"I think that a guy with a Phantom is pushing limits with these cops.
For no obvious reason.
There is no strict law today, but because of these events there will be simple all-out ban
just like with the national parks."
"one thing that I noticed.
You set FPV camera on a gimbal ?
That is not good since gimball will correct itself and you would not be able to 'feel' the octa.
Would you mind to share your motors/props/weight/flight time etc."
it's not actual test since you removed one arm and motor, plus you put one battery to be counter weight on opposite motor.
Real test is to do it:
-in midflight (using remote switch for pwm signal)
-with full load
I tried to upgrade from 2.4x to 2.5 using MP, board is 1280 and after eeprom 116->117 message there was message about being unable to update. Board can not boot, or connect over MP again.
I'll try to upgrade it over arduino."
