    Did you gain any insights using the wind tunnel ... or was it just a media event?

    Steve, at the :25 point of your final edit you are adjusting the Seawolf Pixim FPV cam, since you're running 6s for main power how are you powering the cam, with separate bat or from a voltage reg? I have the same camera on a hex build with 6s but haven't powered up the fpv cam yet.

    Thanks

    going over a pre flight, making sure the wires to be plugged in....

    i use Buck converters on everything. That one has a 12v doing the fpv cam and vtx, another at 5v doing the retracts
