That kind of video is a bit irresponsible seeing as this is the type of high level flying that's going to get the hobby severely restricted here in the states. It's cool and all but really childish in light of forthcoming regulations.

I completely disagree with that comment.

Other than that, it was a very nice vid with good music.

I agree 200%, this was actually my first thought as a professional pilot.
Otherwise very nice indeed, gonna get some for my kids, but no high level flights permitted

So people from anywhere in the world cannot post high-flying videos because of ridiculous US regulations?

comments have NOTHING to do with regulations, they have to do with common sense and responsibility.
The day a commercial aircraft flying a member of your family gets shot down by such a irresponsible flight you may then start to understand what we are speaking about... but it will be too late for many innocent people.

Posting such videos "from all over the planet" may give stupid ideas to the weak minded, the same way showing too much violence on TV and video games can lead to what happened lately causing the loss of many innocent very young lives.
Rest in peace my little fellows... on a side note, what just happened in Newtown CT is absolutely sick, what has happened to us human beings !?

Merry Christmas to all of you and your families, and happy (responsible) flights
Bob

High flying

Bet many are laughing at you "too high " blokes!!!

If I have your attention, (span = nano secs I bet)

The camera view angle makes the height look Stratospheric. If it were a "Fish Eye" you would think you were in space!

Believe less of what you think you see, use of grey matter might help as well.

I'm looking for help with modding this sucker. I replaced the planes antenna with a cloverleaf fat sharck circular polarized antenna and that worked, I then got a coax cable with an sma already attached and soldered it to the transmitter box where the directional antennae was attached and placed a matching fat shark antennae, it didn't work. I found that I had shorted the ground to the antennae wire with solder, so I removed it and it was much improved. I just took it out and it got fuzzy pretty quick, I then removed the fats hard antennae in mid flight and it got clear!?!?!? So, i now have decent range and its not directional, but only with the exposed sma connector, the antennae makes it worse! Any ideas on what I could be doing wrong?

New development! It is getting interference from my 2.4ghz transmitter antenna. I can move the controller transmitter antenna closer to the video antenna on the controller and interference shows up. How are the coax shields supposed to be shielded? Could they not be grounded together or something?
