If you care about our hobby at all, we need to put pressure on the FAA about drone flyers like Casey Neistat.
Yeah, Casey does a lot of stuff at the border of legality and that's what made him famous. Like this video where he was snowboarding, being pulled by an SUV... During a ban of private traffic in NYC due to a snow blizzard => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRv7G7WpOoU
OG, you are confusing the M600 hexacopter's ability to fly without a prop, for the Phantom. The Phantom will drop like a stone. A rapidly spinning stone.
Show me a video of a video of a Phantom 4 landing safely with a missing prop, and I will reward you handsomely. As for the sense and avoid, I can't say I have tried it so I will withhold judgement. And pretty much any quad can fly with no GPS, as long as you are a good pilot.
Oh, and Phantom 4 is definitely not exempt from any rules. It is actually a pretty standard quad, the only real "special" thing it has is that sense and avoid which I imagine is very narrowly useful. I'm assuming it's well put together and has readily available spare parts and mods, so that's a plus.
Never heard of this guy before and really don't care what he's up to. You have given him even more publicity which I'm sure he appreciates.
@Darrell 3,104,245 people would say otherwise. The point is, his videos are huge influencers to the same uneducated "Best Buy" type flyers that are already ruining the hobby as we speak.
Like a pimple he will go away faster if you leave him alone. Make your complaint to the appropriate authorities and move on. You can't legislate morality.
OG, you are making things up as you go.The A3 cannot make a quadcopter fly with a missing problem. The problem is very severe on a quadcopter, much moreso than hex or octo.
Yes, it has been done in "laboratory" settings, but I've never seen a commercially available system do it. Some of the problems are really basic, and hard to solve. ie: The yaw rate that will result will saturate the Z-axis gyro that we use, which will make the AHRS blow up.
@OG LOL you obviously do not know who Rob is either. I hope you sell better than you speak and spell....
No DJI quadcopter (or any other RTF commercial unit that I know of) can fly or land on 3 props.
It may be in the A3 and other controllers but that is only for hex and octo's with that FC.
If this was a feature on the P4 or any other (Inspire, etc.), then you would see demos of same all over the interweb. But it isn't so you don't.
Let's put that one to bed - although it has little to do with idiotic flying anyway.
