  1. What kind of flying experience do you have?
  2. I'm a big fan of the micro and nano Hubsan X4 series. Great for flinging around and not caring too much when you destroy or loose it. How does the Hubsan H501s compare to a 250 class quad? It's price point is comparable to a entry level 250 racers like the Arris C250 v2.
  3. Just an FYI: If you have a hotspot on your mobile phone you can join the Pro+ built-in android to your mobile hotspot. This way the DJI Go 4 app has an internet connect when you're out in the field.
  4. I agree with @Juggernaught. If you're flying an expensive aircraft, it might be a good investment to add GPS tracking. I lost a small FPV racer after loosing the video feed. It sucked but I didn't loose sleep over it.
  5. I usually maintain a constant angle of decent like you would with any manned rotorcraft in order to avoid vortex ring state also known as settling with power. Unless there is a strong headwind, in which case entering into a vortex ring state is not likely.
  6. If you're planning "an upcoming shoot" in NYC, I'd recommend checking with the New York City Mayor's office to see if a permit is required. https://www1.nyc.gov/site/mome/permits/permits.page
  7. How much flying experience do you have? If the answer is zero, I would recommend also getting a good flight simulator like RealFlight. It will save you a lot of money in virtual crashes in the long run.
  8. I just noticed that your community login/signup is not secure. Your site is only using http instead of https. Which sends our passwords over the web in clear text. You can get free SSL/TLS certificates with Lets Encrypt. https://letsencrypt.org
  9. I've been considering picking up a mirco FPV racer like the Blade Inductrix FPV and some Crazepony Micro FPV Racing Air Gates to fly around the office.
  10. Save yourself a lot of frustration and money (in repairs). Buy a simulator and start logging hours in the sim. I'd recommend using RealFlight. When I first started flying RC helicopters I must have virtually crash over $30,000 worth of equipment before I got the hang of things.
  11. I'm sorr I'm sorry, placing any electronics in a fridge or freezer is never a good idea due to the possibility of condensation building up on the electronics.
  12. There is a big ol' TFR over the real estate project I'm involved with. It will be interesting indeed.
  13. OK, here's one more thing I think would be a cool improvement. The forum needs a favicon! Check out this screenshot for my sUAS related social bookmarks. UAV Coach is the only one without a favicon.
  14. Really great to see a constructive debate on the topic. I'm new to the forum and I'm enjoying it already!
