    Because the embedded video is so tiny better click the link below to open it bigger.

    Man, that is so cool! Seems like you would have got a little higher, would do some real damage at that speed!

    Awesome video of the flips.

    What's the sticking technique to do a flip?

    Basically it is a short full throttle then less throttle together with pressing in one direction until it is in level position again and full throttle. If you never flipped a quad before it is hard because in the standard settings the dii phantom has a huge flipping radius. (not like in the video)

    That's amazing. Smash it into the ground on purpose. Wow.

    Looks like you got something wrong. What makes you think this was on purpose?

    I'm just wondering how long it's gonna last with those kind of crashes over and over. It does look like fun though!

    That thing looks really sluggish, Im wondering if thats the Naza, motors, or speed controllers or a combination of all three. I know in my looking for a replacement for the Phantom I keep hearing people say the Naza doesn't fair well in aerobatics and SimonK flashed speed controllers are a must.

    Are you working on rolls yet?

    Usually it doesn't make sense to buy a quad with GPS, IMU and all that stuff only to fly it manually in end, so yes - it is right: the Phantom is not build for aerobatics.

    Hello Mark,

    in the video you can see flips (forward, backward) and rolls (sideways) as well. Or what exactly do you mean by "rolls"?

    If you go up 10 meters more before flipping, just could recover from falling ;)

    That could be true, but this is something one can see only afterwards. Besides that I wanted to film it and it is already awful small.

    Flipping and Rolling can be done in phantom ofc, but you loose altitude, so u need to go higher to perform it safe.

    here is my friend flipping some.
