    I guess this must have been posted on here somewhere but I had not seen it. Stumbled across it on youtube. Watching this makes my blood run cold.

    This is an old video of an early adopter of the P2V. Many firmware updated have come out since the P2V release which should largely help avoid things like this from happening. Short of user error in setup, etc.

    I'll bet the majority of that poor souls fly away was caused by all the electro magnetism around that railway & station. I find it ironic that alot of folks like to video trains and railways are the worst for electro magnetic waves. Surprised that compass even worked

    That was pretty cool. I mean by the way it avoided so much for so long. Between power lines and all.
