    Drones, UAS, Quadcopter, RC flying machines, UFOs

    I know the list of people on here that have flying toys is growing. I'm on my 4th year of flying, and my 2nd year of doing it professionally. I'd love to chat with the Fahrenfolk about their drone adventures.

    I currently have two DJI Inspires, one with an X5, and one with a X3. The X5 rig is getting repaired from the low battery RTH gone wrong. I also have a Blade Glimpse and a Blade 120SR, as well as a couple little Cheerson CX's for indoor play.

    Here's a 360 pano shot with my Inspire X5 setup.

    My Inspire X3 rig over Trillium Lake.


    And my 2015 Reel:

    I hope to pick up a FPV racing rig one of these days, but too much money is tied up in remodeling my studio, and in work drones.

    The racing that people are doing is pretty awesome.

    I just have a couple of eachine h8 minis and a couple Estes Proto X nanos. They're good for flying in the office at work

    Oh hai! I still have my P2. I built a 250 racer. I have a couple of eachine h8s and one has an fpv setup on it. just picked up an axial scx10 truck too. waiting on my 1500mW vtx so I can build a mountable fpv unit with a action cam to put on whatever I like. this shit is pretty crazy.. sorry. FB tends to drag me away.

    I've just got an H8 Mini, but it's so twitchy, looking at other small quads to help learn on, maybe something a little slower to fly around inside.

    yeah.. I'm not sure what you'd find that's less "twitchy". The Estes Proto-X Nano I have.. I used to think it was fairly easy to fly once I got used to it. Now I think the Eachine H8 Mini is easier to fly. Maybe I've just gotten used to it though.

    Haha!! This has seemingly started to become an issue ever since I got the P2.... my 1.5w vtx showed up today so tonights project is to build a mountable/portable gopro/vxt station that I can put on anything.. Range will be epic. Keep in mind, this power is for those with licenses only

    well crap, a quick add up of parts I'm looking at comes to about $400, but at least it should be below 500g with everything on it

    Tell her that you need to get a camera up in the air and this is the first step.

    I could care less about having a camera up in their air
    And she knows I don't spend money on photography stuff any more.

    I just want to fly fast

    No, I keep forgetting to turn the camera on. Ive not flown it much. Its pretty unstable by comparison with the p2. I also cant really fly it at home because its really fast and covers lots of ground in a short matter of time.

    All over... I've been doing a lot of research. Most of my orders end up being from banggood and hobbyking, but a couple are from smaller sites. So far.. shipping has been fast. I'll have my first orders by Tuesday or Wednesday, then I need to get some electrical bits, the pdb, and video related parts.
