    Gimbal motor overload

    Thanks for all that, I had already checked for anything obstructing the gimbal and reseated the ND filter but maybe I'll try removing it. Other than that I guess it's time to use my refresh for the first time. Cheers

    Gimbal motor overload

    Took my MPP out over the weekend for a flight and the gimbal failed its calibration then kept trying to calibrate every minute or so. Flew fine otherwise but couldn't take it out more than a couple hundred yards. I checked the gimbal over and couldn't find any obvious problems, anybody have any...

    What do the Canadian regs define as a “bystander”?

    My understanding of the regs is a bystander is someone that is not under your direct control. Example you are getting a family picture and they are all standing together for the shot, they are under your control and you may be closer than 100'. anybody else that happens to be in the area that is...

    ILLEGAL TO FLY DRONES IN CANADA UNLESS...

    He was filming with his cell phone while driving that is $395 fine and 3 points and a 3 day suspension, and there were a couple of instances of that. Flying under the old regs he was to close to the buildings. Those 2 were just off the top of my head after seeing the video when it was first...

    Canadians: June 1's comin! - Got your Pilot's License Yet?

    As someone that has been flying a drone for a couple of years now I find the new regs to be considerably looser than the old ones. That being said we did not have to register or take a test, I would imagine you found the test pretty simple after a lifetime in aviation. I never and have no...

    Canadians: June 1's comin! - Got your Pilot's License Yet?

    Please explain to me what is wrong with enforcement. Keeps more people from endangering the safety of others. Or is it your view that there should be no rules whatever? Cheers

    Canadians: June 1's comin! - Got your Pilot's License Yet?

    I hate to state the obvious but if they don't follow the rules anyway they aren't going to get certified in the first place. What we need is enforcement of the rules. Government can make all the rules they want but without enforcement they are useless. Just watched the video in this thread...

    Canadians: June 1's comin! - Got your Pilot's License Yet?

    It isn't the easiest test that's for sure. Brush up on the act and remember Google is your friend. I do agree that the test has some questions that have little to do with drones but it's what we are stuck with until somebody in government gets a brain cell, is that an oxymoron, government and...

    Canadians: June 1's comin! - Got your Pilot's License Yet?

    Good luck, I briefly considered trying for my advanced but not really interested in flying in restricted airspace so sticking with basic. Cheers

    If I remember right to fly in the states you will need to register your drone. Cheers.

    Canadians: June 1's comin! - Got your Pilot's License Yet?

    That was the old regs, the new regs the advanced let's you fly in restricted airspace. Non-residents must apply for a SFOC to fly in Canada.
