Hi.

The aerial eye is shot with a dji phantom with a zeimuse gimble.


Today we filmed in 17-23 knots...no problem!

Did you say what gear was used, Toby? Can you travel with it easily?
Manual, attitude or GPS mode? Most, if not all GPS featured IMUs limit the bank/tilt angle of the drone, limiting by the same token the max speed?

To alexrider

I only use gps mode when the wind is that strong and you have kites around you.
It is very easy to travel with. I have it in my small back pack I have in the plain.

a diso pro will not fly 60mph... too heavy. I don't care if you have 1100kv tbs pro motors or not with 8" props.

I have a disco with 900kv 9" props and if I fly level in a straight line with the wind to my tail in man mode I get 46.8mph on the gps
on the dosd. linked to my phone plus full FPV.
been out 2.4 kms . getting some stuff from hugo so I will be able to double that hopefully.

If I fly with the wind behind me I can get 57mph sooping down toward the ground. ( no GO PRO , NO gimble)

I have been flying it for a year now best quad I have flown out of the 4 I have. Next one is going to be the QAV550g

Pushing 60mph with one with a gimble and a go pro it will fly for about 5 mins maybe if you are lucky


Ok ,thanks
I said that cause I read it on a forum not from testing myself. I have yet to get mine together, Its a daunting task to say the least. Do you have any videos?
if I put my gopro ( black ) not my go pro 2 I get 12-14 mins of flight just doing light not full power runs... if I put my black on and do full power runs with the tbs 4500 battery I might get 8 mins if lucky.

I have 10 batteries to play with and I have the 750kv motors as well and got about 18mins but would have to be carefull with wind and such with it.

oh and if you are looking at this site http://flytrex.com/challenges/speed/ I CALL BULL SH!t a phatom will not do 90 mph unless you are 1000 feet up free falling.... I want to straight level flight speeds..

It looked like they were using a copter during the snowboarding slopestyle competitions. You can see glimpses of it during the top section as they filmed the riders. If not maybe it was a camera on a cable.
