Making good use of my long range antennas.
You were outrunning the cars lol. How far was this?
It was just over 15,000ft (2.9 miles). Had to override it wanting to RTH. Still landed with over 30% battery as I was flying into the wind on the way out to give a safety margin for the return. Was flying at full speed with the wind behind me - hence overtaking the cars!
Here is some flying that I was lucky to do this weekend!
That is awesome! How much do they charge?
Well did I fly today? Yes I did. And did I crash today? Yes I did!
Bonus points if you can name the TV series the soundtrack comes from.
Wow that is amazing - like a 70s Arcade Game but in real life!
My wife got me a cheap little Quadrone Cell for Christmas and now I'm hooked. I lost it in a tree today and now have a few more Syma drones in order.
That's how I got into it - got one last Christmas and have been hooked since.
How old are you? I'm 37. I open a toy meant for 10 year old and now I'm pacing the house until my new drones made for 14 year olds arrive on Wednesday. I feel very juvenile.
I ordered a Syma X11, X12, and X5C-1.
What were you flying? I have just started with this whole drone thing.
The long range one was done with a Phantom 3 Advanced with some long range antennas from fpvlr.com on the transmitter. By the way I'm 10 years older than you!
Ordered an FPV camera for my Syma X5SC, so until it arrives I've been practicing indoor flight. Still got a lot of practice to do before I become truly competent!
I think I could best be described as a novice pilot at this point, but heck, I've been enjoying it! As a side note, my Syma can take a heck of a beating and keep going... quite impressed with that!
Love this x8c on it's 8th successful flight:
