    Maintaining Altitude (newbie Q)

    Thanks! I also couldn’t commit to my FPV goggles, I took them off right away so I could watch the drone. It was a pretty large area, but lined with trees on one side. I think the wind and coming from a DJI Phantom makes me want to see the drone.

    Maintaining Altitude (newbie Q)

    Having the same issue, I took out my new Cinewhoop that I built and I'm having trouble maintaining a constant altitude. It was a bit windy and the drone was leaning heavily into the wind. When moving forward at speed it seems easier to maintain altitude. Any particular throttle and expo settings...

    Had my first Fire Today

    Looking for Replacement 3" Ducts

    Thanks for the replies. There is a 3D printable from Thingverse, then I'd have to buy a 3D printer. I may just order the whole kit from BG $7 more than buying 2 set of ducts. In the mean time I'll glue...it's not that bad, but I was trying to stay ahead of things. I hopefully won't be crashing...

    Looking for Replacement 3" Ducts

    I'm looking for replacement ducts for this build. It's my first FPV drone, I've been flying DJI for years, and before I got it setup properly, I crashed it a few times and cracked a duct. I've since been crashing safely on Liftoff. The ducts are available through Banggood, but I'm looking for...
