    Very good video for new folks. This seems to cover a number of questions seen on PP and the DJI forum.

    Slightly related, that narrator sounded like he literally phoned it in.

    Funny enough as it is, all of this info is clearly defined.
    & Clearly in PDF ~ TFM. ;-)

    But getting some guys to read, is like me deciphering their spelling and grammatical buffoonery. A Difficult task. You can often tell who reads the Least, by the 'prose' they keep. for sure. Hahaha

    So, the show and tell portions, of our flight school, are ace. Hehe

    When it comes to antenna orientation, a picture or many pictures are worth a thousand words. I learned that even with the antennas parallel to the ground that direct overhead flight is problematic, as I have experienced when shooting spherical panoramas directly above my location, at say a friend's house. Also, during high speed flight, the aircraft antennas are no longer perpendicular to the ground, as when hovering at rest, but are actually angled with a forward tilt that needs to be matched with the RC antennas, such as the default antenna position at 45° tipped up from horizontal, instead of vertical and perpendicular to the ground. All good stuff! Thank you for sharing it!:cool:
