Does anyone fly Quadcopters?

Post

Hi There,

It's time to find out if anyone flies quadcopters. What do you fly and where do you fly them. Right now, I'm flying my Traxxas QR-1 inside my tiny home. It's quite exciting, not hitting anything and chasing the cats! Please let us know your stories. Thanks,

Randy

I do!! In order from smallest to biggest: Faze, Nano qx 3D, Inductrix, 200 qx and a 350 qx3. All from Horizon. The smallest 3 are indoor fliers. The 200 qx is a backyard bird and the 350 qx3 flies either at a schoolyard or the flying field. They can be a lot of fun but it is easy to loose orientation so I keep them fairly close to me.

I have a small one I have messed with from time to time, in the house or yard.    Take some getting used to for sure, like a heli, you need to use rudder in those turns.    lol..

For something that is taking over the hobby it is pretty quiet around our area.

Yeah, for something that is such a "problem" you would expect to have actually seen one around. Seems like the rhetoric is fading a bit though.

 I still think cell phones are more dangerous having recently been re-ended and having a car totaled by a kid who was texting. At least he didn't have any insurance   :offtopic:

There are a couple phantom size ones ( I'm pretty sure that's what they are.) in my neighborhood. Just since Christmas. They are not staying in anyone's back yard, so I've no idea where they belong.

Thermals---I need thermals!

I'm still hovering on the kitchen table, trying not to damage the blades. The cats are fascinated.

I would like to try a scale helicopter with all the gyros.  Maybe a UH-1 with some cool lights and sliding doors.

That is one ugly chopper.  Aren't good flying machines supposed to be aesthetically pleasing?

Somewhat impatiently awaiting the arrival of my DJI Mavic Pro which is scheduled to arrive tomorrow 1/30. Also fly a Syma quad as well as a mini drone, whose make and model escape me.
