Bonus videos

Fairly good attempt at a 5 Second flight with a Landing….


Diizzy footage from on board during the “Plus” flight.  I cut the start a bit too tight and missed takeoff…

Congratulations on your sucessful hovers so far!

After reading the Code Test update with the question about the correct sign for the differential correction I was somehow expecting to see 2 different videos that both did not work out as intended.

Seeing that great "+hover" instead was a fantastic experience. Somehow it felt like I was witness to something with "greater" significance even if some might consider the a rocket power hover to be nothing special.

So congratulations again and keep up the good work!

Ona sidenote: I noticed in the video that there is a strong rotation of the vehicle which builds up over time (this can be seen even more dramatically in the onboard-footage). Do you have problems with "rotation compensation" (I do not know the correct term for this...)? Or has that part just not yet been tweaked enough?
