Will be buying the Phantom 4 end of April.

Will post some videos when I get it.

Couldn't get follow me mode to work well so hopefully active track is as awesome as it looks

As far as I know the camera's only able to see 60 degree, object following goes out of the view then it will stop.

How is the Tap to fly?

I have one if those "irritate the girlfriend and the cats" nano drones (size if a R5 coin). Lots of fun just dicking about.

I do feel like upgrading to one if those Hubson (SP?) ones with FPV though and maybe one of those DJI phantoms one day for photography :)

Very cool!

How hard is it to fly those? You use FPV right? How does it work when you rotate the quad, does the controls switch the other way around? Or is it much simper when using FPV?

FPV, like flying a helicopter and you gotta know how to fly by looking at drone only.

very cool,

do you worry about birds? if you fly near a park or some empty place,
can a hadeda bring down one of your machines?

Here is my contribution to the drone videos. I have also read that SA's flight limit is 45meters. I posted a thread about the frame rate shudder i need to fix.

Great video... I'm currently contemplating if I should buy the 3 Standard in a couple of months, or save up and buy a 4 later. Really want to get started though. More for aerial photography than video. How are you finding the Standard?
