When i was on my vacation i met with ray from this forum and we flew toghter and it was awsome to say the least, and in this video is the highlight of our adventure into the mountains of west virginia, we were at 3000 feet altitude to start with and i was not fortunate to have low clouds, they were soaring very high, enjoy the video.

A little off subject but,  Son flew his first drone a CX-20 into a tree and got it stuck on a branch over 50 feet high.  Hired a tree trimmer to retrieve the drone who used a single rope to climb up and free the drone.  Paid him 20,000 or about $7.00 for the most dangerous work I have ever seen.

I too enjoyed it very much and it was awesome, you might have noticed in the video there was forest fire in the video when we did the 8000 feet stretch, and after you left and i was done packing the park rangers stopped by to look at the forest fire from the outlook, great timing LOL

You are welcome anytime to the land of jersey where every inch is controlled by a law LOL

LOL .... From the post subject, I had no idea what to expect from you two knuckleheads.  One of you is bad enough.  Putting the two of you together can only lead to trouble.  hahaha ....

Actually, that was a pretty cool video.  The music makes you feel like the Phantom is out on its own, just having fun flying and exploring.

Nicely done ...

Thanks for sharing! Love the EPIC titles [é¿è]

Perhaps using FPV whilst flying through the trees ...

If I had an analog fpv camera mounted on it I would have gone through the trees at 20mph, but due to the 200 milliseconds lag of the lightbridge I opted to keep my phantom in one piece lol

Well done Willy.
Now this has got me thinking.
What about formation flying?
2 or 3 together in a group with another filming?
This is the stuff that will stop people being stupid around airports and No Fly Zones.

Oh that's on my agenda already as I am recruiting flyers and trying to send a message to people that there is so much to explore and anything can be the center of attention, it's what you make of it that counts, i think up to five can fly at the same time with no significant packet loss as if we do a correct manual channel spacing.

I already tested with Ray and we both went out 8000 feet following each other with no problems, I will measure the bandwidth of the channel and depending on that we can calculate how many can fly at the same time with no issues.

Thanks Willie.  Plan to do the same with another pilot but fly a little closer in.  Should be fun if we can maintain altitude separation.

I used the follow mode, I don't know why they have the fpv mode anyways as it's useless to me.
