    Is that a Phantom Vision (non-plus)? And why did you leave it just lying there on the ground for almost 2 minutes? How far away were you?

    It Is a Phantom Vision 2 Plus With no Plus Camera .... Just a FC40 camera taped to it ....
    It was not on the ground for two minutes, it was on a tree .... So I had to go around a fence to grab it (it's a fenced park with only one gate)
