Buy a phantom. And then don't talk to me anymore

Joking of course, but after seeing a phantom 2 vision at work, I would probably not bother making one myself for photography duties. The thing just works. In good hands of course

Have you attempted FPV using the screen on the ST10 ground station?

I tried it very briefly, it's a 5.8 ghz wifi streaming HD so there is considerable latency, especially while recording; it's also not very long range. So not really good for FPV.

My Vector (and APM) GPS hold never usually worked for me either, it was frustrating...



I was testing the water flying behind some trees today, but that particular video seems to be corrupt...

I can tilt it down to look at the ground with a dial on the controller, I just keep forgetting to mess around with it



This is my first RTF, I built the only other two I've owned myself. The 15-20 minute flight time blasts the crap out of 5 minute flight times on my self built quad...
Agreed. I actually have the Dom HD's fed by the receiver for the DJI vTx and use the gopro feed. It is perfect. I use it for chasing planes around, and have full OSD and gimbal control with the same 20 minute flight times.
Have been out to 1.1 KM with this config.

Apple corporation profit for last 3 months: 72 Billion $

Apple corp net profits for last 3 months: 18 billion $

Apple corp cash reserve: 178 Billion $

Province of Quebec spendings in 2015: 65 Billion $ + 8 billion $ for interest on debt

province of Quebec total debt to date: 272 billion $


Apple makes almost more net income (Can $ equivalent) in a year than all Quebec Spendings, Apple could almost pay cash all of Quebec's debt.

All this while paying chinese employees nuts to work as much as 10 or 12 hours a day. I think I'll buy another brand of phone next time, they have enough already.

Yea ! If at least thoses phones were built in North America. Clearly they could pay the difference in wages and not have the phones sell for much more. It's a gimmick anyway since most people pay their phones full price, financed on their cell phone bill for two or three years. Have you seen how their contractor in China, Foxxcon, treats its employees ? Shamefull.

They had a report on the CBC about Chinese manufacturing for apple. This includes the Tin mines in Indonesia. Fact of the matter is that we as consumers drive these sort of labour behaviours. What do you think is in all those circuit boards? Where do you think alot of the raw materials come from.

Eventually the Chinese people will improve their standard of living, and the next country like Bangladesh will take its place.

if we can't enhance, diversify and educate our population and economy, then we deserve to lose our buying power, and deserve to have a reduced standard of living. We could try to be like Germany and Japan with a better educated, better skilled population. And we don't, we rely a little too much on resources like oil, which leaves us vulnerable to the market for resources.
