I thought I'd transform my Yellow Mellow Fellow into an indoor and outdoor HD filming quad.
Becauce the frame is a stretched-X there is a little bit of props in view, in the conventional construction.
By assembling the motors facing downwards, I now have an unobstructed camera view.
Because of this mounting method and the prop guards, the prop size increased from 2,5" to 2,8".
I am still waiting for the Cadxx turtle to arrive, then this baby will be ready to rip and roll.
Footage will follow soon.
