    Yeah nice work Sac,

    I only did my first fail safe test as I was filming my Son's F450 and we did it on that. So I decided to turn the TX on mine for the first time which worked like a charm.

    Here is the video of filming failsafe on the F450 using the Phantom for filming. Also a little extra on the end.

    I turned off the TX for this video, and one other time when I was in a large grassy field at a fairly low altitude.

    And that's about it for doing that test... based on the number of Phantoms that have wandered off and gotten lost, it's not worth the risk to lose contact intentionally!

    Great video! Well-edited, nice soundtrack, and very entertaining. That's what it's all about - having fun!
