Agree completely.

Also, for newer users, after leaning to fly with the help of GPS mode, there is nothing wrong with flying around in ATTI mode, and just using GPS mode for holding the aircraft in one position.

The most up to date Phantom 1 is known as V1.1.1 , not sure how they came up with that but that is what it is, as long as you are buying new that is what you will be getting, Two things to look for to make sure you are getting most up to date model besides the model # , Props will be self tightening and there are two antenna leads

I also think on the radio of the 1.1.1 had the lever for gimbal tilt control on the back side.

I have the V1.1.1

And am running Dinogy 2800 packs and DJI 9450 props...Had to dremel notched in the battery door to allow for the battery pack leads to connect outside the quad but with the 9450 vs 8443 props...IT SCREAMS.....I fly a Sony HDR Action Cam...Here is a shot from 2000' by naked eye....no FPV! The other is 400' above my home...

BTW...I always stay in GPS mode and never have any fly aways! And I am at the Max limited altitude (2000') allowed in the 1.1.1.

Cheers....Greg aka Eagle Eyes

Chasing Icebergs with Phantom and Q500

I flew my Phantom V1.2 , I know old school, and my Yuneec Q500 over the ocean in Newfoundland scouting out icebergs. Crazy wind but gimbals worked fairly well. Gopro video quality better on Phantom but smooth video and gimbal tracked nicer on Q500. Both have their strengths. Pretty great aerial video though.

Chasing Ice! (4 min 33 sec)

That's great video!

I am just learning to use my Sony Action cam and one thing I DO NOT LIKE is when I am in Interval photo mode it limits the resolution to 2MB..WTH? My video looks better than a GP Black 3+ IMO as I have Carl Zeiss optics and superior Image Stabilizition.


Back to your vid.......STELLAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
