    hello evryone


    i want to try flying my P2V from inside a moving car, any tips for a newb?
    will the car electronics /cars glass and doors etc have effect on the tx controll and video feed? i plan to have the phantom take off from the road in front of the car and follow it :D

    thanks

    I would fabricate external TX antenna that it can be secured on the car's roof!
    I can's see any other problem, but you have to be very experienced that you can fly it on that way.

    I've seen a video where the passenger controlled it through the open window, I expect if it were closed you'd still get enough signal to operate close by.

    If you could control it frpm a convertible car with the roof off it would be much better for signal quality or a sunroof. Let us know how you get on.

    That HPI guy did this Search for his youtube video. It's one of his first ones from about a year ago.
