My latest crash under the snow


Here you are my latest crash during a heavy snowing.

I had some damages: one motor with bended shaft, an arm of the Q450 was slightly broken and rubber band philosophy always wins. In fact thanks to the rubber bands both the cameras simply detatched from the platform falling on theur own weight, avoiding sustaining the entire platform weight, as at the opposite, the poor motor #4 did.

So i had to make another hole close to the one no more usable because of the impact. Then the motor was unmounted, the shaft was replaced, the wind on the coil were put back in place and it came back to life.

The FPV camera and the added 120° degree lens was so undamaged as well as the dvrecorder (808 keychain).

Props are slightly damaged, still usable thanks to the ass-kicking flight controller components, vibration resistant.

Here you are the recording from both cameras for your amusement and my learning 🙂
