And that idiot is me!
Yes.. I built a 5″ racing quad and the very first time I fly it, I crash it into the side of my head. A bit of blood and shock set in as I try to figure out if my ear is still attached.
The back story:
I decided I really wanted to get into FPV and quadcopters, so I built a kick ass 5″ quad. I was going to do a video series, What to build a quad with, The build video and my first flight, where I promised the first time I fly it, I crash into my head.
So I am leading off the series with this video… ENJOY.. oh and Spoiler.. My ear is still attached…

First flight thoughts: (Besides crashing into my head)
Flew awesome. The 007’s worked GREAT. Makes me wonder how good a good set is like fatshark. No oscillation in the cam feed. Quad flew smooth and controlled well.
I was surprised how well I did in Air Mode for the first time flying.
I can’t wait to fly again…
IDIOT Crashes his DRONE into his HEAD the first time he ever flies it.
