First Flight with SK450 Dead Cat Quadcopter
After I built my quadcopter and waited months for this year’s particularly long and severe winter to end, I took my SK450 Dead Cat out in the back yard for a test flight. My first day of flying was fairly successful; I did some maneuvering, some high-altitude flying, and captured some pretty cool footage. Unfortunately, the day ended with a propeller embedded in the ground and one of the quadcopter’s arms snapped in half. So I need to effect some repairs on the craft and do some more tuning.
When you first start flying quadcopters, you will crash a lot so just be prepared for that – emotionally and with spare parts.
