So we were sitting around one day when Peter pipes up with the words, "I'm going to fly through the shop." My only concern was him neglecting to think about Josh's allergies.
The plan was this:
Step 1. Attach the Micro FPV Setup to the Pun Jet.
Step 2. Attempt to fly in the back doors...
...through the shop...
...and out the front door.
Step 3. Try to convince the landlord why we should get our deposit back.
FIRST ATTEMPT REPORT:
Altitude was too low. It was very difficult to see the entryway.
To help line up the shot we used a flashlight for guidance. Thanks again Curt Barret! (Trimax on the forums)
SECOND ATTEMPT REPORT:
This is the last frame of the FPV for attempt 2. Even with the guiding light it was too difficult to see the entrance through the camera.
Even after literally flying full speed into a brick wall, the Pun Jet only sustained a bit of fin damage and a chip in the prop.
THIRD ATTEMPT REPORT:
The first LOS flight was the furthest yet. We did run into some troubles, and by 'run into' I mean slam and by 'troubles' I mean vintage locker.
Again the Pun Jet kept fighting; a bit of leading edge damage and a broken prop.
FOURTH ATTEMPT REPORT:
Standing in the field was a bit too far out to fly LOS. Once the plane entered the shop it was too difficult to see.
Stand right in the line of fire!
ATTEMPT FIVE REPORT:
Needless to say, DO NOT try to do this through your house! Your parents/spouse will blame us so don't say we didn't warn you.
Instead we recommend finding some holes in trees at your local park or, if you can, get access to an abandoned building where even if you wreck into a doorway you're not going to get yourself into trouble.
Due to INSANE demand from you guys we are going to be releasing the Pun Jet as a Speed Build Kit.
Keep your eyes open for a review, plans, and build video NEXT WEEK!
