    I think the best after a few beers.. or do I ;P Anyways I was curious if anyone knows of a way to relay voice from the ground to the drone over a small (super light,I would add) speaker. This would have to be a super light weight kit. I am just speculating and am curious more than anything so don't worry I will not be creeping around in my phantom yelling at people.

    This would be a BIG NO NO!
    As your speaker has a ( strong magnet ), it would interfere with ( magnetic compass ), causing all kinds of flight issues
    And ultimately producing a huge possibility of a FLY-A-WAY!

    I would give this a HUGE NO! ( but would be kinda cool though )! Lol.

    If you look back, there are tons of posts where people were driving to
    A new flying spot, when they got there their phantoms crashed, landed hard, flew away
    And several other issues, come to find out it was caused by a car door speaker magnet, screwing up compass!

    Of corse do what you want to, but I DO NOT recommend this !

    Sorry, I know that is NOT, what you wanted to hear, but is the truth !
    Take care, and fly safe!

    No actually I was looking for both sides so that's great. I agree would be kind of cool.. So what I got out of that is don't fly by car speakers? Like I said i'm a few beers in ;0
