Well I don't know whether to laugh or cry.  I had a horrific crash a couple of months ago, so I've been laying low.  Then last week I started to piece everything together and get back into it VERY SLOWLY and carefully.

Why no auto shut off when it crashes?

So I belong to the novice group of pilots that have gained much experience through many crashes.  I'm getting there though :)  I just enjoy running before I can walk.

Post Your Drone Crashes!

Well I had my first NASTY crash, I figured there should be a thread on drone crashes to help ease the pain.

I tried the Follow Me mode on my 3DR Iris+ and it didn't go so well.

Tarot 2D Gimbal won't level out

Hi all, my first post here, hopefully you can help me out with my brand new 3DR Iris, and Tarot 2D gimbal.

I power on the drone and gimbal, everything seems to work fine except the gimbal will not level the GoPro. It points it down at the same downwar
