Thanks! It was shot with my DJI Phantom FC40 aerial platform and GoPro Hero3+.

It was really an amazing place to fly, but since I didn't have an FPV at that time(hadn't brought it along) I was afraid to go too far out of visual range.

Also, the ship/river boat was constantly drifting, so I had to change home points constantly. It was fun though!

Nice one!!

It didn't seem to have a gimbal, but it had tilt control? (My Phantom 1 arrives tomorrow night - finally ).

How do you reset home points? Did you have to fly over the boat and then reset it?

Oh wow! Do check out the website - phantompilots

Mine doesn't have a gimbal yet.I'm thinking of getting one though!

No tilt control either, it was just me, tilting the FC40 to counter the winds.

Have only done some range extending mods for long range FPV video and flight control!

Yea, I was bringing it back over the ship to do home point reset. You can set it anywhere while flying, But I kept it close to the ship, so that I can regain control in case it went into failsafe mode and "went home"

(You just flip the IOC switch(on the left of the controller) through its range of motion, 5 times. Successful, registering is indicated by multiple green blinks)

Post Re: Official - Cool, funny, amazing and weird audio and videos thread

I don't know, what category this comes under.

Here is how I "wish" all road rage guys were answered - with rage.
But, then we aren't supposed to (?)

Please skip to 5:42 mark on the video. (I have shared the video with t=5m42s, but, it still plays from the start - I don't know why)




But, then, as I think of it - it will only cause the road-raged-guy to be even more angry & prepared - the next time he drives.

Sigh,

Ace.

A cool video having the Suzuki Carry (or is it Omni itself?) with a rotary engine swap.

yeah, yeah .. There are tons of videos showing Suzuki Carry drifting, burnouts and even stoppies, but they were all kind of style wise different from our Omni.
But the one in this video is just weirdly Maruti Omni like. Down to all the bumpers and lights.

Default Amazing Talent - Videos

I've been wanting to start this new thread for sometime now. The world is full of fabulously talented (relatively unknown) people. Nowadays, thanks to youtube, one gets to see some of them.
Here is one such person - an amazingly talented man, Johnny Nana who seems to be a one man band - I think he is based in New Zealand. He, with his equally talented son, have uploaded some super music and I am putting here the links to a couple of them.







Would enjoy watching videos of unheralded talent here.

(Mods - do move this to an appropriate thread if one exists)

Three dogs learn to drive a mini cooper around a test track in NZ

https://www.youtube.com/user/TheDrivingDogs





ps: having that woman for a driving school instructor would probably drive me crazy, but I suppose the dog likes it.

pps: wonder how they let maruti copy the exterior so much for the swift ..

The Safety Truck consists of a wireless camera attached to the front of the truck, which is connected to a video wall made out of four exterior monitors located on the back of the truck. The monitors give drivers behind the truck a view of what is going on ahead, even in the dark of night.

This allows drivers to have a better view when deciding whether it is safe to overtake. Another advantage of the Safety Truck is that it may reduce the risk of accidents caused by sudden braking or animals crossing the road.

Samsung led the prototype development by providing large format display samples, and conducted a test with a local B2B client

Next Steps

Currently, the prototype truck built is no longer operational. So far Samsung has been able to confirm that the technology works and that this idea can definitely save the lives of many people.

The next step is to perform the corresponding tests in order to comply with the existing national protocols and obtain the necessary permits and approvals. For this, Samsung is working together with safe driving NGOs and the government.
