Cant wait to do a Qashqai inspired one!

That's a coincidence , it's my birthday in a few days and as I always get money to choose my own present from my family I had been looking at the dji phantom fc40 ( or mk1 ) as my van is on the coast this would be ideal for some great aerial footage and on weekends the jet skiers are out so that would be cool filming them

I like the dji inspire but your getting into serious money there lol but if I get into this then my hobby may have to change and I could sell my rifle and move from shooting targets to shooting stunning scenery on my very own inspire :)

Let me know how you get on Frankie please

What target shooting did you do the Craigfishing? I used to shoot 10 meter air rifle and 50 meter 3 positions.

My son (aged 32) treated himself to a drone at Xmas and decided to test its capabilities.  After just 5 minutes it flew off into the distance and fell from the sky (max radio control range). Geek

He's still looking for it LOL

I shot ft (field target) ,it got a bit much for me ,I needed my son to get me up after each shot lol , I do actually use a 10m rifle that was converted to 12ftp instead of 6 , it's an Anschutz 8002 s but with a big arse big Nikko scope on it lol , slightly different to your sights :)

Lol , shouldn't laugh ,must be horrible watching your money fly away , the higher end models have a go home feature due to its GPS system where if at any time the drone loses signal with the controller either from signal loss or if your controller batteries should die whilst flying the drone flies itself back to where it took off and lands there or within a couple of feet , clever stuff eh! , but it all comes at a price     sadly

Sadly one shot from my gun will scare the rest off as its not made to be silenced so it's a pretty loud crack when it's shot

Sorry for off topic

Back to quads , reading bad things about the fc40 so looking like I might be saving some extra to get the phantom 2 vision

I got mine from London Camera Exchange (Winchester), really helpful, got a package with two batteries, 2 sets of rotors, carry bag.

Plus the chap owned one himself, and does not mind the odd phone call.

My son eventually got the drone returned to him. He's now paid big bucks to upgrade the drone with all bells and buzzers including a set of goggles which plays back real time camera footage which gives the impression that he is onboard actually flying it!

Again he pushed it to the limit, this time upwards!  Whilst he was enjoying the view he didn't notice that the winds were stronger at altitude and blowing him down range.  As his batteries were running down he suddenly realised he wasn't where he thought he was and ended up flying back to base against a head wind.  Luckily he made it home with all alarms flashing.    Kids eh?
