    ok so Im getting rid of my phantom vision as its camera is done and decided to get crazy

    went up to 800 ft did a CSC and she fell like a rock
    Did a CSC again and throttled up it took a little bit but she righted herself and stopped cold about 500ft so dropped 300 ft in a few seconds :shock: :shock: :shock:
    Always wondered if that would work since I got her now I know . Don't know if the + gimbal would hold up to the flip as she did some tumbling :shock:
    but in a emergency now I know I can drop and recover :D

    Sorry missed a letter

    Corrected


    2 Starting/Stopping the Motors
    2.1 Starting Motors
    A Combination Stick Command (CSC) is used to start the motors instead of simply pushing the stick up. (Figure 50)
    Push both sticks to their bottom corners to start the motors. Once the motors have spun up, release both sticks
    simultaneously.

    so you intentionally shut down the motors while in flight as a proof of concept so you could perform a CSC start up while freefalling? got video?

    Credit Card?
    I'm pretty sure he's talking about cutting the engines (Control Cutoff?) and letting it just drop out of the sky.
