Default Re: Random Chit Chat

Lol I just got a FB messenger notification that someone sent me a message. Long story short this guy is the friend of a young woman I knew, and this guy was a seemingly nice guy, but haven't talked to him in at least 3 months. So I just got this message: "I can't wait to meet you little clock sucking b*tch! " Yes, he literally said clock XD lol. I can't wait to see what I didn't do hahaha!

I've had 20+ emails today from subscribed threads. I don't see any thing slow about this forum. Maybe you need to need to get more involved here. Plenty here to keep me busy.
Why not get involved on Techist now and you will see there's not much more going on there than there is here. I've been posting there for awhile. Made some new friends there. They have some good guys there also.
Come on over. What are you waiting for. Be prepared for a little different atmosphere. The members here are much more social. Why wait for the merger??
Gary!!

If you're into hardware and gaming, you will love Techist. We are more laid back here at CF, IMO. Check Techist out. It may be a while longer until the merger. It's been talked about before I joined CF and hasn't happened yet. I bounce back and forth and there is plenty to keep me interested. If you can't find some thing to catch your interest on one of them; I don't know what to tell you!!

Hi guys and gals. Here's a thread I started on Techist! You might find it a little interesting and you'll see what I'm talking about Techist being a little different than CF.

Not many here that respond to the problem threads! - Techist - Tech Forum

That's brilliant! Does this mean we can start seeing video clips taken by your multi-rotor platforms?

Here ya go then.

Testing a replacement camera gimbal on my DJI F550 Hex. The first one had a bad controller board. The retailer sent me a replacement controller kit. Works great now.



I added a super wide angle lens to a FPV board camera and videoed the gimbal in action. Watch the horizin to see how it counter acts the pitch and roll of the F550 hex.



After I had my Phantom for a bit and found the handle on it, I wanted to see what a video would look like if the camera was pointed straight down.



Some experimenting with a 6 Hex with only 4 motors on it. Same setup for the camera as the gimbal video. There's a small pocket DVR strapped on the upper deck recording the video.



I really get a kick out of this hobby. Now that it's starting to cool down around here I'm going to finish up some open projects and get back flying.
Just for a time referance, I got a blade MQX first then the Phantom. After that I worked on 2 F440 quad kits and got them going then got the F550 hex. My hex is a dedicated camera platform.
My latest kit is a Tarot 650 Sport quad. Big sucker.
