yea in Full Manual mode. I'll never touch it but guys that can fly that way sure can do some cool stuff
yep, in manual mode, the phantom can do front flips, backflips, barrel rolls, or any type of flip because the tilt angle is at 100%, so if you hold that right stick back, it'll keep tilting until you get a backflip or whatever it is you'd like to do. Also seen people flying sideways, using the thrust normally used to lift the phantom to go forward while using the right stick for sharp turns. I'm still trying to figure that one out though.
Hours and hours and hours and...........of practice. I would bet he dreams flying in his sleep.
When expert pilots just do fast flybys and loops and flips, it gets boring. But his stunts I could watch for a long time.
Never say never.
On a calm day, just get some altitude and flick S1.
It's not going to take off erratically, and safety is just an S1 'flick' away.
Any instructions on how to do backflips?
step 1: activate manual mode in naza m
step 2: get some good altitude to do the backflip (about 30-40 meters maybe) to allow for the drop in altitude and correction.
step 3: flip into manual mode
step 4: left stick remains centered, right stick goes all the way down and is held until you complete the flip and then level out or go back into gps mode.
protip: if things go bad, flip back to gps to level out again.
wait, so in manual mode, all i have to do is go backwards? and it will backflip?
I knew it could do a backflip. I just wasn't aware it could recover from one...
.....And when it plows into the ground and explodes into 1,000 bits and pieces, then ask yourself, "Why in hell did I ever use manual mode?"
Geez.... I'd wind up with a smoking pile of plastic if I tried half that stuff!
This reminds me of the switch to Naza Mode for some...lot's of speculation about how dangerous or perilous it is.
My guess is those speaking the most fearful haven't even tried it.
This is not a dis, dig, or otherwise meant to be pejorative, just speculation.
I've been on naza mode since day one. No differece at all. you just have more option in the assistant software. if you have all the failsafe features enabled, you're good.
That's my point.
Sure manual mode is dangerous if you will, but if you try it under proper conditions you'll see that the a/c will not just dive uncontrollably to earth once you flick S1.
I understand some are here as pilots and enthusiast and others are just 'in it' for the camera so please don't think I'm judging anyone personally.
Not at all. I have tried manual mode and found it something for someone else to use. I commend those that have mastered it, but know it is not for me. I fall into the camera and nice picture gang and am not interested in flips or loops. A nice smooth rotation around an object makes a great video and works great for me.
This has got to be the best flying I have ever witnessed, I'm sure DJI would buy this video. What a great pilot you are! I could only wish to fly one tenth of the experience you have, of course at 76 years old I really enjoy just keeping the copter and all around safe.
You better be on the throttle at the right time too, or have a lot of altitude! In manual if you let the right stick sit at center the quad will drop like a rock, you need to be at about 3/4 throttle just to hover. Also the best way to do a backflip is to have some forward speed going, when you do some of the forward speed will translate into a little bit of lift once you pull back on the elevator.
Whoa! I'm confused... the throttle is left stick, no? Why does it drop with right stick at center?
That sentence completely lost me. My brain just went into RTH mode
It doesn't always recover as fast as you think. This was a barrel roll (left stick left) I tried without enough attitude (and i panicked in the middle) - i was LUCKY to say the least: http://youtu.be/b4nmRd-uzRw
Tried it without pausing and with more altitude - success: http://youtu.be/wuzxfmZO0R4
