After building several miniquads I wanted something a little ‘different’ to work on, so I ordered the v4 tricopter from RCExplorer – that’s David Windestål’s site, you might recognise him if you watch Flite Test or Rotor Riot. I figured I’d share some pictures from the build, along with my thoughts. Overall I have to say that I love the ‘copter & it’s a joy to fly, but it was definitely the trickiest build I’ve done to date (despite being the largest overall!) & it left me quite frustrated in several places.
Back in September 2015 I had the idea of shooting a bunch of video ‘behind the scenes’ at Freshers Week, with the vision of turning it into a ‘documentary’ of sorts. Some 10 months later I’ve finally started going through the footage & throwing something together, which probably won’t appeal to anybody that isn’t/wasn’t on the Ents Crew, but has still been an entertaining endeavor. Predominantly shot on my a6000 with the Sigma 30mm 2.8 (so no IS), with a couple extra shots from Ryo shot on his EOS M.
First video below, the YouTube playlist is here.
It finally happened. I lost my Clip.
To be honest I’d expected this to happen a long time ago; even though I intentionally didn’t wear it to gigs or anything like that, I never felt that the actual clip part had enough strength or grip. But then I broke that rule & wore it to Grad Ball & can only assume that it got brushed off my jacket & ended up on the floor.
Picking up just after the last post, PhotoSoc peeps taking over an after party.
Took some snapsh!ts on the beach on Sunday morning after Grad Ball, loving the Fuji X70 for its film simulations for casual snapping.
