This video shows the aftermath of a Typhoon H attacked by a Hawk. It demonstrates the survival instinct of the H and it's ability to recover from a severally damaged motor. Thanks to Ron Montroy for providing the original footage of his flight.
It's not really just a normal video. With the slow motion added it shows how the H responds to a damaged motor. There are very few of those and perhaps none as vivid as this one. You did a fantastic job in getting the H back on the ground. If the H had been lower the outcome may have been different. Thanks so much for providing this footage Ron.I was thinking of posting that here, just didn't think I could do it outside of the pictures section.
That was awesome to see on video! Now I know my next craft will be a hex. Good to see what the 5-motor mode will do when the battery still has power to land the craft.
Yea I'm looking at the formula for Fthrust very interesting.Any hex or octo with adequate reserve thrust (headroom) can safely fly after losing one or two motors. The H does not have much thrust headroom so they came up with the reversing motor concept to provide continued function in the event of a single motor loss. It works surprisingly well.
