    OK, my apologies for not updating more often. My alerts for this thread got turned off at some point. I just haven't been very active with this forum or my Phantom lately. I'm not sure why Ramphex hasn't been updating the 1st post. There's nothing I can do about that. But I'll keep...

    Searles Castle - Windham, NH

    We took a motorcycle trip out to New Hampshire. Along the way, we stopped at my namesake's castle. I brought the Phantom with me. Hope you enjoy.

    Can someone tell me what happened? Scared to fly now.

    Posted the clip in a few other places. It was brought to the attention that the the props never enter the shot. With that much tilt and I had a high frame rate because of the time of day, I would have seen the props in the shot and the gimbal would have still tried to auto-level. IMU...

    Can someone tell me what happened? Scared to fly now.

    I thought it would be a good idea to update the firmware for everything since I hadn't done it in a while. But after this, I'm inclined to leave well enough alone. Anyway, did all 3 batteries, the bird, and the RC. Popped it up for a quick flight, about a minute or 2, and everything seemed to...

    Litchi App

    Quickest way to abort a mission is to flip the switch. (Go from F to P mode on the P3, I'm not sure what it is on the P4). The other thing you can do is pull back on the right stick and it will fly the mission in reverse. The RTH will simply land if you are within 20 meters (65 feet) of the...

    Grand Haven MI - July 4, 2016

    I heard Grand Haven's fireworks were pretty good. Nice pictures. Muskegon really outdid themselves this year too. There were too many people to fly near Muskegon's show. I wanted to fly during Twin Lakes' show since we watch from some private property. But everyone around the lake was...

    Taking control during a Litchi mission?

    You can also pull back on the right stick and it will fly the mission in reverse. One thing I've learned to do is set the cruising speed low to start. I get close to my first waypoint, and let it creep there. Then I hit pause, bump the speed back up to where I need it. It prevents such...

    Do you put your name/info on your drone?

    My FAA number and my cell number are on the sticker. Sticker is inside the battery compartment at the bottom. Legal, since it doesn't require any tools to get to. I don't have a name or address on there. I have no intention of running and hiding from an incident that is my fault. However...

    Was I trolling?

    You've got your log, you've got your footage. You're fine. Tell her that if you going to use your quad to spy on someone, it would be someone much better looking than her!

    Cinematographer Flight patterns

    When you sign up, there's a Facebook group you get invited to. Sharing similar successes with each shot. I'm happy I paid for the classes. A lot of it is very easy, sometimes too simple to think ahead of time how nice a shot could look. Good overall tutorial on Litchi and using their hub. A...
