    Hi, I'm researching safety with phantom and discovered that you can drop your phantom accidentally using the CSC command, has anyone done this?
    There is a video on it


    To me seems like a dangerous feature to have as drones can drop out of the sky accidentally.

    The real question is why would anyone pull the throttle all the way down while having the quad rotate like nut? Isn't that like committing suicide just by that action alone!

    Good point, as explained in the video people have descended and moved the sticks into this position accidentally while turning, I don't have a phantom yet but just looking at all the possible dangers.

    As mentioned, this has been discussed many times. Bottom line, there does need to be a way to kill the motors in any situation for safety. The likelihood of randomly performing a CSC is almost nil.

    CSC was primarily designed as a protection in extreme emergency condition when you would not like to allow phantom to go ahead in any case and dropping out of the sky is the best solution. We always ask ourselves if the CSC provided is safe enough as people have by mistake operated it during flights. DJI has come out with another CSC procedure , hope that is safer. Is that the real exit door during emergency?

    Maybe dji should install an emergency parachute, not a bad idea.

    The CSC as motor start also makes it difficult to power up accidentally.

    Another way to look at this

    If you are flying at 400 ft FAA ceiling, you pull your throttle all the way down and rotate left continuously and at the same time you go full backward and tilt right! With or without CSC, your quad will crash. The only difference is do you want your prop going 2000rpm when it crash.

    We don't need another CSC thread. Closed.
