Thanks, Jim!

If I could bottle the magic that happens on some panning passes, I'd really have something. At 420mm and 1/60 sec, to have that second shot be a) fully within the frame and b) tack sharp is little short of miraculous. And I have 15,000 other frames from that airshow to prove it!

The rest doesn't matter Zim, what you captured and posted does, and they are outstanding.

Just finished installing new props and updating all the firmware/software in the Phantom and the Zenmuse. Now to get up to speed on the Black Pearl HD monitor. Got Sheila's attention tonight, after the updates, when I fired the Phantom up in the middle of the family room

Exxxaaaaactly! Given the standards we hold ourselves to here, my guess us most folks would be ecstatic over having captured most of the other 15,000 as well.

Welcome to MA2A, Itsed65. Neat shot of the Galaxy. Now that you have broken the ice and posted here, please hang around and post when you can. I am looking forward to seeing more from you.

Regards, Colin

Turns out the next frame in that panning sequence is sharp, too, which makes this stereo pair a stunner.

I did not get a photo Steve, but it is located on the back/east side of an existing Chevron Gas Station & Convenience Store at 3919 South Avenue 3 E. Here is a GoogleMap link:

I sent an email to the Tesla Supercharger team asking about the second Yuma Supercharger site. They wrote back and told me that they're not, in fact, working on a second Yuma site. So I wonder if what you saw is not a Tesla sponsored project. When will you next be in Yuma? Photos, or it didn't happen...

Yeah; what Jim said!
They climb fast and fall slower.... They come down faster if you put some sideways motion in there. I find myself having to do a falling-leaf type manouver if I want it to come down quickly, and in the same general bit of sky.



From the Phantom 2 Vision manual's Specifications page: "Max Flight Speed - 15m/s (Not Recommended); Max Ascent/Descent Speed - Ascent: 6 m/s; Descent: 2 m/s"

For those of you who don't do conversions in your head, 1 m/s is 2 knots, so 15 m/s is 30 knots. I've flown mine at max forward speed and it seems fine, though the video isn't very smooth. Descent can be tricky: I had a badly bounced landing once (no harm/no foul) due to a rapid descent in no-wind conditions. The copter got caught descending in its own vortex ring and I couldn't arrest the rapid sink rate that developed. Since I was at full power when it bounced and the gear legs held up, it just climbed away from the bounce. Could have been a lot worse.

Thanks, Jo! Maybe your recommendation will be an incentive to others who haven't yet learned how to free view a stereo-X pair.
