  • Issue#243341: Quadcopter - Idiot attempts world record at 3.4 Km/11.000 feet with Phantom Drone

    In an attempt to break the world 'how high can you fly a consumer drone' record, an anonymous person from the Netherlands flew a Phantom 2 Quadcopter to a height of up to 3.4 km. That is more than 3 km above the maximum European Union legal height of 120 meters, which has applied since July 1, 2015 to hobby drones. Undoubtedly he set a new record of sorts, which also led to substantial discussions among the drone pilot community on the safe use of drones. At a height of 3.4 kilometers or...

    A warning to anyone thinking of buying a drone. Do not buy a Chroma drone from Horizon Hobby / Blade. It is a defective product and Horizon Hobby refuses to support their customers.

  • Issue#469: Quadcopter - Phantom camera performance

    It's been suggested that DJI intentionally degrades the performance of their products. This may be a marketing ploy so they can sell you the same equipment down the road as a new and better performing piece of kit. It is suggested that the pro model camera is capable of 260mbs write speed but is cropped down to a mere 40mbs leading to poor performance issues, the industry standard is 100mbs... It is suggested that DJI is deceiving it's customers... Is it true... Sounds plausible. See the... Phantom camera performance
