    I thought I would share my experience of a meetup with forum member Shrimpfarmer

    Yesterday I picked up my new phantom 2 with zenmuse gimbal and Fatshark Attitude V2 FPV.

    So it started by a short drive to Hayward's Heath, Sussex UK to meet Ken at his home and get my Phantom 2 put into NAZA mode.
    Sadly there is a world shortage of the iOSD units, so home lock could prove useful.

    So we went with some messy actresses and a film crew and thought we would make a short film.
    There will be 2 versions of the film, 1 edited by me, and the other edited by Shrimpfarmer.
    My will be posted in the next few hours and Kens will make its way soon.

    All the preflight checks complete, Start recording the GoPro, turn on and wait for GPS lock.
    Sooooo.....
    My first FPV flight almost resulted in a lost Phantom V2. This was because I foolishly flew quite far and became disorientated on how to get back. Keeping calm I switched to Home lock and it majestically made its way back.

    The rest will be on the video

    So stay tuned to this post for the videos :)

    I just ordered a iosd mini from b&h Friday. That was the only place I saw that had them in stock.

    Great stuff. Love that shot looking down on the other Phantom flying over that large 'plug hole' :D
