I finish my seven night shift stint on Sunday morning and said to my other half we could walk the dog up the disused quarry near Matlock and I can have a fly with my new phantom but just seen the weather grrrr rain but still better than our US mates with the White stuff (snow).

Bigger props give better stability, lift and handling.

Shame you can't use your neighbours garden as it would make a great tank battlefield with all the construction going on.

Seems like you've grasped the principles of flight well.

They look stable....I don't detect any flutter in Phil's video and no blur in Horse's photos ....pretty cool technology ...also impressed with the altitude ....seems to handle wind changes well :thumbup:

Careful where you fly it! They're not allowed in national parks, you'll get a big fine and lose it. Also watch the neighbors so they don't shoot it down.

I'm lucky there's an old quarry where I take it , but I'm thinking about getting rid as I just don't have time to fly it.
