    Any one experimented with speakers?
    I was just thinking that it might be kind of cool to fly around with speakers attached and have a conversation with people on the ground while in flight.

    I would think they could interfere with magnetic compass

    We had this discussion before:

    NO NO NO NO NO!

    Speakers are BAD, as they use high powered magnets, they will screw up your MAGNETIC COMPASS, causing all kinds of problems, and crashes!

    ( there has been reports about people driving their phantoms to the flying fields, then when they got there they crashed, just to find out, they put the phantom to close to their CAR DOOR SPEAKERS, causing compass error, ultimately ending in crash or bad flying conditions ( weird stuff when trying to fly ) uncontrollable flights, ect!

    Do what you want, but I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT!
    ( would and could be very bad )

    I know that is not what you wanted to hear, but I would hate you to wreck
    Your phantom ( $1200 ) over a couple dollar speakers!

    Take care and Fly safe!
