    Directional microphone installation: How? Share your opinion

    If you're confused please stop killing my post. If you are asking me I understand where it went wrong; I am asking for solutions people either tested or have seen making it possible to record audio on a phantom drone. I am not sure how you took that I were asking about the physics of waves...

    Directional microphone installation: How? Share your opinion

    I am quite familiar with the physics of sound trough air. This is in no way useful to me but if you aim toward educating potential readers, well then I salute your post. Education can never be destructive. But in this case madness... Someone is doing it over and over again, expecting different...

    Directional microphone installation: How? Share your opinion

    I am a producer and I have successfully recorded in cars, made interviews during concerts and so on. I claim it's quite possible to record through noise, not to mention once you have a noise baseline you can easily filter out the worst. Directional microphones could be equipped with a satellite...

    Directional microphone installation: How? Share your opinion

    Hello! Disclaimer: I am aware of the regulations and laws in a lot of countries regarding civilian rights to record both audio and video.

    Advanced Props, lifespan?

    I found a cool option: Three blade props, balanced and engineered specifically for Phantom 3 series available for purchase in various stores. Anyone tried them?

    Advanced Props, lifespan?

    I use a fine thread that I drag across the blade. If I get a read with high differences in friction, or if you lack the tech, simply drag a nail softly down the blades edges or suspected impacts (99% it's bug blood) and feel. If you feel dents or jagged surface on more than a few millimeters of...

    Follow Me Mode Voids your Phantom Warranty?!!! Wow, just Wow

    And from a goliat perspective I have actually turned my back on almost all companies that grew too big to value customer support. People whom doesn't know who Bill Gates are could probably tell you that they moved their customer support phone center overseas, now do you think that is a good or a...

    Follow Me Mode Voids your Phantom Warranty?!!! Wow, just Wow

    The price is high because the quality is high. And the price hasn't gone up in my business because if I tend to earn clients with a positive attitude towards customers then why would the costs go up? The small amount of fees I put in the replacement part I easily gain ten times over when the...

    Follow Me Mode Voids your Phantom Warranty?!!! Wow, just Wow

    P.S I have replaced parts that I easily could've charged the customer for but since it only took me less than half an hour, cost me nothing, which in turn got me a ton of recommendations and soon after that, you guessed it - more clients. That's my stance - as a business owner and customer...

    Follow Me Mode Voids your Phantom Warranty?!!! Wow, just Wow

    I am running a business that actually include warranty custom built computers, so from a business perspective I disagree about being blind, or "knowing nothing". What this user/employee mostly demonstrates is how some cases, or this particular one were handled, poorly from the beginning and...

    Simulator POV

    Doesn't make a lot of sense for it to be available on android and not ios when they specifically claim the app to be primarily coded for ios devices. The fact that my Samsung Tab Pro doesn't fit the RC but my iPad Air 2 does should argue for my case.
