think I have got the hang of hand catching now.
hi Chris, you don't sound too impressed.
The P3 is so easy to land... And landing for me is half the fun....
I was just expecting, well, anything I guess.
Hundreds of existing posts on this. Then I saw the video so thought you were going to snatch it out the sky while shooting along in a your Elise, or a dog was going to jump up and catch it, or something unexpected but awesome.
However it was literally a hand catch (shot in a way that you couldn't see the hand catch)
yep, you are quite right it easy to land but I want to get used to catching it as well because its not always possible for me to land on a flat surface, the other day I was in a field with very long grass and to land in the grass might have caused problems to the camera and gimball so I thought I would have a go at catching. where its possible I will always land correctly.
very funny chris, lol...I like your comment,
The very fact it was such a boring video proves my point perfectly. ALWAYS hand catch!!!
All it needs is a gust of wind or a little bit of uneven ground and you have a damaged P3 - just not worth the risk.
Thanks for posting it maybe just maybe now people will realise it is a tad safer than juggling with a chainsaw!!!
I'm with Wibble, no reason to EVER land at your feet!! To many things to go wrong!! Not worth it! No matter how good of a pilot you are, unless its just that much fun for you. Only excuse to have it land to the ground is emergency landings hundreds of feet away!
I agree, I hand catch when on rocks and dirty surfaces.... I was just throwing that out there.
