    Had my P4 for couple days and yes its fantastic......... thinking about attaching two S1 torches, they only 30gram and offer 500lm of light (apparently they will light up a football field) to landing skids and using for a "security patrol" at night (when dogs get upityy) on my large property?!?!

    Any feed back on this "idea"?!?!?!?

    the company i work for has a security division, & had experimented with using drones to patrol smaller sites or sites with single guards. I think someone mentioned the operators needing licences as they were in theory getting paid to fly & the idea's gone very quiet

    The weight shouldn't be a problem since many people are attaching trackers that are double that weight.

    I have a friend that uses his P3 to do surveillance on a few thousand acres they own. He uses Litchi and sets up a mission with way points, altitudes and points of interest. I flew with him last weekend and I was impressed how the camera stayed fixed on those points of interest on the 5 mile mission. We just sat back and watched it fly and film the route. Pretty neat stuff. he hasn't done any night missions yet.

    Wouldn't some kind of IR capability for night security surveillance be an interesting application..

    I have used my P4 for surveillance at my local club - we have had an issue with people getting inside and damaging property - caught them once and they took a shot at it with a .410 but no damage - haven't been back since though

    Ok so kind of answered my own questions about using P4 to patrol on a "dark night with my dogs barking".........ran a way point flight path around my property, strapped on a powerful "gun light" and it worked perfectly!!

    Right above you.
    If your talking about the "Baton" S1 Torch , make sure you take the magnet out of the tail cap first or it will mess with the Phantoms compass.
