re: DJI

Watch at Vimeo

these are the first flights of my F550 (at first, you can see the second spool up with a brand new 4S5000mA battery _ 3S was just not up to it (flying 3S, 6S or 9S on my other crafts))
I was pretty happy with it, although, and despite tuning, it seemed to always look for its attitude
After the tenth flight or so, in an other location, everything was fine and it suddenly decided to fast dive and crash right at my feet
Camera, destroyed
Battery, bent
Four propellers, two arms, both plates and GPS foldable mast destroyed

Got the stuff i needed to have it airborn again. Flew well. But i am not setting any camera on it anymore, nor the InfinityM gimbal with 2 axis alexmos dedicated controller I had got for it. In fact, I am not flying it anymore. We'll see.

Some people say FC should be tape-sealed and one should check for solar eruption maps. I say BS.

The gimbal (and new camera) will eventually go on my flybared Logo14 (Kontronik motor and controller and Futaba PCM radio system)

You guys fly safe

Thank you

Im not sure what you mean where the Americas cup races are concerned. I have flown my phantom over the sf bay waters many times now. It can be challenging because of the wind but nothing extraordinary once the possibility of a water landing is accepted and addressed. Also I'm not sure any of the footage was taken with a phantom, they aerial footage may have been taken with a full blown heli. Oracle is not worried about the cost of fuel.

If you are using a GoPro along with the WIFI app your asking for trouble. The GoPro wifi blanks out the NAZA system ..
