    First Flights with a Windsurfer-WOW!

    It was a beautiful day here in Surrey, England on a Friday - 10c, zero measurable wind and a cloudless blue sky. So, I decided it was worth a go at a couple of flights with the Windsurfer. Its one of the really cheap foldable units from Gearbest which was a couple of quid. I had to file out the...

    testing max range in city

    Hello All, I have purchased a used Phantom 3 Advanced and I was wondering if it is normal to get only 400-600m max distance inside city/park. should I be testing it in a open space to see the real max distance?

    Range versus speed

    I am having a great time with my 4. Sport mode is very fast , my go app has recorded once 85 mph with a wind, not kidding. I just wanted to know if anyone had done a comparison between speed and distance , at what speed do you get the longest distance. I normally fly about 17-19 miles per hour...

    Remote Control signals - what will they pass through?

    I have a P4, all going very well and I am finding this a lot easier to fly than my old P2 Vision +. The big bonus are the intelligent flight modes and also the range - I was lucky to get more than 275 metres with the old system unless I went to the top of a mountain. Now, I have had a flight off...

    P3S - can go far, can't go high

    I've been flying the P3S for a few months and I keep having the same issue where the drone would go out far but can't go very high. For example, I can go 200m forward but I lose signal at about 30m high. I don't stand right underneath the drone, I make sure it's in front of me and there are no...

    Disagreement with FAA Re: Airport Distance

    The FAA's B4UFly App shows that I live in a no-fly zone within a five-mile radius of BWI; about 4.5 miles. This measurement is incorrect. Using the FAA's own published coordinates for BWI from AirNav: KBWI - Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and my own precision...

    P3P Max distance - RC vs. Healthy Drones

    In my local terrain (125+ foot tall Spruce / Hemlock forest) I am getting roughly 1500 - 1700 feet of range before the RC starts to complain of poor video signal and, on occasion, poor RC signal. The screen video does break up, indicating to me that signal is indeed degrading. This is on a...
