This was a short impromptu test flight with my CTH Albatross that I flew shortly after sunset at my usual site on South Maui. I was prepping batteries for tomorrow and realized it was almost sunset and perhaps the wind would die down as it often does, so I went out and resulted in this short test flight.
I had two primary test goals, new 5G8 antennas I made on the video transmitter and both receivers, and new PID settings for level flight mode to reduce oscillations and wagging. The level mode was much improved (Horizon mode on Baseflight) but the antennas didn’t have as great performance as I hoped. My goggles VRX signal quality was pretty crappy compared to the signal the DVR/LCD VRX was showing me, so I flew most of the flight using the LCD.
