It has been about six month in the making but I think my kit is complete. I bought a large case, which in hindsight was a good idea, so that most everything I need will fit.

Thanks ALABAMA I ordered my lights and mounts last night...so even though they are not in the picture I know where they are going and where they should fit. In the process of planning my first night shoot.

I love my Plasticase Nanuk 945. Particularly with it’s 6 slots for extra flight packs, and plenty of room for everything in my flight kit.

Yeah,  including my DJI harness, both Lume Cubes with mounts, iPad Air2 and both OEM DJI 100w chargers.

I prefer, getting to leave the props on, too... ;-)

Aloha Kenny,

     Nice kit!  Be sure to either remove your sticks before storing the remote controller or be sure that the sticks are not touching anything like your harness (in the photo).  The metal memory of the stick assembly can become temporarily distorted if the sticks are not loose and free to stay at rest.  

     A remote controller calibration can solve the problem for a flight, but when the memory kicks in, after a while, you have to do another remote controller calibration.  Back and forth, back and forth.  Best to make sure the sticks do not touch anything.

     Hope this helps!

Aloha and Drone On!

Thanks and Aloha...Hmmm...never heard of metal memory. I generally leave the sticks on...I will have to look into that...never heard anything like that mentioned anywhere.

Thanks for the tip.

Yeah I love it...I think mine is the Nanuk 950, meaning mine has wheels and the collapsible luggage handle (I think that is the difference). It is a great case...only add on I want to get which I haven't yet are the power claw clamp converters that have the built in TSA locks...I bought those already for the one I have at work...just not for my own personal one yet.

You might look into a parabolic antenna... I don't know the conditions you fly in, but almost 2 years here flying missions in multiple types of environments with zero loss of connection and solid video.

Thanks. I have heard of antenna upgrades and boosters and have looked at them from time to time but honestly I haven't run into any issues with loss of connection with my Phantom 4 pro...not once yet. Thanks for the link and suggestion.

Good luck with those. A simplified approach. Haha

Cheaper, and less useful, by far.


Have fun, with them.

I considered a Nanuk 950, but it was just too big, for my SpYder.

Besides, it has wheels, but you can’t tow it. Haha


I prefer mine, with more storage compartments to store my extra gear.

Lume Cubes take up a nice space of their own.

I think they will work fine...if I need a spot light(s), not sure I will, or even just a more flexible lighting solution the lumecubes are the way to go...I am just trying to be FAA compliant and that is what they based my daylight waiver on...the strobon cree. I can get four with mounts for about $100.

You may still have an opportunity to say "I told you so"

Nah, I don’t bother.

If you make the choice to buy an inferior product, you may end up making a second purchase... ;-)

Aloha Kenny,

     The term metal memory is due to springs usually being made out of metal.  The stick assembly may not even use springs but any material, when distorted, tends to keep the distortion until time allows the material to recover its original position - metal memory.

     It is just a word to the wise.  I have seen it many times, but not in my DJI products, because I avoid even the possibility in DJI's sensitive input devices.  It is just a precaution to take to avoid having to solve another "mystery" and then get stuck in the back and forth of having to calibrate your remote controller repeatedly.  Not worth the headache.

Aloha and Drone On!

I am pretty sure it is close to 15lbs but I haven't weighed it. Figure the batteries alone are what probably 4-5 lbs.

Yeah I listened to an astronaut once. One that had been up several times. Space is the harshest environment...and you want to go to Mars. I am not saying we won't do it...but I don't want to be the first...we can't even agree on basic stuff.

What happens on Mars when government funding gets cut?

Trying to not get political. I love America...I am a U.S. citizen. I am a U.S. Army Combat Vet...I served my country in times of peace and war. I am proud of what we once stood for as a country. I love the constitution, the declaration of independence and our bill of rights. I think our founding fathers were brilliant.

All of that said, I am not a republican or democrat...I guess you could call me a constitutional independent with conservative leanings. The past twenty years I have become very conflicted about how I feel about my country. We have strayed so very far from the mark and the road we used to be on. I don't feel that the majority of our politicians represent me or my ideals and I don't see it getting any better.

I fly the U.S. flag in honor of what we used to stand for not what we have become.

I doubt it’s less than 20lbs. Weigh it and see, please.

I need to check on mine soon... been meaning to.

Yes, space is unforgiving...

Once they land on the Martian soil, it will be easy going. Hahaha

I doubt they will require much. It will all develop, on the planet surface.

But, It could be a different plant leaf now though. Hahaha

Yeah it is pretty heavy...I will have to weigh it and get back with you. That is why I bought the wheeled version...I only have to lift it to put it in the truck or up on a table or something.
