    It's these circumstances like you described that can be so stressful. I haven't had any problems like you described but I feel your concern.

    ISIS fighter killed by drone bomb he was operating after it ran low on battery and flew back

    It was all planned.... The drone was built in the USA! :) We had to do something with all those bad XSP batteries. Lol

    Stunning storm-chasing video filmed across 30,000 miles in 3 months

    That's awesome! I have always wanted to film a storm in the distance with my EVO or XSP but conditions have not been right when I have the time to do it. One day, things will be right and I can do it. I've seen a few "lightning hits drone" videos and I'm not with that at all. Lol

    Invalid command

    Mine did that exact same thing on my very first flight. I had to google how to launch it and I have always crossed the sticks at the bottom from then on. When the sticks are crossed, the motors start then you can actually launch with the left stick.

    EVO Explorer App Users--It is now officially released! Boat Mode & Mission Planning feature v1

    Dang! I just got reminded of the good info available here. I have been so busy working... but business has slowed down a bit. Now I have a good reason to work on my own boat instead of everyone else's.

    Line-of-Sight past 1 mile?

    Also check bicycle lights as some of them are small and lightweight. One in particular is the Surfas Thunderbolt. I have several red tail lights and they last a long time. I don't have a white headlight but they are bright and have a high/low for both steady on and flash. Somebody that was good...

    Shaky gimbal

    I experienced the exact same thing today at the lake. It was windy but not really gusty. I would say a steady 15mph wind. I landed and calibrated my gimbal and it seemed to have went away. I will try and post some videos if I have any of the jittering.

    Motors rarely start and drone won't fly forward

    Mine done that on the firmware it came with. Have you updated it?

    Time for a New Phone... Red Hydrogen One?

    What really attracted me is the outside appearance and the battery life. It has a rather high capacity battery. I haven't done a whole lot of reading but you are probably right about the Explorer app running as it would on any other phone. I remember hearing someone in a video say that there was...

    Time for a New Phone... Red Hydrogen One?

    Yep! I use the controller screen sometimes but it's too small for me to completely trust myself with it. I'm use to most of the settings and their location when using a mobile device. As for a tablet on the Evo, you need a neck strap to hold the tablet in the right position. The the weight...

    Time for a New Phone... Red Hydrogen One?

    Thanks! I'll have to check it out. I really haven't ever had a dedicated phone or device for my drones. I just use my every day cell phone. I can see that being handy especially when a friend or family member wants to fly my other drone with me.

    Time for a New Phone... Red Hydrogen One?

    I wouldn't say that it's a gimmick phone. The Hydrogen One is awesome! I just simply wanted some feedback on how the graphics were when displaying live feed from the drone. I personally would not own another Samsung product and Motorola is on its way out as I have experienced failures in the...
