    FPV Camera??

    I like DJI Go, for the things it does, it works great, but it does not do waypoints or a true orbit video, I use those a lot when I fly. Also the "FPV Camera" app has a fpv mode, where it splits the screen in two, then you can use a pair of VR goggles to fly first person. Do you know if...

    FPV Camera??

    Well on DJI Go it went as far away as I wanted, it was only on the app "FPV Camera" that it wouldn't let me fly further than 60' away.

    FPV Camera??

    Over the last 5yrs or so I have had the P2, P3P and the P4, I sold each one to move to the next. About a year and a half ago my P4 literally fell out of the sky at 200ft while doing a waypoint mission through FPV Camera. To this day I don't know if it was that app or the fact I needed a...

    Busted P4 for sale

    Well, I was shooting some property for a realtor friend of mine, I did recover the sd card, but I gave it to him so he could pull the footage he needed from it. When I get it back from him, I'll check and see if the actual crash is on there and post if it looks interesting.

    Busted P4 for sale

    Not sure exactly, I know 3 of the ESC's are shot, the camera gimbal is bent, but the camera itself looks in good condition.

    Busted P4 for sale

    I have a Phantom 4 with only about 5-6 flights on it, had a failure with the FPV app, and it fell like a rock from about 200ft. I sent it off to be evaluated and it was going to cost more than I wanted to spend to fix it. The damages include, bent gimbal arm, (not sure if the camera works)...

    Need Advice to repair or not

    Thanks Jim, I dealt with DJI support when my P3pro had gps problems, it was under warranty and I had to ship it to them, they didn't charge me, but they didn't fix the problem the first time, and I had to re-ship it to them a second time, and they finally fixed it, but it was such a pain. Part...

    Need Advice to repair or not

    Recently used my P4 to take some pics and video of land my buddy was trying to sell. I was using FPVcamera app to do a waypoint/target mission, I had it set to hover when it was done with the mission. Well the mission ended and it was hovering at about 250ft like it was supposed to, while I was...

    P3P with fixable camera $500

    I Have a P3P that wrecked when "returning to home", clipped a tree and fell about 75ft onto gravel. Suffered a gimbal flex ribbon break and the plastic rotatory ring cracked. I have flown the bird several times and it flies perfectly with no issues except no camera. I ordered a new flex ribbon...

    ST. LOUIS & ST CHARLES MISSOURI

    I looked far and wide for an authorized phantom dealer around St. Louis, unfortunately there is none, the closest I found was like a 3-4hr drive away. You can either contact DJI and send it to them (If it's less than a year old it's still under warranty and they'll pay all the shipping), or...

    Prop dyeing question

    Well, I finally got my P4 finished, the props only took me 4 times to get the orange I wanted. Using apricot orange I tired entire bottle for 1hr they turned maroon, 1/3 a bottle for 20min and they were a weird orange with blotchy spots, 1/4 of a bottle for 2hrs they turned maroon again, finally...

    I've never had to replace my props, except for a crash where I cracked a couple of them, and I've never heard of anybody replacing them because of the threads going bad. How tight are you tightening them? Hand tight is more than enough, don't torque on it.

    Not sure where you are from, but in Europe and the U.S. your not supposed to fly above 150 meters. Not only could you get in serious trouble, but there is the chance you could interfere with a passenger aircraft.
