That is what I figure as well. I'm sure one could tweak the steady mode down so it would be ok in high winds but not worth it. I am only flying in high winds because it's new and I want to fly and tweak it. I only plan on using it on calm days.

Thanks, seadog. Found even more on youtube and learned something again.
I didn't bother too much about that so far as my APC props always work well out of the box. But I will definitely check all of them from now on.

Glad to have helped. We all helping each other here is what's going to make this more fun and get our quads to work better. I just did 8 props and 5 needed just a little tape. Will be interesting to see the difference.

Ok, got my Quad yesterday and I have not gotten any further than unboxing it but had to do what I love, photograph it.

More to come probably tomorrow.

How to you know its CS5? (Which it is) Having a little trouble keeping the foregound white without losing the plexiglass reflection. Its white on a calibrated monitor but turns to a light grey on the internet, will have to work on that a little.

Well.....depends on what you mean by Professional. Quality wise yes but making enough to live off it would be a no.

I'm hoping there might be some interest from some people (Tom and Paul) to exchange photos for products. If end users are interested in photos of their quads I would have to work out a reasonable amount.

When looking at your photo I knew it wasn't a point and shoot photographer. LOL Your photo holds the info of what of what program processed it CS5 on a Mac. Usually too the camera info settings etc. will be in the file but the way you processed it stripped it. I had a studio for awhile. Making a living at it is not easy. Retired now and just shoot for myself with an occasional paid job depending on my mood. Did you try shadow highlights to adjust? That is a tough shot to get right.

Thats cheating checking the MetaData!! I shoot in Raw and adjusted Shadow, black and even did a curves adjustment. I'm gonna have to paint white or dodge the foreground to get it right. Can't afford to get a product table and get it right in camera in the first place.
