I have my final assessment interview booked in with CASA this coming Thursday. I'd love to chat with anyone that has gone through this process... it seems pretty daunting.
I've had my RePL license for about 6 months now and flown many jobs for clients and quite confident in my general knowledge...
I purchased the Phantom 4 Pro on 10 November 2017. The very first time I calibrated the aircraft I noticed that the gimbal was trying to move in the opposite direction and making a strange sound. I thought this was normal because I had only just unpacked it from the box. I have only flown the...
I am shortly about to unpackage and initialize my brand new P3S, also I am in Australia (CE).
But before I go ahead and do so, I would love to hear any advice or tips that may save my butt for down the track.
I do plan on modding my P3S, Magic Power?Icarus? DBS antenna and then boosters...
I just passed a thousand followers on Instagram and put together this edit to celebrate.
It is my fourth one so far. Edited on FCPX, shot on P4 @ 4K30fps.

We live in a tumultuous time. As Isis has released a number of videos using drones for their attacks, the Australia Government has called for a possible ban on sale of drones. There are many concerns out there for individual safety. Many of those attacks include ordinary items such as trucks...
Took up my P4 last night at sunset... one of the best decisions I've made, to say the least.

So today I got to fly my drone at the Sydney Opera House. I had done all my research but apparently it is restricted airspace according to the on-site security. I proceeded to tell him that it is restricted airspace at the tip of the Opera House all the way up the harbour and this is "Special...
Just took my new P4 for its first flight yesterday. I previously owned a P3 Standard for a while, and it was a great decision to make the upgrade to start moving into more professional stuff. This video is more of a relaxation clip than a short film. For some of those, check out my...
We live in Brisbane, Australia and have a brand new Phantom 3 4K that we are so keen to fly BUT get constant errors when attempting the first automatic take off. I'll be scouring this site for help!!
If anyone knows someone/somewhere we can get a few lessons from, let me know...
Appreciate all the great info on this forum. Just got my P3S last week and loving it.
Besides a small mishap where my compass went haywire for a mysterious reason and I crashed, all good.
I'm still having trouble beating my nerves stopping me going higher than 10 metres altitude...
Hi, just getting started with a p4 in Australia.
Hobby for the moment but interested in conservation management work.
Also wanting to take on the (currently daunting) CASA licence. Happy for advice if any other Aussies been through this process.
Had some sad moments today when an RTH was required after signal was lost and the headland and the soaring gum trees conspired to be way higher than the 30m height that it was set at for RTH.
However, it all ended super well because of some good searching, some deduction of location from the...
I have uploaded some really nice Drone footage of the Australian Bush, taken with the Phantom 4 Pro let me know what you think.
The video was edited in Final Cut Pro X and i used Color Finale Pro to grade the footage
Just starting droning. Huge amount of fun. So far the only real issue has been getting settings right in the video editing software. This shot in Canberra's arboretum....editing still a bit rough and a few sudden turns on the drone.
