I have toyed with the idea of building an Arduino based gps data logger, but I have just not gotten around to it.
Try Flytrex
Nice find P...seems perfect for 50 bucks!

Are you using one?

Re: 1153ft high flight over tv mast

Tony.. You have any 3D GPS plots to share ? You have came a long way from your beginning altitude flights. No more chasing down lost drones in heavy weeds with kids as your dependable spotters ??? Hi garrock, Unfortunately, no GPS track....it's the one thing I really miss from my old drone v1 (with...

Was that on a factory stock DJI or is it modified to get that kind of height?

Sent from my Galaxy Note 2.
Just a stock F450 with a goodluckbuy brushless gimbal and a Hero3. I only had 2200mAh 3s batteries so flight time was an issue!

Re: 1153ft high flight over tv mast

My second attempt to top the 855ft high Wenvoe tv mast near Cardiff. My first attempt in May ended 96ft short, so I thought I'd have another go. This time I'd give it full throttle for 2 minutes and hope for the best. I only had a couple of 2200mAh lipo's left, so after 2 min at full throttle, I ha...

Not much chance to get anything new, so I'd like to enter my channel trailer.

I think it's the sound to begin with, but when one gets hit by a prop the smell sends them into attack mode! In both vids you can hear a crack as a bee gets mashed!

Thanks again guys :)

Jayson, the wind was quite calm on that day, but it got a bit bumpy up in the clouds!

FPV range issues

Guys, I have a severe range issue with my RC305/TS351 fpv combo. I have the vtx mounted on the base of my F450 quad with a clover leaf antenna, and runs from a 500mAh 3s lipo. I have a 7" monitor mounted on my tx. The RC305 (skew planar antenna) and the monitor run off the same 1000mAh 3s lipo. If I...

570ft over the South Wales Coast!

Cracking flight over Southerndown Beach on the rugged South Wales coastline. There was very little breeze, it's just a shame it was overcast. The on board altimeter told me those clouds I almost got lost in were at 570ft!! http://youtu.be/wsMatepeQyI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" o...

2013 Bonfire night fireworks

I tried to film our local annual fireworks display last year with my drone v1, which ended with a broken central cross, and no video....I hate the wind :( This year was more windy (20mph gusting to 30mph), but the DJI F450 can handle that better so I gave it another go. The only safe place I could f...

Re: Video Of the Week #15 - Animal Crossing

Hi guys, I haven't had much chance to get out with the drone due to work and family commitments, but I've still kept an eye on the forum. I think I have an older vid that fits this VAW pretty well. My drone v1 attracted the attention of a swarm of bees, and when one of them got creamed buy the prop ...
