    Anyone see the latest episode of the big bang theory? It features a malfunctioning Phantom vision through the episode, funny but don't see DJI being too impressed :) Screenshot_2015-04-24-20-07-53.png Screenshot_2015-04-24-20-08-28.png

    Yep they nailed it 100%
    Had to be the 3.12 update :eek:
    As far as DJI being upset I'd bet they get a spike up in sales .
    The best part tho like most seem to do charge it and try and fly read later :D
    The pilot did a good job :cool:

    I'd put a dollar it was all CGG, I was ducking as well.
    Even a M.I.T engineer couldn't put humpty back together again (so the story goes)

    Props to that pilot for not taking out any of the actors. Surprisingly they didn't use prop guards

    Okay, I watched this whole episode. I’m not a huge fan of the show BUT this one was friggin hilarious!! Watching them try to read the “quick start” guide and calibrate the compass had me rolling! They even made a jab at the Chinese to English translation that dji is so well known for. A must watch for sure!

    We are on s08 e17 so it will be on in 5 weeks at a guess. I'm off to torrent it now though, can't wait that long.

    Watched it this afternoon, quite funny, butv looking at the battery it didn't look like it was even turned on. I suppose they have to have dramatic licence. ;)

    The real phantom was nowhere near the actors when in flight. It was done in the editing room. No danger was imminent so no need for guards.

    I thought it strange when they tried the compass dance at the start and there were no battery lights on

    I love Hollywierd and hate it. They can make anything happen. I concur, there was probably no one on the set while the Phantom went wild.
    ****, I love this show.

    Thanks Mal, since you cant fly your "Rice in a bag Phantom" at the moment, you're still contributing.

    And folks, if I may, don't take it too seriously if you see it in a TV show or on "The Big Screen", it's Hollyweird.

    FYI, I don't do the typo thing often, and didn't do it tonight.
