[Quadcopter ZMR250] Maiden Flights, Maiden Crashes

This was more testing if the quad was functioning than anything else, and since I had both the blackbox data and video footage, decided to experiment a little.

This quadcopter is a lot harder than my little Cheerson CX-10 (which I also never fly outside), but that’s probably more because of how I have the transmitter set up than anything else.

I’ll be throwing a new prop on for the one I bent flying and installing the FPV gear that I have, that might help with how I fly!
