Tips for Flying the ELEV-8 Quadcopter

Tips for Flying the ELEV-8 Quadcopter

It may not feel like it here in Ohio (it’s snowing where I am) but spring is right around the corner. After being cooped up in my garage workshop all winter, I’m eager to do just about any project that will get me outside for the nice days ahead. Our friends Nick, Kevin, and Jess from Parallax must have read my mind because they just released this video with tips for getting started with their ELEV-8 Quadcopter. The video lays out the basic issues that beginners can face when learning to fly and how to fix them. Additionally, they give advice for getting the feel of the craft and how to avoid quad inflicted injuries.

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
