was wondering why he didnt take the flitetest crew with him,

I guess he's had this footage for a little while then as I thought he was staying in the US for a year.

Phone is for 1080p HDR video, GPS logging and to test how well it survives. Plus, then I'd have a phone that has been in space :-P

Is that the one from foxtech? If so it's got some great reviews.
This might be a basic question but my Sony 600 on my screen looks best on 4.3 ratio.....but doesn't use the whole screen 16.9 ......when I widen it the image is no we're near as accurate to real life.....anything I can do to use the while screen but a better ratio??

Yup. Looks like a walkera UFO series quad. I got the UFO 4 or 5 a few years ago just after quad powered came on the scene (predecessor to hoverfly) so were talking at least 3 years. No weight carrying capacity. 750mah 2s lipo and 2.4ghz control through a walkera brand Tx. It could take the modern tiny VTx's and cameras available today. But when I had one my only option for tiny size was a little wireless 900mhz security camera with built in Tx run off a 9v battery. Far too much for that little quad to take. I could get about 60 seconds flight time before the lipo voltage dipped so much that WOT wasn't enough to get airborne. I guess in that sense I'm the original multirotor FPV'r lol.

The father in law picked it up st a car boot to practice with.
I love the old gyro.
I have had this flying via an umbilical power cord attached to a 12v motorbike battery.
It's very.twitchy and no heading hold.
