Hello, and please allow me to introduce myself. I'm from Northern California and recently purchased a used FC40. It was in excellent shape and I have been following the posts and using this site as a resource until I was confident enough that I could begin to speak intelligently about my Phantom. There has been much needed rain up here so I have not been able to fly my quad, however I love to tinker so in the off hours I made the following upgrades to my FC40: T-motors 9450 Propellers Flytrex 1 (original model) Modified NPVT581 (I upgraded the antenna and took the control lock off the left controller) FiTech Mini 2D Gimbal A knock off of the knock off of the GoPro Detachable prop guards (I modified the mounts to allow use of my Phillips screwdriver) Next on the list: BosCam 2.4ghz transmitter Enlarge the door for a MulitStar 4000mah and Lastly, 2.4ghz datalink and PMU2 My ultimate goal will be to take arial photographs of my home town, Chico California. With all that weight, the t-motors are a must. I am curious to see what my flight times will be with the new battery. For now I will keep the original door, but I have a Big Battery Door in red from Germany ordered as well As a newbie, I just want to say how helpful this website has been in educating me on my drone. I am sure that I will have questions as time goes on, assuming I can get the drone off the ground.
