Night Flight after finally fixing radio signal loss!

I’m relatively new to flying and it was my first time using the skyviper but I think it did really well!

Add some excitement.

Download “Tower” or QGroundControl on your phone and connect to the SV with it.

Set these parameters appropriately.

Then take off and set mode to Circle. Use the Yaw to keep your subjects in the center and get a nice video shot.

Also, try Throw mode.

Awesome! Will do! I’m very glad I found this forum and looking forward to getting/sharing tips from the community. Appreciate the tip my friend!

I’m still amazed that the SV2450gps actually flies Tower missions. Ardupilot, who knew?

Throw mode is a mind-blower.

How does it know what to do?

Great shot!! I wish I coulda gotten up last night before the storm hit. The storm clouds were amazing! Lighting was perfect for the SV’s sensor too.

BTW, ditch those prop guards :wink: Those props are almost indestructable (many of us have unofficially tried) You’ll find it handles much better also.

I agree prop guards are just parasitic drag .My experience with skyviper says The motors and gears will be destroyed long before any real damage will occur to props.

Thanks. I’m used to flying 3DR Solo without guards. Don’t particularly like them anyway–they’re gone.

I wish the 2450’s camera were better but I do like the lens flare.

I agree. The props are indestructible, but the gears not so much. After snagging tree branches a couple times I’ve stripped the front right prop gear. I bought a SV on ebay for parts and replaced the gear. I need to shim the motor for improved gear mesh. I’ve learned to hit the kill button pretty quick if things get out of hand. A ‘short’ fall doesn’t seem to do any harm.
