    Welcome to the party rceccanti,

    What you need, they tell me doesn't exist yet.
    I'm searching high and low for the parts and pieces to make it work. I haven't found what I want.

    If where you want to go is across the street, put a chair near the window. :lol:
    Oh yea, me think me be funny.

    Where are you on this wild and crazy planet :?:
    Are you the proud owner of a Phantom 1 or, did you start here because you thought this is where new Phantom owners start?

    For the most part, we're here to help. I know I am.
    Some of us will have fun along the way, some, not so much.

    Enjoy

    Hi rceccanti!

    Welcome to the hobby! I will reply to your other post separately :)

    Firstly the video you linked was performed with several pilots placed along the flight path to maintain line of sight and radio link. This is because you are not allowed to fly non-line of sight, which is what I gather you are looking to do with your phantom. However if you want to sit inside while flying there are ways around it but it requires planning. See the flitetest video below.

    These guys used spotters stationed outside to maintain line of sight though.

    Not putting words in your mouth but it sounds like you are expecting your phantom to be a simple toy. Which is fine but this toy can do some serious damage in the wrong hands so just fly carefully and maintain line of sight with it at all times. Just remember a poor pilots actions reflect badly on all of us!

    Now onto your fpv post...
