      15.07.2015 - New old quad, predictable outcome

    The old Pepela was gathering dust for 4 years.
    I decided to revive it.
    New electronics, FPV gear, general cleanup, you name it.
    The frame was the same.

    The remote control was equipped with a screen, a video receiver and a video recorder.

    You might have noticed that it looks like a painted corpse.
    That's because it is.

    I was practicing FPV flying in a field, and...
    Let's just say it's a bad idea to turn sharply:

    The damage is not that bad - two broken props and some cracked plastic. The frame is not even bent.
    That was it's fifth flight. I expect it to fly more.
    A good camera and a proper OSD are on the way, so it will be only uphill from here.
