Thanks Segroegt,

Yes, perhaps its our "left-wing liberals" at their best in Berkeley - the heart of California's let-alone, we're all beautiful people society. Several years ago a colleague called their police informing them a squatter was camping out in their backyard garden and eating their food... the dispatcher's response - "Ah, leave them alone if they're not hurting anything." At any rate this is a nice open park in the San Francisco Bay where folks fly small to huge kites (more threatening then our puny toys) and dogs off leash are free to chase our "drones."

OTOH, Yesterday I was listening to the FliteTest podcast regarding the latest FAA push to restrict model aircraft flight. At one point the discussion turned to filming Niagara Falls - not a problem if you take off and land on the Canadian side!

You have the possibility to choose between RP-SMA or SMA Black Pearl monitor, during the checkout process. So you purchase the BP depending on the type of antenna.
(anyway, there is Converter in case of wrong selection)

How does the Phantom/iOSD respond if you take off from a cliff then fly over that cliff and descend to a lower altitude from which you took off?

You get negative altitude values.

If you failsafe it still rises to 20m above your recorded home point.

Dog attacks flying drone (3 min 15 sec)


it can fly for 90min empty or 60min full FPV+gimbal
but I still like Phantom 2 more, it has best video,
and that is what counts in the end of a day.

Can you have SMA on your VTX (I believe that's what Fatshark/IRC uses) and a Black Pearl with RP-SMA, as long as you use SMA-antenna on the VTX and RP-SMA-antenna(s) on the Black Pearl?

It looks like MAP (minimum advertised price) for P2+H33D is $959 in the USA.

Does anyone know what the price the dealers are paying for it? Anyone willing to disclose?

That actually happens to Holger when he was flying a Mikrokopter banner under a copter and it flew up into the motors
