RAW maiden flight of RMRC StratoSurfer. (no audio)
RMRC StratoSurfer
Tattu 4200mah 3S battery
Matek F405-Wing FC running ArduPlane 3.9.6
RMRC mini GPS
RMRC 1.3ghz 400mw VTX
RunCam Owl Camera
FrSky R9 RX
Craft & Theory Telemetry Cable (for s.port inversion)

Making adjustments to the FPV gear. Switching from 1.3ghz to 5.8, Modified Camera settings, and re-organized the OSD fields to my standard layout. Also need to pull the FC and fix a booboo I made. Duh, I set the VTX/CAM voltage regulator to 12v. That would be fine on 4S, but on 3S, it is causing problems since the regulator can not pull up to 12v and ends up dropping V further, especially as you get further on in the pack an voltage starts sagging.

Forgot this thing has a rudder. Need to coordinate turns too. LOL

Cheers!

RMRC Nano Skyhunter maidenish...

I did an Autotune on this flight. Basically, you flip into autotune, then bang sticks. It starts out very undertuned and slow, then gradually the FC makes adjustments based on the reaction it sees. Do Roll or pitch, but not both at same time. You just need to do full stick deflections. I chopped a bunch out of the middle which was just kinda cruzing around.

Cheers!

Not happy with the default OSD layout for ArduPlane? It's a piece of cake to change in the latest Mission planner. Drag and Drop much like in the *Flight OSD configurator. There are a few parameters that do not have check boxes, so I had to enable those fields via the parameter tree, then drag them to the right place. Font is configurable too, but does not show in the config screen. Alignment of the Center crosshair is off if you use NTSC rather than PAL. There is a line near the bottom that has "pal" next to it showing where the screen cuts off for the two formats.
