Some More Adventurous Quadcopter Flying (H107CHD)

Another flight with my H107CHD quadcopter.

This time it was sunny with a slight breeze.

I have continued to get used to flying this quadcopter with faster flying more turns and low altitude flight.

HD Cam x4 Quadcopter flight

Here is another video of my new x4 quadcopter with HD camera.

This time the weather was much better but was still a bit too windy to take it too high up.

The image quality from the camera on this copter is much better than my previous custom jobs with keyring cameras.

Flying with the birds

This is a new record for me regarding aerial photography. I flew my x4 quadcopter up to its highest (camera attached) altitude yet and got some nice footage of Portsmouth.

Look out for the flock of birds!

Flying my x4 quadcopter (with loops and rolls)


This is an amazing machine for its price. It is an extremely stable quad copter capable of loops and rolls. If you are thinking of getting someone a helicopter like gadget for christmas, you should spend a few extra pounds on one of these.

Helicopter Camera Pod Mod

I have had this idea for a while now but have had to wait till I got a helicopter with a decent fuselage to attach a camera pod to. Most reasonably priced helicopters that come with a camera are not very good so I have always wanted a mod a camera onto a decent single rotor one.

I recently brought the Hubsan Lynx single rotor that has a nice amount of flat space to attach an adhesive strip to.

This is a really simple mod. All you need is some picture hanging strips and a spy camera.

There is a large selection of spy cameras on Amazon and I brought a few different types to mess around with. The one that I decided to use with this mod fits the hanging strip nicely so I chose that one.

All you need to do is attach one strip to the camera…

…and the other to the underbelly of the helicopter.

The camera sticks really well and I am sure it will hold just fine.

The only problem I see so far is that the camera protrudes the landing gear so taking off could be tricky.

That’s all for now. Will hopefully test it at the weekend.

A Second Sky Spy

Modelzone have been selling their Sky Spy stock at half price so I thought it was a good time to replace my wobbly old one. The one I got was an ex display model so I got an extra tenner off.

Here is a short flight of it with the charge it already had.
