Very nice weather: around 20°C and blue skies. Hardly any wind at first, but it got stronger during the afternoon.

First flight was mostly tuning the new rotorblades to get them to track correctly. I adjusted a total of 3 turns to get it to an acceptable level. The black blade still is a bit low, but probably only 0.5 turn or so.

The Rx battery had the same problem as before. I’m guessing it is still warm from the flight. I’ll try to recharge it later.

Other flight where mainly to get some footage from my FlyCamOne2. There is still a big “wobble” all over the screen caused by the vibration, but it’s a lot better than the previous attempt.

The original recording was more than 20 minutes long, 800MB large and fairly boring. Here are some nice pieces. I used the Flash-video container with FLV1 video and MP3 audio; which should be fairly compatible across platforms and browsers.

    I removed the MKV-files and replaced them with FLV-variants. This allows for in-browser viewing, but uses non-open-source formats.
    Let me know what you think.
