eventually. given time eventually :-)

eventually I WOULD LOVE a quad where I don't even fly it. where it flies itself and I simply give it instructions.

load up google maps and tell it "fly here" by touching the map. increase altitude to 200ft. lower altitude to 100ft Fly from this point (touch map) to this point (touch map) at 10mph. at 30mph etc.. etc..

once I get it where I want it I tell it "stay"

or

Draw a line on the map "circling" my target and say follow this path repeat at altitude of 150ft and 5mph - execute. and then I ignore the copter and immerse my self in the FPV and get my footage :-)

then pull out the second TX attached to a PTZ and shoot to my hearts content.

I think the TECH is here for this already its just not integrated and or mature yet. I think once the djii gps getup etc.. gets cheaper and or more common your going to see someone make some android or windows software to "uplink" with the onboard unit and give it instructions.

it will be point and click.
Have you seen the diydrones stuff and APM 2.0? Not quite what you're describing but a whole lot cheaper than that crap DJI stuff, a large community, and open source software and hardware.

I believe it is diydrones.com, it is much less plug and play than dji, but a hell of a lot cheaper and due to being open source has a lot of features that you pay extra for elsewhere. Also, if you're willing to learn/already know C very easy for you to add to if you have good ideas. When I can afford to start building my own multi it will be what I use, and I hope to become a contributor then.

Late response, but that should probably read 'smaller'. The vibration frequency is also so high on the LB, X100 etc that jello almost disappears, or is at least more acceptable. Just as well as those tiny props are probably too tiny to bother balancing. Although I might try when I get back from holiday.

sigh... not again....

all other parameters equal the smaller the mass the LARGER the vibrations. this can be seen by comparing accelerometer graphs in the multiwii projects. almost directly proportional to size. it takes more energy to move more mass so a given prop and motor imbalance will have less effect. and i think anybody who has tried videos knows the difference between big quad and little one.

I hope this is not a serious question (unfrotunately there are times when one cant no longer be sure about this on here nowadays ... ...)

Anyway, I am sure if you find a 200lb guy who caries a smartcar around, you will also find a LBV2 that carries a GoPro

No just bored and needed to entertain myself E2. I do understand unfortunately that when reading that we've reached the point in this forum where it has to try and be determined whether its serious or not.

Maybe with the props flipped upside down and the right camber it could work.

The motors on the X4 looks BIG. I was hoping the X4 to be the size of V929 or mQX, but it's the size of the V939 or Ladybird.

Na, smaller then a LB. - half of it's size...

Just have a look at the USB connector. Held close to it, you might be able to imagine the true size of the X4
