I think I'm finally getting the hang of it, though I dare not fly in anything above a light breeze. Accidentally switched on stunt mode this evening which caused some confusion, but I can now fly around the place without breaking my drone which is a real step forward :)

+Steve Byrne I've been out all day filming the MD3 on the top of a great viewpoint, strong wind blowing and sunshine! I now have to put it all together for video.

So I ran my microdrone into a tree and I bent a couple of arms, so replaced them - no problem there. But - I also changed the props at the same time, and didn't realise that the 2 red and 2 black props are different for each side - 1 for the anticlockwise rotor and 1 for the clockwise rotor. So initially my drone just flipped over. All good once I swapped the 2 red blades around. Didn't notice any mention of the fact that the blades are side specific in the manual though.

+Steve Byrne Yes, would be great for them to be marked for quick and easy swapping. Once you've done it a couple of times it does get easier to remember.

Hi - thanks for dropping by. I write about my life here at Lackan Cottage Farm, in Co.Down, Northern Ireland, with my wife Claire, our dog Sirus, Sherafey the horse and several chickens. I turn bowls on a foot powered pole lathe, make a variety of things from recycled materials, and we grow our own veg. We are living off grid, in a converted horsebox, generating our own electricity and living as lightly as possible. This year the adventure will take another turn, as we start to develop our permaculture smallholding, and welcome our first new human family member.
Introduction
We are Steve and Claire Golemboski-Byrne, and this is the ongoing saga of life at Lackan Cottage Farm, in the Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland, where we live with  our dog Sirus, Sherafey the horse and several chickens. I turn bowls on a foot powered pole lathe, make a variety of things from recycled materials. Claire is a gardener and garden designer, and is the veg, herb and flower growing expert. We are living off grid, in a converted horsebox, generating our own electricity and living as lightly as possible as we renovate the cottage here, and begin to develop a permaculture smallholding.
