According to UAV systems international the vietnam drone code has no distance or height restrictions. So he actually did nothing wrong unless he was flying near an airport, which I couldnt see on the video. But I knew this post would bring out the drone police in droves, tedious in the extreme when they couldnt be bothered to check his countries regulations before posting about being irresponsible.
In VietNam, we only fly below 500m, and has restricted regions as airports, military areas...

How do you get such run time from your batteries! That’s insane.

Are you sport mode at 90% ‘throttle’ or do you use the middle switch position, no sensors and 100% throttle?

I’m the latter.
When i fly back, you can see i decrease the high attitude, and dont use S mode. Lets use P mode.

That was tense. He landed with three electrons remaining in the battery!o_O
The M2 will go over 1km on 0% and still be at 3.4x volts per cell. From there you can still get 30-45s of flight depending on how well balanced the cells are but cell balance below 3.3v is really hit and miss with DJI.

I have 115 cycles on one of my packs and it still produces 20km flights an an M2P. Screenshot_20190209-174414_YouTube.jpeg Screenshot_20190209-174447_YouTube.jpeg

Putting everything else (altitude laws, line-of-sight laws, cost, etc.) aside, that was ONE AMAZING FLIGHT - over 5 1/2 miles by my calculation. If I ever get tempted to do a max range run, I'll just watch this video again - instead.

Flying a drone at all is terrible. What it there’s a flyaway situation. One motor/esc goes rogue. There’s a gust of wind. You have a fit/seizure and can’t let go of the sticks.

All within 200m of where you took off.

I hope all the dickbags that feel the need to badmouth, only fly within arms reach and at walking pace at ALL times.

If not, “...it’s only the depth that varies” applies.

For the life of me, I can't understand these tests. They are unlikely to be legal in most places and what exactly is the point? How far you can fly is far less important than how well you can fly and how safely you can fly. How many posts do we need to have on this subject?
And yet here you are... Was the title misleading?
