OK Jo and Zim, I must be dumb as a post because this high dollar DJI and I are not forming a beautiful relationship. After a half hour this morning in a huge open sports field where I couldn't hurt anything (but myself!) I packed the darn thing up and tossed it in my car.

Start up and lift off seemed normal, then it acted like it had a mind of it's own, full speed diagonally with little to no recognition that I was attempting control inputs. Maybe I need to do the whole calibration regimen all over again. I'm

I thought I answered this already, but I don't see it; so here goes again...

That doesn't sound like anything I've seen with my Phantom, Jim. Calibration? Maybe. But if you can't just let go of the sticks and have it auto-hover without drifting, I'd suspect a defective controller or a bad GPS module.

Probably what Zim says. I'm in the UK for another ten days or I'd have a fiddle with mine. I still have yet to really get familiar with the array of light displays; I'm sure it is trying to tell me things. Mine sauntered off the other day but it was quite breezy at the time. I had to hustle it back. More training required for me.

Great to hear that Mike. I like that 2nd pic.
Best of luck for Jim and his Corsair.
I'll add these... These are from last year before I knew that the idea was spinning prop discs, not frozen...

Score another one for media accuracy, on any subject, "It appears that this aircraft will be able to perform in this weekend's show........" Really?! I know the crews at Reno are used to burning the midnight oil to swap an engine, tweak a blown canopy, etc, but I'm thinking this one will require a flat bed trip to Nelson's shop and a bit of TLC. Then again, this might be the most accurate reporting the media has been able to pull off in decades.

Thanks Jo and Zim. I spoke with the guy we bought it from and I think I'm going to send it off to him and let him deal with it. Yesterday's experience was just too weird and unpredictable to blame entirely on my admitted ineptitude.

Here's something cool that I stumbled on this morning. There's a Bluetooth backpack module for the GoPro 3+ that allows high fidelity audio to be recorded in real time. Seems the company makes all manner of audio gizmos for motorcycle and sports use. This discovery is very timely because my folks at David Clark called me yesterday to tell me they were sending me a pair of their latest DCProXP ENC/Bluetooth headsets.

Now if GoPro would just roll out the Hero 4, I'd be golden!

A crew did rebuild a very bent Mustang in one week after a off airport landing, and it won the Gold, but, they needed a week. A week

Actually Jim was supposed to bring the Corsair to PRS in June to try to get his rookie card and race this year.

Horn Point Antique Fly-in was today ..

It was a beautiful day and a number of planes came in.

A father and son flew in ..

The son flew in on the wings of a 1989 WACO YMP








The father flew in on the wings of a 1929 Fairchild 71 ( one of only 2 flying in the United States / the World I'd guess ). Had a 6 year restoration and today had 30 hours on it.

Next to the Spitfire and Vulcan, the Harrier is one of my favourites. I love your PP on that image.

Jim, Steve and all
I have just had the pleasure of playing catchup on many, many pages. Wow some staggering photos.

I notice that is some activity with GoPro cameras and DJI Phantom. Many of you may know that I have been playing with Multi-rotor craft. First off, with a DJI F450 quad and now a F550 hexcopter (6 props)

Jim, you mentioned a few days ago about hand held camera stabilisation. I have been messing about with a 3 axis stabiliser for the GoPro and have made a very crude handheld prototype unit.

I have also set up a long life battery system for the GoPro using the USB port with various power sources.

If anyone is interested in seeing the homebrew rig doing its thing

I have a short video on Youtube showing the handheld stabiliser in action:
http://youtu.be/UPJfIPgNaK0

And another showing the output from the GoPro
http://youtu.be/YQLOpkaYtV0

Shortly, I intend to mount the 3 axis gimbal on to my hexcopter.

Change of plan. I won't be at Duxford this weekend. I am too sore to spend 4 hours in the car getting there; it would kill my back. Sorry folks...

Nikon missed their earnings estimate and it looks like the CEO is shaking things up. Lots of top brass are out on their collective ears. I'd help the cause if they'd come out with the D800s and a great 17mmPC!
