Quite a windy day, great opportunity to test the skills of the little watcher and get some closeup footage of the flight, thrust vectoring and active wing compensation. Amazing little thing started the build journey very rough, not even hovering properly and crashed tens of times. But now it turned out to be the most skilled watcher I have built, which I have learned configuration tricks from which I will use on the bigger units. If you like aeronautics and flight in general you will definitely enjoy this video, especially the close-ups. I changed the attack angle setting multiple times during the flight so some passes have the higher and some have the lower attack angle.

Indoors hover maiden of the bigger Ardupilot unit. Looks pretty well balanced and controllable. Ourtoors is a completely different game and may immediately crash, but this is a good start.

The new sub250g unit. There is a little bit of flutter but other than that flies like a charm & looks like it will exceed 10 minutes flight time which is pretty impressive for a tiny VTOL like this

Strong winds and a good test. The new unit handles very well but needs a little further tuning. Good test with some awesome close-ups.This tiny one can get +10 minute flight time

The wind is so strong it knocks down the unit before take-off, so I have to hold it down. Good test, a couple of glitches that will need to be adjusted.

After many motor failures, testing a modified EDF motor in hover. Position and altitude hold. This is an Ardupilot Arduino hybrid. Windy day testing the skills of the unit...
