We live on 3 acres here in Jefferson County WV, and even with that the neighbors are too **** close! Any land for sale up your way @WV. Rootman - 50 or more acres?
Hope everyone's doing good, and staying healthy!
I've done the launch and recovery, but only from a small pontoon boat on the Potomac River near Harpers Ferry West Virginia --
My friend (who owns the boat) is a very steady guy, and was able to catch my drone safely while we were drifting.
and my favorite --
This is exactly my first thought.
Set up the dinghy - launch the drone - shoot pictures/videos of the sailboat when it sails by - have someone you trust to hand catch your drone when landing.
I would only land in Sport Mode. Do not trust it to 'Come Home' on it's own. To many variables...
I would have jumped on this. Even have experience launching and recovering from a moving small pontoon boat on the Potomac River, but - sucks being handicapped (drunk driver wiped me out). I have posted this on my other social media outlets.

That's the one - make certain that it's a OEM DJI ribbon cable, and not a knock-off!!
I'm not sure, but I think there's a vendor here that sells the OEM ones. If not - you can find it on Amazon, and FleaBay.
Have you had a crash with this drone? If so - like what was posted already - it's the dreaded bad ribbon cable. I know - I've been there. There's also a few videos on YouTube on how to replace it. If I can do it - ANYONE can!
Got it today, and it's even better in person that described online! Just the right size for when we take our cross-country trips, and/or plane trips.
THIS THING IS BEAST!!
Thanks again for a great DJI deal!!
