    Two tips that I find helped the same issues with my GoPro 2 1) Make sure the battery is fully charged. 2) Format the card on the computer, then in the camera each time. Gord

    Wild Goose Chase! With a Phantom….

    On my very first flight I "Buzzed" some Canadian Geese. In the video below, at the 38 second point, which the link takes you to directly you can see the impact. I was flying over them and lost altitude and they moved a little away. Without any additional noise I would think it would be hard to...

    Even if there was no frequency issues the range of the GoPro is less than 50 yards.

    Introducing the iPhantom

    Creative, I can't wait to see the video. I suspect it will be shaky because of the zip tie mount directly to the landing struts. I am thinking that the field of view will be much narrower than the GoPro, but that is what I would like to see. If that is an expensive phone then I would worry...

    Repair or Replace propeller motor????

    I knew I needed to replace the motor, I just didn't want to accept that. Needed to hear it from others. So it will be grounded for awhile :(

    Repair or Replace propeller motor????

    Hi, I recently had a run-in with my phantom and a tree. I just noticed that one of the motors is making a funny noise. I have a link to a 30 second video so you can hear the noise. I have a few questions: 1) I have already flown with this noise, and everything was fine. Should I continue to...

    Weird GoPro question

    I don't believe GoPro has that setting for the still shots. You can correct in post editing, but this can be painful without the correct software. I use Lightroom, and you can crop and adjust one photo and then copy the edits from that photo to all the photos from the shoot with easy selection...

    First Incident with a Tree

    Nope, I had to drive home, 5 minutes, to get it. It was at the very end of the trimmers length. As this was just a test flight, I didn't go very far from home.

    First Incident with a Tree

    Let me start by saying that I am still learning how to fly this beast, and having a good time learning. On my first few flights I noticed that I was unable to determine which direction the craft was pointing when it got a long distance away from me (one football field). At times it would look...

    Flying over whitewater

    Very nice shots. I especially like the slow pan of the camera. I can't get mine to do a slow pan, did you make any adjustments in the controls, or is it just practice?

    Maiden Flights

    I received my Phantom a couple of weeks ago, and I am just getting around to creating a short video of the maiden flights. I was unable to get the Phantom into compass calibration mode until after the first flight. I am not sure if this was a contributing factor in me "crashing" twice on the...

    Phantom won't go into gps/compass calibration mode

    I experienced a similar issue, but it was after a firmware upgrade, but on my very first flight. No mater how many times I tried the quick 10 switch trick it would not work. So I took off and flew it until the battery needed to be swapped. With a fresh battery I tried again, and it went into...
