Thread: excellent day!

  1. #1

    Default excellent day!

    excellent weather today, though i would have appreciated alittle more heat...

    i took my nitro helicopter out for a spin. deciding to try my newly aquired lens i attached my 30D with a 17-40 F4L(1day old) setting body on timer mode i brought it up for some shots. it turned out well on the LCD display for the first 10shots or so.

    until it's last flight, i flew it up to about 8stories high and WA LA! it came down as fast as it went up only this time it came with a loud here i have lying a useless pile of plastic, glass and metal.

    came home smiling to my wife. after dinner we went shopping and she got me another set of 20D and a 17-40 I LOVE MY WIFE! if u're wondering, nope i've no regrets of the pile of rubbish i created. i think it's art, be bold just do it!

    if i do that the heli is going to be highly unstable and secondly the body will be spinning as much as the blades are. it's not a feasible ideal but nice try!

    And I though I got bored in Singapore sometimes!

    Crazy (if not a wind up). For reference, for the money wasted in this stunt you could have got approx 1.5-2.0 flying hours in a decent (turbine) real helicopter or about 6 hours tuition in a little piston chopper. Of course, not in Singapore as I hear civilian helicopters are not allowed here?!?

    I calculate the camera weight as lens 475g + camera 700g = 1175g. Im no expert on model choppers, but this sounds like a hefty payload for a RC chopper. Not surprised you lost lift at 8 stories.

    You might also want to consider the result of the unit falling onto a child below. Irresponsible IMHO.
