Express Your Opinion About these Morons!!

So these guys from a popular youtube channel known as "tested" decided to review their phantom 2's waypoint navigation features in the middle of a big city. Must I explain why these guys are being idiots and trying really hard to further ruin our hobby? Stop in and leave a comment about their stupidity and help save this hobby!

Tested Fun Flight: Waypoint Navigation with Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter (15 min 32 sec)

Hey E, sorry I reposted below but just look at the lack of concern by the FPV community. These guys will walk but go to your park and get a prozac mom calling cops on the drone flying and you can bet if they know about FPV RC new regs your not going to be as protected as these million dollar Discovery channel debunkers will be. To think they threw chickens in plane engines even in an episode yet don't know about FAA announcement? fat chance they will be the ban poster children but only to encourage 90 iq fliers to help speed the fear campaign against RC.
LOL! It looks real bad for FPV when folks are afraid to speak up. Sad state down there.

We got a few FPV legends that popped in on the comments. Vitamin J, BMSWEB, and yourself. Just trying to do my part in hunting down Phantom morons.

Do Phantom users really point their antennas at their quads? Polarization is so basic i never even pay attention to it.

I'm a Phantom user and polarization has nothing to do with pointing the antenna at your quad. The 5.8GHz control antenna is not polarized. The 2.4GHz Wifi is.

I've also been flying r/c for 30 years, so don't lump us all together.
