Re: How to avoid planes

is indeed impressive, been around for a while. This is how I tell how high the clouds are by looking at when the planes get to the clouds and I then find the altitude on flightradar24 :)

Re: If ya going to fly dumb, ya gotta be tough...

I'd have to say considering the amount of issues with the Phantom you've been extremely lucky not to have had any issues at all, it's definately not the norm. Not the norm? I strongly disagree with u here daza. Although you do seem to say the opposite on the next thread about most r probably due to...

Re: Phantom is so very reliable!

very organised.. I just see how long i'm getting out of each battery. If it starts getting below 5 to 6mins compared to the at first 8-10mins then I tend to stop using them.

Re: Sunnyside Royal Hospital - Scotlands Oldest Lunatic Asyl

Are you allowed in these places then? Would be interesting to visit some local ones but after some researching they all appear to be secured and guarded to prevent access from the public.

Re: If ya going to fly dumb, ya gotta be tough...

LOL true guys so very true. I do pride myself having not ever crashed thru my own pilot error, it's always been due to a failure of some sort. However I do believe I need to fly harder, I don't mind if I break a prop really... or even an arm for that matter... I have spares for that :) Yours have o...

Re: Sunnyside Royal Hospital - Scotlands Oldest Lunatic Asyl

Great video and good find! well done.

Brilliant choice of music and the subject made me want to watch it more, makes your imagination run wild knowing it was a lunatic asylum.

Re: Phantom is so very reliable!

How do you log your number of flights? I must of had hundreds and not one problem with it. It has performed perfectly! I think the fly aways are 90% down to human error. The Phantom has a lot of features such as Course Lock, Home Lock, Alti mode, Manual mode etc etc. I think a lot of pilots don't fu...

Re: Video of the week(s) - part 12

It sort of goes a bit quiet anyway during the filming part with the current setup. I would hope everyone is subscribed to the topic via email so everyone should get notified as soon as it gets busy again (towards the end).

Re: Video of the week(s) - part 12

me too, I have some ideas but haven't even had time to fly the ideas yet.

I want to build up this great idea of video of the week (month?). The more people we get on board the more interesting it should become.

yup but im working most of it and the rain is forecast for most of it.

Any opposition to extending the time? I think just having a week and a bit probably stops a lot of people participating due to work/weather?

Re: Video of the week(s) - part 12

How is everyone doing?

Can we have a bit longer? lol, weather is crap here and I haven't got 1min of decent footage yet :(

Do you think it would be more popular if we did increase the time to take the video?
