DP2 now flying free!

Hi everyone,

after I realised that balloons depend on windfree days, I looked for a way to overcome that dependancy and built a free flying remotecontrolled oktokopter for the DP2

It has a hightsensor, kompass and GPS build in and can hold the position in the air even against pretty strong winds automatically.

Here´s the first test-flight with the camera attached.
