    Phantom 2 V3 Vision + steady single yellow blinking light.

    Just got this used P2 V3 V+ that may have been in some kind of crash I don't have much background on it, it has some small visible damage but the gimbal is intact and for the most part it looks like it may have been a minor crash, it came with the updated controller that charges, I've done IMU...

    WLTOYS V686 Not able to fly, just slumps forward

    e Well you were right, now if only it was that simple with this Phantom 2 I'm tinking with, I think it has a bad motor or the ESC board might be shot, I got a single slow blinking light on, anyone know for sure?

    Phantom 3 Stnd vs Mini Mavic

    That might explain the Phantom 3 Pro I recently saw going for $300, only thing is they are selling on a site that if the buyer is not satisfied they don't get paid, so why bother with a ripoff?

    Phantom 3 Stnd vs Mini Mavic

    One other advantage that comes to mind, I would think the Phantom can handle payloads if necessary.

    WLTOYS V686 Not able to fly, just slumps forward

    Looks like I screwed up, the props were on backwards but only because I put the top shell on backwards, I was wondering why the battery cover wouldn't close right, I was certain I had put the shell on correctly, so I corrected it put the props on correctly and it flies. Glad it wasn't the...

    Phantom 3 Stnd vs Mini Mavic

    I'd stick with the Phantom not just because you have the gear for it, smaller for me doesn't necessarily mean better, more chance of losing it in the sky and breaking it it since it's foldable, other reasons might be that the 2 birds are very different as are gimbles, that's my 2 cents worth on...

    DJI Phantom 2 Vision + Camera on Phantom Standard 3?

    Anyone with Phantom experience know if it's possible to have a Phantom 2 Vision + Camera on a Standard 3? I'm asking because the Vision +cameras cost less for a replacement for a Phantom, but my guess is it can't be done because the gimbles are different? Also ever heard of a Phantom 3 Standard...

    WLTOYS V686 Not able to fly, just slumps forward

    Hi sorry for the late reply, props are all color matched so no, I wish that were the case easy fix, and as for moto spinning faster not from what I can observe any way to check for sure? Other than that I'm thinking the gyros went bad even though calibration seems to work, so now I'm about to...

    FAA Sued In Federal Court Over Drone Registration Rules

    Well I read rumors on the AMA forum that they might bring suit, but so far no action, and yes very sad that an individual had to be the catalyst when there are such vast numbers of hobbyists in the U.S. it seems many are just going to roll over, I don't have a problem with the $5 fee, my...

    Is there any idea how many are planning on complying with the new Registration Rule?

    I know the AMA told it's what is it like 20k members to hold off on registration, but is there any idea how many out there will comply? I myself don't own anything that's 250g or more, yet lol.

    help! my WLTOYS V686g shuts down just as it lifts off!

    Any chance it's the motors all going at once? I just bought one on Black Friday from G.B. for $52, it's a nice FPV starter, I don't get to fly much except indoors due to the rain, I bought 2 extra motors just in case ;)

    Review of : Syma X8G Headless 2.4Ghz 4CH RC Quadcopter with 5MP HD Camera

    When we first laid eyes on the X8G, our first thought was the design reminded us of a DJI Phantom. It seems like Syma is going in that direction as far as arial photography is concerned. Unlike the previous Syma series X5 and X8 with 720p cameras and non exchangeable mounts. This is a first of...

    Review of Hubsan FPV X4 Plus H107D+ w/ 720P Camera RTF & Altitude Hold

    First off, this is a newer updated model of the Hubsan X4 107D FPV like the X4 107C+ minus FPV pretty much similar, the instructions are well written in English and easy to understand. The first thing you notice is that the design is different, there are no more break off legs that you have to...
