    I joined because I wanted to share this video of my brother's flight.

    The phantom don't like to come down at full stick (on the remote) it goes into a weird buffet.
    He went up, then it started to rain, so he tried to haul as$ back down to earth... It recovered from buffet just before splatting ground. got lucky. http://youtu.be/YndtSSJc2iA

    Yes it's called rotor wash. You can't come straight down too fast, you need to move side to side.

    Taking it up that high just as a storm was coming in, something tells me your brother has had other close calls ;)

    +1 - those prop guards also make Phantom handle like a kite.

    Oh yeah, the new BuddhaMuse. I read about that one. It smooths out time in addition to X, Y, and Z!
