Bwine f7 Am I welcome?

Welcome to the forum. We look forward to your participation and your view of the world.
 
Hello from the Crossroads of America Thomas Argo .

Not a mavic pilot but a new Bwinef7 flyer interested. Can I jump in?

There is a sister Forum to the Mavic Pilots with a thread with your aircraft.

You might check it out.


Welcome to the Forum(s). :cool:
 
I appreciate the welcome. I have my FAA small cert of registration.
The F7 is 550 g.
Totally new at flying with only 2 batteries of time in the air. Excited to see the possibilities. Nervous has a new meaning. It has no avoidance but I feel it was a good place to start. I was a pro wedding photographer until I fell off a 90 ft cliff. This gets me back in the game from ground level for my internal titanium parts lol.
 
If I see the sister site correctly there is one post for bwine. I am going to hang out as a lurker until I can offer something. What I see here is a WOW read.

Welcome from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, USA. We have a Member's Map in the Upper Right of the Title Bar. Click on "Members" and then Click on "Member's Map…" Check it out and you might find some new flying friends.


I see you already have been given the heads-up about DronePilots, and I also tried googling other forums that might serve you and your drone but no joy… I would advise you to visit YouTube and search for videos on you Drone.

Although you are not flying a DJI Drone, many of our members are also flying non-DJI drones and you might find some with your drone here. I hope we fill your expectations and don't be afraid to contribute the discourse…

Even if you have flown Drones before, here is some Good Old Fashion Advice…

You paid a lot of money for that Drone, put your phone number on it. If your drone gets lost or stuck in a tree and it finally comes down when you are not around, give the finders an opportunity to contact you so it can be returned.

Now, for the Fun Part, But do not let the excitement of the moment get the best of you. When you are going out to fly, do it slowly and deliberately. Get used to a set procedure and even practice it.

There are so many things I could write but these are the highlights that I feel need mentioning.

Plug in your phone/tablet into your controller; turn on the Controller and DJI Fly App (if it does not start on its own…). On the Drone, open the front legs, then open the back legs, then remove the Gimbal Cover.

The Gimbal is the most delicate item on the Drone and banging or bumping can damage it. I also fastened a short "Remove Before Flight" ribbon to the cover so it's more noticeable and I do not forget to remove it…

Turn on the drone and watch it come to "life." Watching the Gimbal go through its self-check is almost like watching a puppy or kitten opening its eyes for the first time…

Place the drone down (preferably on a Landing Pad) while it finishes its self-test (collecting satellites, etc…).

Check your battery status (Phone, Drone, and Controller), check the Signal Strength, by now the Controller should have reported it updated the Home Point.

Lift off, 6- feet (2-meters) or so, hover a bit, check the controls (move the drone a bit forward, back, left, right, yaw left and right). By now, your Controller will probably report again, Home point Updated.

If you go out in a rush and race thru your start up and take off before the drone has finished it prep, it may update its Home Point over that pond or that old tree you are flying over and in your excitement, you'll fly the drone long past it Low Battery point and when it engages Return to Home and lands in the pond or in a tree; it will be all on you…

Now go have fun, learn to fly the drone by sight before you try to fly it out a distance depending on the video feed, FPV.

I would also advise you to use YouTube and watch a lot of the Videos on flying and setting up the Drone. When it is too dark, too cold, or too wet, you can "fly it vicariously" through YouTube. Also watch some of the Blooper Drone Videos and learn how not to fly your "New Baby."

Fly On and Fly Safe…
