  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

Hello from sunny 'Ull
« on: October 23, 2017, 10:29:52 »
Morning all! Just joined up here (after a bit of lurking) having taken the plunge and acquired a second hand (but unflown) Xiaomi 4k drone. I';ve not flown it yet due to the epic wind at the weekend but really looking forward to getting it in the air!

Xiaomi is my first foray into the world of "proper" drones but I';ve flown quite a few (from widdly little living room ones up to the brushless Hubsan X4) so I';m not a complete beginner.

I';ll probably be asking all sorts of stupid questions soon...

Ta very much! I can see this being a very expensive hobby (like I need another one of those...)

I';m coming at it from a photography point of view, but I';ve been looking at some of the threads about self building and getting ideas for a winter project already. I like the idea of something without all the GPS assist and such that';s a bit more of a pure flying experience.

Aye I';ve been browsing through some of the build threads with great interest, something small to chuck around looks like it would be great fun!

Cheers all! Took the Xiaomi out for its maiden flight yesterday and had a whale of a time, though it felt a bit like it was doing most of the work (because it was).

Definitely keen on building in the future, once I learn a bit more.
