    Dark Blob on Camera Image

    I've got this dark blob on my images and videos. It's not so noticeable on stills, but when you pan on a light background it really shows up. I first noticed it after a crash. I had to replace my props, but other than that it came back fine. Of course when I first noticed it I thought it was...

    Transport Canada's Updated UAV Rules

    Did anybody lose a Phantom in Grimsby, Ontario?

    On July 19 somebody saw a "drone" land on the roof of a store in town. They called 911 and the P3 was retrieved. It would have to be a fly-away of some sort. I don't know if any efforts were made to find the owner, so I just thought I'd post it here.

    P3P just delivered - W323 not A

    Open it up! Get out there and have fun with it. Often you don't hear about all the good news. I ordered mine as soon as they came out. I've logged over 45 hours and over 400km.

    How many kilometres/miles have you flown your phantom.

    I've got 44 hrs 58 min. 1,310,907 ft (399.667km) in 224 flights. I ordered my P3A 2 days after launch and and my first flight was on May 22. It's been a good summer. :D

    Buy from DJI, ship to Canada

    That was my experience. I got my P3A back in the spring and there were absolutely no extra charges. Just the friggin' exchange rate.

    "Map Loading" on all flights since August 3

    I was wrong about the date Oso. It seemed to start Sept 11. It must be related to the iOS 9 issue. Thanks. Flight Records showing Map Loading by JdotB posted Oct 12, 2015 at 8:58 AM

    "Map Loading" on all flights since August 3

    In my Flight Records, it always used to say the location of the flight, but since August 3 all my flights continue to display Map Loading. Not sure if that's related to an update. Any ideas?

    YouTube is a pain...

    When I post on YouTube I sometimes get the copyright warning, but it basically says that the artist is ok with it and I can't monetize it. I just leave it posted and agree to the terms. Maybe I'm missing something, or there are varying degrees of copyright infringement.

    Silver props harder to install than black

    Mine too. It's not the prop. It's the thread. Silver one on the front leg.
