After submitting another three pictures, one of last three was selected to be voted. Unfortunately it’s a Wechat (the Chinese social media, or mainly Read More
A couple of weekends ago we did some aerial photography shots using one of our quadcopters. Yes, we currently possess four of those amazing quads in different sizes. To be precise, three flying ones and one is currently out of action We used this quad, FH410, which we also brought to Indonesia and flew him Read More
The latest iteration my F450, it became the foldable carbon fibre DH410 frame which fits into a normal rucksack. The longish shape makes it easier to navigate around, in comparison with the F450 with its pure X shape, very light too. The general idea is to tremendously increase its portability.

Pardon the novice piloting skill, lacking of gimbal and inexperienced cinematography skill. Baby steps ey! Ever since I graduated from the Syma toy quadcopter, the F450 is just an Read More
Both of our quadcopters are unwell at the moment, we are waiting for the new bits and bobs from Taobao! Thank you CHome Service for the Taobao support. Update: currently we have the third quadcopter, the F330.
Cinta (Matt) flew it on campus today. It weighs close to nothing, 103gram in total (with the propeller guards and a tiny camera). We think it is the most sensible way for me to start with, before graduating to Cinta’s (more powerful) quadcopter. Baby steps!
