    So some idiot shot my phantom3 advanced WITH 22.

    In no way do I condone trespassing and I'd never fly over private property but out of curiosity, if my lawn chair blew onto private property or my kids kicked a ball onto it or even if someone drove a RC car onto private property, is that trespassing as well? It's not me standing on the land...

    flying over water

    I fly over my lake all the time. Get good and comfortable with flying first and then take it out.

    Show off your Phantom 3 Videos

    Do the paraglide's catch thermals once they're in the air so do they have to glide down once they reach the limit of their winch? I learned to paraglide in Hawaii with a winch but you quickly outgrow it and launch from the hills and ride the ridge lift.

    Statue of Liberty

    So I'm in New Jersey today. Want to do this but is it legal? Am I going to get arrested? Don't want that to happen!

    That's what I have been doing. It's the only way. It's obviously effective and the way to do when flying at a new site but with my phantom 2vision+ I was able to plot waypoints on a map before launch and set it on its way. I think this feature is handy and desirable and wish I had the option...

    That's true. I'm not writing off this feature entirely. It's nice to be able to set the waypoints manually but I live on a lake and I know the whole thing very well by now. I know the altitude of the trees around me. What I wanted to do however is plot a course along the shore all the way...

    Yeah, I find it pretty annoying too because the initial fight to get the waypoints just drains the battery for no reason.

    Whats your Range on your P3P ?

    I got 1400 ft. That's 2.65 miles. All stock. Could have gone farther but I was afraid of the battery life. Not sure how I did it, maybe the area I was in. I can't get that distance in populated areas.

    Follow me functions with P3P??

    Just because a particular feature might not be useful to you and even if you could never see a reason for you to use it doesn't mean someone else wouldn't find a purpose for it. I never use IOC but it's a cool feature that I'm sure some people find useful. We shouldn't be so narrow minded...

    DBS MODS ITELITE Antenna Install

    I got to 14000 ft before I turned around. Landed with 35% battery left so next time I'll push it to the 3 mile mark. Don't think I'll try any further then that. 14000 ft was scary enough. I want my baby over my head at 20%.

    Fair price to charge real estate

    Haha. Can't tell if your joking or not but it's an expression that means not working ok the books. I got paid in cash, no taxes.

    Fair price to charge real estate

    I'm not angry. Bit defensive and I apologize for that but my question was not actually answered. Instead it was relieved as if a criminal was asking. True it's not actually legal to make some money without the proper approval but it seems to me like a minor indiscretion. I served in the...

    Phantom recovery mid free fall

    It's not. I have a pro to record it with. I put 1,200 for an advanced plus taxes and such.
