Yeah my setup like Mark's is pulling about ~20-21 amps.

Were spining big blades at lower rpm's.

I am running 10S, I think Mark was running 11s so it makes sense his is a little lower.

Higher voltage setup will draw less amps.

Enigma, what's your power setup?

I have a logo showing up tomorrow for a backup heli, I'll have to check my amp draw when I get it in the air.

My new set up is a Hacker c50-10xl, CC45HV and a 5S 5000mAh prodigy pack, along with 5S emolis for back up until my second prodigy pack arrives. The original set up with the A30-8xl actually pulled more amps, had less power and shorter flight times. The c50 rocks in this bird! I'm looking into stretching to 550mm and lowering the speed a little as well.

Yep, I'm running the FlightPower Evo 20's in an 11S 5000 configuration.

Mike came over around 9am. We photographed the two real estate jobs with the pole and the Electric Raptor. Then we packed the Gasser up and headed into Fort Worth to shoot some larger speculative jobs.

We returned to get a couple of final shots of the back of one of the first jobs at 6:30 pm.

I told Mike, "Man I wish this could be an average day at the office!"

When we shot the pics of the Pier One Headquarters, their security squad paid us a visit. They weren't happy about us shooting photos of their building. We launched from a public park across the street and their head dude walked over to see who we were. After some polite conversation he relaxed and it was all good.

OK Mike and Mark.

I think I no longer like you two. :wink:

Sounds like one heck of a day you had.

Nice you two could get out together during the week.

Here's another one that we took. I've been envisioning this one for a while. It's really awsome to have a pilot that can take you where you need to go to get the shot. Mark is DA MAN!

Mike,

The downtown sky line one is just awesome!

Hope you guys can make some cash off of that one!

Sun was shining this morning, so here is one of mine on the way into work.

Nice shot Scott!

Hey, I'm a poet and didn't know it! :wink:

I really like the way you can see the tracks in the morning dew from where the greens keeper mowed. It gives it a crisp fall early morning dew wet golf shoes kindof a feel to the image where otherwise you wouldn't even realize there's a heavy dew on the ground. Plus the tracks make cool ovals that replicate the other ovals in the image somewhat. And Man! Look at those trees. The trees here just go from a half dead looking green from the summer heat, to an all dead ugly brown once the Blue Northers start rolling in.

Thanks for the kind words. Mark and I both are looking forward to seeing some return on investment. This stuff is just too much fun!

Mike

Nice shoot'n Scott

One of those guys left their chip shot short!

The pressure was really on with the added aerial surveilance!

How much did the other guy pay you? :wink:

Default Maiden AP sortie with my Trex

Finally got some stills from my Trex/Askman mount/Samsung Digimax S800 AP rig. Cheap D/L vid plus VR Goggles worked great

This is Macquarie University in Sydney Australia

Couple of shots from on the way home from up north this weekend.

It was an awesome weekend to close up the place. Wakeup to 30 degrees, but clear blue skies, sunshine, and temp went up to 76 today. Thursday night ( 4 days from this great 76 degree day ) is calling for snow!!
