    NEW SC update

    Gloating post removed. Apologies.

    Smart Controller, HLG and setting Color Temperature.

    I'm looking for info on the techniques people are using to set the colour temperature (locked in so it doesn't change mid shot) when shooting in HLG format. I'm using the SC, but this would also be relevant on the standard RC. I love the increased dynamic range HLG gives and also shoot with this...

    DJI GO 4 ON SMART CONTROLLER

    Good luck with it ff22, at least we know it is possible as both myself & raven swe have it updated to the same version.

    DJI GO 4 ON SMART CONTROLLER

    I just did a normal "Play store" "My apps & games" "Updates" to get the latest Go4 (.24) on the SC. I have never downloaded apps from Amazon or any other site, just normal apps from Google Play Store on the SC. Maybe it's because I looked for it on Play Store, rather than waiting for it to...

    My SC setup is finally complete

    I use the home made crossbar for the Lifthor with the 970 batteries. Balance is good, plus you naturally hold the SC to reach the controls so it makes it an easy hold. I was hoping Lifthor would see my additions and add it to future units. I also have added some spare threaded holes in the unit...

    Standing before the Golden Drone -- a bird averting skin

    My answer to pesky birds.... threaten to arrest them if they get too close!! I'm looking for mini flashing red & blue lights & siren to add to my M1P & M2P fleet :) Obviously way too much time on my hands.......

    I made this attachment to get the lanyard out of the way. I use a detachable camera neck strap. (Tyeka). 😆

    Does turning off lights increase flight time?

    Does turning off lights increase flight time?

    Nice suggestions. I already use a Marco Polo as we are nowhere near to cell towers. Had to use it the other day to find the MP when an angry flock of vicious(sic) Galah's dive bombed the MP out of the sky km's away from me. Fixed wing would work to locate the sheep, but would be useless to...

    Does turning off lights increase flight time?

    Nice to hear similar experiences. The shear size of the sheep station, it's remoteness, the harshness of quad riding on our land, and the fact we have tens of thousands of scattered stock probably puts us in a different situation though, so pursuing any avenue is worthwhile to us. I did get a...

    Does turning off lights increase flight time?

    What a wonderful selection of replies. Thanks a million to all of you who offered your insights. Wind has been the biggest limiting factor. I've been using 5 batteries so keeping the RC charged has been as big a limiting factor, as running out of AC batteries. We had reasonably good results...
