I drove up to Potterville, MI today for a short indoor testing session on my Chambermaid NoCal. It was very stable. I had this outside in December, but under very limited testing. With light breezes and very low winds, I couldn’t really test it beyond knowing it would fly reliably.
Today was really limited testing also, but with more power and no wind. I flew one flight with the 7″x7P prop and didn’t care for the way it zoomed up to the ceiling, so I swapped the prop for a 7″x10P prop, gave it some minor thrust adjustments and got some very stable flights
I put in about 1250 turns on the ~24″ loop of 1/8 rubber and watched it cruise around very smoothly. Here are a couple photos followed by a video.
