3.06 improved my "arcing" I think.

    My first test of 3.06 turned out great!
    It seems that it flies slower in GPS mode but yet more precisely controlled.
    What do you think? http://youtu.be/YHXaKH1zo6Q

    If you were arcing , not going straight it may have been your magnetic declination in your area.
    They addressed that issue in 3.06

    Yes I did have J-hook issus before. But in this case I am trying to film nice arcs to get a spot from different angles. This was near impossible to do smooth before. 3.04 did not like komplex stick inputs. This is better with 3.06. Not sure if the J-hook issue is resolved?

    Thanks! Lots and lots of training is starting to pay of. :)
    Actually I was just contacted by a dude who has professionally flown a monster octacopter for over a year and he was jelous of how well my P2V+ performs.

    After 100+ flights with my P2V+ I feel rather comfortable and I trust my bird. Still almost every flight has it´s own "close-calls" but it keeps me from getting sloppy with pre-flight preps and all other things to be careful with.

    What an amazing place to take some footage, looks a tad dangerous for the kids

    Such a great video. So smooth and your arcing was superb.
    What a strange but beautiful place.
