    Can this become serious?

    Phantoms (and parts) appear to be made from recycled yoghurt pots, unfortunately.

    Today you have to be registered in UK to fly

    Answer my own question - direct from the CAA website: You must have two registrations in place before you fly a drone or model aircraft that’s 250g to 20kg: anyone who will fly must pass a theory test to get a flyer ID the person that’s responsible for the drone or model aircraft must...

    Today you have to be registered in UK to fly

    Do you have to register to own a drone? Or just to fly one? I've read conflicting stuff. Interesting that the CAA has put a positive spin on this as a 'lost drone' service.

    BBC Documentary Parody about Drones that I made.

    You missed the anti-Brexit slant that permeates all BBC output :) Very nicely done though.

    Phantom 4 white spots and vertical lines on bright scene.

    Sounds like you're sorted by FYI my P4P had the same issue and it was the camera ribbon cable - the old one didn't look damaged.

    Need help understanding the Panorama Sphere mode photos

    Happy to meet up & fly anywhere interesting (I'm near Weobley). I have a pair of P4P, I'm PfCO but lapsed whilst seeing what the CAA are going to do with registrations/restrictions.

    Lovely area but the guy next to the bridge with the (pay to get in) gardens really doesn't like them. A

    Need help understanding the Panorama Sphere mode photos

    Been a while since I did these but you use a pano program (i used Microsoft ICE) to create a rectilinear pano (2:1 aspect ratio) and then use an online viewer (I used 360player - Embed 360 degree images on your website for Free) to create an immersive 360 view. An example 360player -...

    Which is better DJI Phantom 4 standard or DJI Phantom 3 Professional

    Slightly OT but I had a P3A for years, great machine and still flying (a friend owns it). I now fly P4P and I would suggest stretching your budget to a P4P if at all possible - the camera is very impressive and the P4P is amazing stable (it's always windy in the UK!) All my P4 batteries have...

    Hooking up tablet to P4P+? Possible?

    I have two P4P, a standard model running a Huawei M3 tablet and the P4P+ with built-in display. To my surprise I find myself flying the P4P+ all the time because of the convenience and screen performance. I would like to sell the P4P standard but would miss Litchi operation, can a tablet be...

    Jail drop from Drone

    In the UK the source of contraband within prisons was mostly found to be...... ...prison officers. They actually had to set up a 'task force' for it. Still, who doesn't love a little drone-bashing in the MSM?

    Should I get an Osmo Pocket for My Cruise?

    I should add that I don't work for DJI, no commercial connection,etc,etc If I had to add some constructive criticism it would be: - not waterproof, possibly not even that water resistant - VERY easy to drop, due to a strange combination of very small form factor and lightweight makes it...
