Right here i'm simply sharing what to not do in a excessive wind surroundings. Principally wasn't a good suggestion to fly in these 20+ mph winds flying my Cheerson CX-20: however I didn't take heed to my intestine intuition this time for some motive and winds actually picked up half manner by way of my second battery
Good place for CX-20 components and the place I ordered my new shell from:
Really the flight would have been positive if I didn't change to handbook mode and lower the throttle so low the place the wind then flipped it. At that time I used to be form of in panic mode since battery was working low, quad was 500 ft above me and wind was now actually selecting up and gusting onerous. I attempted some wild maneuvers because it plummeted like onerous pitch and roll with photographs of full throttle however nothing may flip it again over. Now time to look into whether it is even doable to proper a flipped cx20 simply in case. I'm pondering I ought to have tried the RTL mode to see if it may have fought the wind on it's personal however most likely not.
My angle max was set to 30% so something over 20mph wind was a loosing battle.
Nonetheless it luckily landed 500ft North of me/launch and in a discipline of excessive grass so harm was minimal. I used to be testing an AmKov 5000 Motion cam (no harm). Sadly I had the AmKov in 720p decision and never within the 1080P by chance :(. Was additionally testing an affordable aluminum gimbal for it (barely bent however repairable).
This quad not too long ago received a giant value drop and is now $216!
