How to mount Gopro HD camera on Align T-Rex 450 RC helicopter – Tutorial

Ok, here’s some much more online video on 720p setting. I have ultimately realised it really is not really worth trying capturing with 1080p setting on 450 dimension helicopter. 720p environment is very constant with photo quality and not acquiring ‘jello’ (wobble impact) irrespective rotor rpm. Here’ are few footages. www.youtube.com www.youtube.com A lot more comprehensive description and photos, you should go to the adhering to page. www.fb.com I’ve tried a hanging kind mount (free hanging with 2 axis), but it failed to work. The picture quality was catastrophic and made a decision to remain with this mounting technique. I believe this is very reasonable in phrases of price and quality. The only point you want is the one particular piece GoPro mounting from ‘roll bar’ mount which costs about £15. If you have any query, be sure to will not hesitate. Content flying :) ————————————————————- Sorry for the delay.men. I’ve managed to get some test video clips as promised :) www.youtube.com www.youtube.com ————————————————————————————– Okay, I have manufactured a rapid tutorial for safe mounting for gopro cam on T-Rex 450 Sport. Simply because I have been working all working day for bottom plate modification and examination flights at the back garden, I failed to get opportunity to go to the park and make examination flight video, but I assure I will do that very shortly. But I failed to see any jello-impact (on 1080p 30fps location) like I sometimes see on the preceding plastic base plate edition, and I feel this is as close as I

    my friend was selling up so i was very fortunate to buy his Trex 450 SE V2 at a reduced price and although i’ve never flown CP heli’s it was too good to pass up.

    So I bought a 4ch FP heli to learn on.

    What radio setup do you have so you fly FPV with distance as I am only flying by sight? at the moment, so rather short range.

    My Trex came with a programmable 6ch transmitter but as far as i know running on 2.4ghz, and doing lots of research.

    Any advice would be great.

    Regards Andrew.

    flies great for fpv?

  • shaun169:

    lol! you are? exploiting her!

  • 420choky:

    full fpv gear .. osd and 3000 mah batt? and a 21002s for vid . shes a piggy lol

  • shaun169:

    I prefer flybarless for sure. I have another tutorial/review clip with flybarless setup. If your fund stretches, go for FBL. I don’t think I’d ever go back to flybar.?

  • shaun169:

    lol! Is it 450? You have a? heavyweight flyer :p

  • lk1dare:

    do you prefer? a fly bar on your set up? I was going to setup my first heli and noticed u had both electronic and ….

  • 420choky:

    my trex is 1000 grams? hahahaha i call her miss piggy

  • shaun169:

    lol! I noticed just now. You are observant? ;p

  • omar khaled:

    did anyone else notice the? taylor swift song in the background “tear drops on my guitar” ??

  • shaun169:

    Glad I could? help. But just aware there will be change in flight characteristics cuz obviously it’s gonna be fat ass and cyclics and collectives will be sort of ‘damp’.
    Let me know how it goes with yours and ask me any question if you have any :)

    Thanks for the info! I might be shopping for a bigger battery to give it a try. I was afraid the extra weight would cancel the benefit of the larger capacity, but hearing that you got increased flight time? is encouraging. :)

  • shaun169:

    You are welcome :)
    For smaller battery I? normally set my alarm for 5mins and I’ve flown with the 4800mah battery couple times for about 12-13mins but I think I can fly up to 15mins without going lower than 3.7v for each cell. I usually use the bigger lipo for setting purpose though

  • 8180634:

    Great? vid, thanks for sharing this information! What flight time did you get wtih the larger battery compared to the smaller battery?

  • shaun169:

    Yeah, 450 is a very good size to start with. I tried with 200 size heli before which was too twitch. I think I’m gonna stick to 450 cuz I like it’s portability (small but stable enough which is a good compromising point – that’s why I stretched to 350mm blades for extra stability within 450 size) :)
    I see you are planning to go for a bigger heli in the future. I guarantee you will be also interested in FPV soon or later. Let me know if? you have any help or question any time 😉

  • onkelbolle:

    Hehe, as you? know by know I’m rather new to this hobby :) I’m a photographer and the utlimate goal is to fly around with my dSLR hanging under the helicopter. But a 450 sized heli and GoPro is a really good start.

  • shaun169:

    Glad I could help? :)
    Yeah, blade balancing and tracking are one of simple things could easily miss out. Hope you enjoy :)

  • onkelbolle:

    Dude, thank you! I figured that something seems to be wrong or uneven with one of my blades, so by adding some tape to one? of the blades near the head the jello effect was 100% fixed. I would never think of this if it was not for you, so thank you again :)

  • shaun169:

    No problem :) Just to let you know if it’s fuzzy, you can work around head speed. But if it’s wobbling (jello), you need to reduce the total heli vibration.? Try to locate the vibration by adding bits one by one and spool up – for example, only main shaft and spool up (of course with no blades), if no vibration then add tail hub, if no vibration then add tail blades and so on. You need to have minimal vibration before mounting the Gopro, otherwise no matter, what you will get jello

  • onkelbolle:

    Thank you! :)? Looking forward to see that. I’ve just started to use GoPro with my 450 heli and the jello effect is what I’m trying to illuminate… Great idea to mount the battery under :)
