideways or backward motion, as it might tip over or bend the tail boom.
Of course, the FlyCamOne was on board again. I also tried it in photo-mode: it takes 1 photo each 4 seconds. The resolution in this mode is better (1280×1024 pixels), but the quality is still the same. Here are some nice shots:
I also tried a nose-in flyby: 1m49s, 13.8MB
And this is my first (semi-powered, 30% throttle) autorotation: 18s, 2.4MB
