    I thought I read somewhere that Colin doesn't work for DJI any more. I'm ok with that.

    But now I can't find those how-to support videos with him unboxing, showing you how to fix the compass, first flight, etc.

    http://www.dji.com/tutorial/phantom-tutorial/

    I should have saved them off for reference later. Do you guys know where they may be?

    Thanks!

    I think that all that information is out there already you can just walk down the street and ask some 6 year old kid how to calibrate your compass on your Phantom and he'll show you as well as build you a new one from scratch lol.
    But I did some googling and checked all over youtube and still couldn't find a one. Not that I really care to watch them again just curious I guess.

    He introduced him self as Colin from DJI in most of them. No Colin with DJI means you can't have videos of him saying he works for DJI anymore.

    @FlyingFanta, in the future please use the search function before starting a new thread since you might find the answer quicker that way, and to avoid having many duplicate threads in the forum.

    A: Try http://www.droneslinger.com If the name sounds familiar, it's because it's run by Gunslinger.

    Sorry, I skimmed this thread about the DJI change but I couldn't find the answer to my question about the videos. Can you help point it out? Thanks.

    I realize the confusion I caused. I'm looking for the old Phantom 1 videos rather than the Colin Phantom 2 ones at http://droneslinger.com/dji.html

    Regarding the content, you're right in that there are much better ones out there. I simply want to keep these as I consider them as a part of the included instruction manuals. If you find them, please share! Thanks.
