    Thumbs up Under Current: FPV Quadcopter Crashes in River

    Hi All,

    Well I managed to sink the Quadcopter again in the pursuit of the perfect shot lol. This day was one of those days where nothing was going right, I had already hit about 8 objects during my flight due to many factors, going too fast, not knowing the area, bad light but it all came to an end after hitting the water.

    Not much damage was caused during the crash, Only 2x props were damaged and after drying out the Quad I found one of the ESC's had given up, luckily that seems to be the only damaged caused.

    Its exactly this kind of video that makes me want to get into FPV, but sadly my flying ability with the Hubsan V4 has shown me that I really shouldn't spend a lot of money on a quad!
    Still its lots of fun, and keeps the postman busy delivering replacement props and body shells!

    Haha glad your still enjoying your Hubsan, you could always upgrade to the FPV Hubsan you can output the footage from the remote onto a larger screen or goggles if needed which would be good. I keep the boat from China well stocked with props on its trip over here as well

    This is Grenofen Woods, near Tavistock, Devon. I am flying/swimming/sinking in the river Walkham...

    I landed in part of that long straight stretch of river. I used to camp in these woods when I was a kid, great adventures.
