AR DRONE 1080p Test 1 with the Contour HD mounted flat on indoor hull – FAIL

AR.Drone – user upload (video summary)

!!There is sound feedback and interference from the drone when its idle and the Contour HD is near it.!! My first flight with the Contour HD Contour HD was mounted horizontally flat Contour HD was mounted with a elastic velcro band on top of the indoor hull wrapped around through the whole hull in a cross form to avoid from blocking the bottom sensors and camera. I was experiencing issues due to the small the room and the uneven ground since it was taking off from the bed and there were blankets etc.. sensors on the bottom of the drone were getting confused since the height change when ever it was moved around the room. When working with the added weight of the Contour HD maneuverability is definitely reduced and unstable in the horizontal position since the weight is not evenly distributed on top of the hull, but workable as long as it is mounted vertically instead and you have space to lift off as well as the ground has to be fairly level. need to do more testing outside with more space and modify the indoor hull to fit the Contour HD inside the hull. Battery Specs: 1350MAH 3 Cell Lipo modified battery at 113 grams
