This has close to neutral 'buoyancy' in the air and therefore is reasonably easy for 'fine' manoeuvring.

- Camera 1
- Pitch = forward / reverse.
- Roll = (swivel) left/right.
- Yaw left - thrust down.
- Yaw right - thrust up.
- AG4 for main engine.
- AG5 for booster (fast forward).

1. AG4 to launch Drone.
2. Yaw right (thrust up) until clear.
3. AG5 for speed.

Feel free to use.

    Same issue. If set upa rotor as manual ie. control prop without a governor, its not bad, but requires a lot of finicky handling with prop pitch and throttle so engines don’t overspeed... painful @PyrusEnderhunter

    @PyrusEnderhunter I tried making a quad copter, but very difficult to get the propellers really controllable (up/down and left /right etc.) so I went for jet engines and RCNs instead.

    @SpiritusRaptor I know, but this is a weird drone.

    @PyrusEnderhunter Something you can fly around the place?!? Like a quad copter but using a jet engine instead.
