The maiden flight was bit dicey or squirrely.
I made a few adjustments and then tried again. The landings... well lets just say the pilot needs practice.
The Bush Mule is a forgiving plane when it comes to piloting mistakes and the landing gear are stronger than I thought! I really like the look and sound of the twin props too.
I am using a 1.3 GHz 400mw Video Transmitter, APM Pro flight controller with separate Minimin OSD board and the EZUHF 433 MHz LRS. This is very similar to my SkyWalker system so I will include some links below for the equipment setup. The Bush Mule does have flaps and a cargo bay door and reversing so two extra channels will be added for those servos. Later a camera pan/tilt will be added for a better FPV experience.
