And I want to see a two minute hover with the TX in the video frame. (sorry, but couldn't resist that). Seriously, two minute hover, TX in the video.

A serie of very pleasant flights today... with and without wind... easy to adjust with the X2 and X3 channels trimmed to the knobs of my Hitec radio...
Very pleasant RTH (I connected the RTH to a switch) = very smooth landings..
And a long flight (17 mn) with 2 lipos connected in parallel...
I'm just waiting for my power unit now (Robert, I don't know if I was on the list... no mail) to manage RTH on low power...

Yes I did see the video. Impressive. The above is an "almost" inside joke with Tony. Several people here will catch it including Tom.

Xaircraft X650 quad STEADY enough for AP photography/Video etc.. VID #2 w/2min hands off hovering (3 min 47 sec)

This thing is sooo rock solid I did not need to wait for a camera man. I just activated GPS+HH and set the TX down and started filming. Here is a 4 min vid hands of hovering w/GPS and HH activated->

Tony and I are friends. We were both test pilots for XAircraft. I trust his opinion and I really want to see him fly the DJI. If he says it flys great, I believe him. He is one of the independent people that I wanted to see fly this. The post was directed at him and he got the joke. My post was not a put down of DJI or even a comparison. It was to get Tony to make the same kind of video.

Very cool Tony. Thanks for granting my wish. We'll talk on Skype some time. In that 4 minutes any photographer should have been able to get the photo they were after. Did you activate the auto-land at the end?

I am your personal genie LOL. No I was actually trying to show how easy it was to land with 1 hand holding the TX and moving the stick at the same time filming with the other hand but with sooo much going on I didnt realize the throttle was not in the frame LOL.
