Hello, Just bought a used PHANTOM 2 complete with three batteries, charger, cam, range extender and transmitter for $300.00. Did I get a deal ? Am reeeeally green about this all. A college sciences faculty emeritus, am interested in Drones as educational tools especially when it comes to telemetry and remote data acquisition. http://www.vernier.com Had problems with Phred my Drone tipping over. So, I fabricated a light basswood strut extension that gives more stability. Extension is firmly held in place with rubber bands like on my 1940's freeflight model airplane. Thoughts, criticisms, and recommendations welcomed.
Hey guys my name is Dan and I am brand new to this site, forum, and everything drone! I am extremely excited about all things drone and I am very eager to learn. I am hoping to connect with others in the community here as I have no experience and roughly 7645333872 questions. I live in Chicago and consider myself about one of the most outgoing people ever. If you have any questions for me ask anything anytime. In hopes of getting some basic info out of the way so you know where my head is at, I have been spending a lot of time reading and researching and dreaming for about 2 years now and I think the time has come to go for this. It is my dream to own my own drone photography and videography business one day and get FAA licensed on August 29th when the test is available. I am looking to start small, gain a customer base, and one day go full time and live my dream. As for right now, I am taking things one step at a time and trying to make sure I can pass the test and get licensed on August 29th before I waste a ton of money on expensive equipment. Next will be forming an LLC, and then really going for it. I am looking to start with a DJI Phantom 3 to get myself going and learn and practice, with the eventual goal of getting a Phantom 4 or probably the 5 will be out by the time I am ready to do that. Unless Xiaomi comes to the US with something mind blowing, I am extremely convinced DJI has the best stuff for the money and what I am looking to do. I would love to hear any thoughts or recommendations concerning DJI if anyone wants to throw in any input. Especially from anyone who owns DJI themselves or lives near me in Chicago! Thanks so much for reading this long ass post, I would love to get to know you guys!
My wife bought a Phantom 4 for me when they came out, love flying it. As close to the real thing as you can get. Had a wild hair that I could do some kind of agribusiness with vineyards since that's what we do. Was very disappointed with the rules last spring regarding what you needed to have to go commercial. We are very excited with the new rules and are looking forward to doing something commercial in both real estate and vineyard inspections. Anyone else flying vineyards, I would love to talk to you.
