Someone flew on the football field with a DJI Phantom, with a national flag attached to it. One of the footballers managed to catch the flag. Take a look at the situation. What do you think about it? Will it have an impact on our community?
I did not plan on testing "RTL" this flight however when I swamped my RC TX it worked flawlessly, now time switch up the video TX. A lopass filter was used however I assume it is the culprit. The wind picked up to 15-20 knots right before this flight and I called it a day. Looking forward to getting this back up in the air after the weather system moves…Continue
