Pixel IV is now 100% carbon fiber, including fully molded main and tailrotorblades. Development went quite easy. As usual the most difficult step was to find the equilibrium between stability and maneuverability. I had set my target to beat 75 grams. Compared to Pixel II at 99 grams this seems to be almost impossible. When I finished it, and when I made it fly at 59.8 grams, I thought there was something wrong with my micro-balance. I checked on the other one and got the same weight. To be honest, I should mention that this low weight only gives me 1min30sec of autonomy. However, at 66.6 grams, with a slightly bigger battery, I fly almost 3 minutes. At 70 grams, I get 3minutes30 and more depending on the state of the battery. This is the first Pixel that I pushed into fast (well on it's level I mean) forward flight and it is doing great. It is the first Pixel as well that I lost out of sight! It disappeared under my transmitter tray! when flying close to me.
Enjoy the pictures!
