  • JeremyE: The surface is constantly changing and you have way less time to react.

  • ched999uk: Rally is great to watch and they display amazing control and skill. The problem for me is only seeing very limited clips of cars and it's a tie trial only. OK so the surface changes and they don't get to try the track before it matters. I like to see F1 drivers overtaking, OK so before anyone says what overtake in F1, it is getting better :)

  • shawdreamer: dont mean to take anything away from F1 drivers but when they race they rely on the road surface being dependably and consistently the same everytime..... a rally driver has to has to adjust his technique on every single turn and bend and take account that everytime another vehicle go's through that turn and bend ahead of his it changes the nature of the surface, F1 drivers are skilled, Rally drivers are skilled and brave..... and more than a little nuts

  • shawdreamer: "once ina while" is all very good with F1 but you watch a rally and everytime its a spectacle.

  • ched999uk: I assume you missed the F1 today. It was ore like rally cross!!!
    June 25, 2017, 23:45:50
  • shawdreamer: thats why Rally motorsport is the only motorsport ill even entertain anymore, those guys display almost inhuman skill levels everytime the go out, compared to driving round and round a flat tarmaced race track in a F1 is just a piece of pi55

Gone and done it!
« on: January 07, 2017, 17:18:48 »
Hi,

I'm new to the forum but have been enjoying my Phantom 4 since it came out, curiosity got the better of me and I decided to see what all of the fuss was about with these racing quads and acro flying...So, I've gone in at the deep end and ordered a UMMAGAWD Edition Vortex, Fatshark V3's, a pile of batteries + charger, spare props and a Taranis XD9 Plus.  I have everything except the Vortex, it cannot arrive quickly enough!

I realise that the Vortex is probably a lot more than I can sensibly handle right now, but I will tame it in the settings until I get used to it.  Any tips welcome!

Best way to learn mate jumping right in at the deep end. I've done the same thing nd loved every minute of it.
Happy flying pal

You should be fine with the vortex,
You can always get some less aggressive props but if you use angle mode and take it steady you should be fine, it is a nice enough quad but the lumenier 2206 2350kv are not the most powerful motors by a long shake (although superb efficiency and very smooth) and the weight is a bit in the heavy side for a racing quad.

Suggest you consider getting some 5x4x3 triblades, should take some of the skittishness out of it

Edit: I should reiterate it is a nice quad, my point about the weight and motor power is that it isn't an absolute top end racer, I wouldn't be too worried about being able to handle it, not suggesting you haven't got a very good quad there

Cheers for the feedback, it's good to know I've not made a duff choice!

It will be on Angle mode for the foreseeable future  :smiley:

Best off starting in Horizon mode as this will allow you to get used to doing flips and rolls while having the safety net of self-leveling. But move on to acro as soon as possible ;)

You'll love acro flying, it's a totally different game to flying a P4. Way more fun ::)

Hi started with an emax 250 and it almost put me off completely but was bitten by the bug, Changed to a vortex and found the out of the box setup made it much easier to fly. The only down side  is its very easy to fly past your current skill level.
There is nothing wrong with the emax it's all down to tune and unfortunately when you need it most you are least able.

I'd defo agree with Revs on this one. I flew angle mode about twice with my Nighthawk before I moved onto horizon mode.
Now I get to do flips and rolls but always have the auto level to bail me out
