The Quadcopter is flying well.
Yesterday I had some successful flights (see video above) but one crash landing that required some repairs - nothing major - a couple of new propellers and reattaching the GPS mount with glue.
Today I had some great flights in a park by the river with fabulous panoramic views under clear blue skies with little wind, but the camera stopped working so there is no footage. I also tried the althold and loiter functions and they worked like a charm.
I am getting about 10 minutes of flying time with a 2200mah battery pack and I have ordered a 3000mah pack as a spare. They take a while to recharge (a few hours).
