Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Found this on a Facebook link on my page. At first I was " wow, thats cool" but then on reflection, some of the sequences could have gone horribly wrong.  Is this, perhaps, why there is negative legislation being enacted in the USA?  And perhaps why we should be quite careful of what we do in the UK for fear of similar regulation.  Although our own CAA regulations, when adhered to, would likely give the RC pilot some food for thought before flying such sequences.

Current FCs: Pixhawk, APM 2.6, Naza M V2, Naze32, Flip32+ CC3D, KK2.1.5
Aircraft: miniMax Hex, DJI 550 (clone) TBS Disco, 450 Firefly, 250 Pro, ZMR250, Hubsan X4, Bixler 2


Quite agree, very nice sequences but in places times where third parties safety was ignored in the interests of a good video. It';s easy to see why legislation is introduced to discourage this sort of thing and it would be a shame to see this happening in the UK,  so basically it';s up to us to make sure it';s not necessary!

Some great flying in there, but flew over people a few times - always a no, no, no consideration for those he was filming.  I gasped when he flew over the finishing line about halfway through, really thought he was going to catch it and come down on the runners. Also no sign of a spotter at the end.

I wouldn';t want to fly a full sized quad anywhere near as close to crowds of people as that guy did.

He';s obviously a good pilot - things could still go wrong for him though.

A very high level of pilot confidence, and a bullet proof insurance policy!
