    Looking For A New Drone

    I sold my Phantom 4 about a year ago. I want to get back into it. I will be traveling a little bit. I want good camera results and I definitely want to have maximum obstruction avoidance. I have been looking at the DJI Minute 3 Pro and the DJI Air 2S. Compare and contrast. All insights will...

    What Propellers to Buy for my DJI P4?

    I still consider myself a novice. I want to buy new propellers for my P4. The listings on Amazon I find confusing and I really don't want to buy the wrong thing.

    DJI P4 Crash on a Litchi Mission

    I was flying a Litchi mission today that I have run 8 times before. The most recent (before today) was November 14, 2020. Today I ran it and it crashed into a tree. I do not understand. I do admit that I had it flying just over the tree-tops. I live in Pennsylvania and I can't imagine the...

    Battery Warning on Phantom 4

    My controller display starts beeping at me with more than 7 minutes of battery left according to the display. What can I do to make it more reasonable, say 3 minutes? Thanks in advance.

    Parts for a Husband H501S

    I had an unfortunate accident last fall with my H501s. Crashed it high in a pine tree. Was never able to find it. I now have parts. I was wondering if any of you fine drone enthusiasts had advice for selling the stuff. I bought a new DJI Phantom 4 Pro so I don't need the parts for the...

    How to Change email

    How do I change the email that I log in with? I suppose I could cancel and resubscribe using a new email? But I am hoping that there is a better way.

    How To Get Access to the Material That is Applicable to One's Model?

    I got a new Phantom 4. I downloaded the DJI GO 4 app to my mobile device. I hooked the device to the aircraft to download the latest firmware. No problem. Then I tried to fly it. I had been looking at videos on uTube and the DJI site. But looking at my manual, there are things that don't...

    Display for a Phantom 4

    I assume that the device must be compatible with iOS or Android? The display can't be an Amazon Fire device?

    Display for a Phantom 4

    I got my Phantom 4 in the mail. Now I need a display mechanism. I can use my iPhone until I get something else. My iPad (4th Gen) is too big. Any recommendations for a small tablet that does the job at a reasonable price? Say under $100?

    Lost in Translation

    I bought a DJI Phantom 4. I purchased it on 11/13 and being used to Amazon expected to see a "Shipped Date" a day or so later. I did not get such a notice so I sent them an email. In their response, in part the email says that they were going to ship it "...on or before (the day I bought...

    Panic and a Senior Moment- Next Drone?

    Anyone know about the DJI Mavic Pro Drone with 4K HD Camera (DJI Refurbished)? Looks to be comparably priced as the Phantom 4. Is there a web site where I can compare them? Amazon and eBay do not provide that capability.

    Panic and a Senior Moment- Next Drone?

    So, the unit does NOT need smart batteries, right? What kind of dumb batteries does it use? Thanks again

    Panic and a Senior Moment- Next Drone?

    This does look like a great drone. I saw it on Best Buy. Question though, why is this battery so expensive.

    Retrieving An Aircraft From A Tree

    Here's another method that worked for me in a similar situation. I use a spinning fishing rod and reel. And cast the sinker in a big arc over the branch of interest. Of course it takes more than one cast but once I have the monofilament over the branch I can attach a heavy cord. Glad to hear...

    Is My Wife a Good Sport or What

    I got pretty good at flying my Husban x4 in my basement last winter. I could fly it through hoops, land on tables, and go around a lot of obstacles. I decided I could take it upstairs and impress my wife with my flying ability (I'm in my mid-60's). So, she is sitting at her desk in our...
