Entry: Day Three – The Pit
04/18/2023: Finally, I had some time to take my third flying lesson. The goal today was to try to keep the FW330 over our fire pit. It seemed like an easy task, being that I was easily hovering over the grass, but once I tried to keep it over the fire pit, I felt as though I was all over the place! At one point, James set it down and we thought we broke a prop! We didn’t thankfully, it was just a piece of charred wood. Weather was decent. There was some wind, but not too terrible, and in true Florida fashion it was hot and sunny – so sunny that my eyes kept watering! I can tell you, it is not easy to see your aircraft when you are crying, LOL.
James also had me turn the multi-rotor 90 degrees and play around with a different orientation. That experience was interesting to say the least. I played around a bit with figuring out what directions I needed to move the sticks to get it to go where I wanted. My biggest issue was the lag time between when I moved a stick and when I expected the Flame Wheel to move. Overall, today was a great flying day!
