I’m going to experiment with writing flight logs. This will probably evolve over time as I think of things I’d like to capture.
Today I went out with the Blade 450, put four batteries through it in the snow (!). Despite being 1-2C outside the batteries performed well, giving 6 mins each and when returning home and checking they were all showing 35-40% left in them.
Mostly I was practising hovering, moving to side on hovering. I’ve wound the expo up to 40% on Aileron and Elevator, seems to help me with keeping it stable. Doing circuits I find it seems to get away with me as I turn it around to come back long the edge of the circuit, gaining speed which I have difficulty bleeding off. Good session though!
Cell balance was as follows:
|Pack #||V Max-Min|
Trying out the parallel charge lead for the first time, I find one of the connectors is duff, most likely my soldering at the join. A shame I didn’t know this before I wrapped it all in heat shrink!
