This post is the 12th in a series of posts about the adventure of building the world’s lightest brushless FPV quadcopter: project pepperF1SH.

Lunch break -- check
No rain? -- check
No wind? -- not really
Batteries charged -- only 3, check

Let’s fly! This was the first time I have flown the pepperF1SH outside — and it rocks! Even though it was quite windy today it was flying quite well:

In this video team pepperF1SH member Sebastian did some quick flips and rolls on our lunchbreak. Enjoy!

This was all untuned, stock PIDs and with unfortunate expo settings, notice how robotic this thing can fly! It is really locked in… I am always fascinated how well the betaflight pid controller flies with stock pids. No matter if it is a 500g beast or this fly weight…

      1) flight time has to be tested, i get > 6 minutes of hovering time. I expect >3 minutes of flight time.
      2) Yes, as long as you use the Frsky D protocol transmitter module
