    Maybe sombody posted this already then I am sorry.

    I watched some really dum testing but this is the king, watch how he crashes the Phantom 4. My hart shrunk when I saw this [EXPLETIVE REMOVED] destroying this fine P4

    Yeah somebody posted this in the news forum. He also could have placed his P4 on a picnic table and then slammed the top shell with a ball-peen hammer to demonstrate that the craft will in fact shatter when struck with said hammer. Unbridled idiocy.

    Bad enough he did it, but why in the world would you post it and show the world you're an idiot!

    It looks like their only goal was to attempt to make a viral video. It's pretty sad.

    Well, of course -- since he probably didn't pay for it :)

    "Oops, I forgot there is no Obstacle Avoidance in Sport mode. Oh, well...":oops:

    He deliberately crashed it, before he could report on the inflated battery life and the inflated range! Never got to the really relevent stuff for most of us! :rolleyes:

    This guy knew exactly what he was doing. He was not ignorant, and knew exactly what would happen, because he had read the manual, and knew the limitations and wanted to illustrate them dramatically! Gooaaaallll! :p

    Most of the so-called "tech blogs" have become pretty useless with the exception of Tested. Too much sensationalism over substance.

    23s - "it can only avoid obstacles if it i2 flying straight forward"
    2m14s - "Now I'm gonna try a different tactic and fly it backwards into the fence"


    2m39s - "The lesson is don't fly it backwards"


    No the lesson is don't fly it backwards into an object when you yourself said earlier it only works when flying straight forward.

    IDIOT.
