    Uncertified Rogue Commercial Drone Operators

    Phantom 4 hand catch problem

    Prop guards didn't stop damage on a flip over landing gone wrong. I now hand catch most of the time Removed prop guards because they obstruct footage too much at ANY speed. At least the props themselves on appear slightly, when flying faster

    Annoyance Factor

    Haha let the Aussies join in too..... Any insurance you might hold be it part of the car registration (3rd party insurance) or even Full Comp insurance, if your licence is suspended or whatever you are NOT covered by insurance. It's also worth reminding insurance companies don't change pending...

    Hand catch my p4

    I've had my P4 for a very short time (1 week, 20 flights, 2.5hr flight time) so am very very new as you can see. The only issue or crash I had was on one landing (using the both sticks to bottom centre) on a slightly gusty/windy day where it landed but promptly flipped over destroying all the...
