Everything you need to know is in Post#1.

A few note worthy differences from the M1:

Dual radio that auto switches. When using a 2.4-only amp/booster, you have to manually set this in Go4 for every single flight.

The M2 will do a heavy load auto land when using dual external batteries. The only work around is constant forward flight.

The M2 has 1080p live video which is default. This shortens the radio range, disable HD live video and the M2 has nearly the same radio range as the M1.
Lolo/Skyninja, please pile on here for any significant M1/M2 differences I missed to get dirtybum up to speed.

Thanks Bbubba, no need to rehash, thanks lolo/skyninj, i'll figure it out in due time. The answers about auto vs 2.4 were helpful.
Ive been burning my eyes from post #1 on til 500. (And not just skimming)
If all my ?'s arent answered by the last 200 posts I'll ask ya'll.

Btw, thankyou Pablo for the shoutout early in the thread

I am submitting this one for STOCK SUICIDE CLASS. no mods/additions of any kinds. up to date software/firmware, etc on standard ios device.

i flew to the turn around point without moving from my initiall ocation, buti did move after that, to collect the drone (and have as much current location info as possible- i 98% 'human' landed it)

had i known these boards existed, i wouldve chosen a different area to fly and gone for absolute max range(s). next time(s) :)

I'm sure it's in the thread here, so excuse the question that's already answered, what is the max distance anyone has reached here with stock controller, I've read half the thread and noticed a lot of people using modded controllers. I never modded my controller on Mavic one and never found hiccup out to 50,000.
CyberNate’s 57,893 is the longest flight I know of using the stock controller. The only mods he was using was a battery clip and two MS4000 batteries.

There is a 55,000 feet minimum for the suicide class leaderboard. You were close, give it another go and you should easily get this.

Ok, thanks.

I’m just testing for stock capabilities of the drones video feed, so I don’t technically qualify for this class.

Can we have a ‘simonr23 participation award/wants to lose his drone’ class ;)

In all these top scores, do you have to have full video signal still? Can people just fly using the lcd screen on the controller?

I have a score for around 6th/7th on stock class, but it’s from my house and I don’t want my exact location known. Anyway around this?(besides doing again somewhere else)

Sorry, an airdata share is required for consideration and it will reveal your physical location on google maps.

Yes, every flight on all the leaderboards maintain full video and telemetry connectivity during the entire flight.

lolo780 It was a serious question, it's an open forum and there is this large thread here that appears to be promoting illegal activity...I was hoping I have got this wrong somehow and someone could explain.

I apologise in advance if I'm missing the point I have not read the whole thread, but if I could come to this conclusion I am sure others could also.
please educate me.

@Aumoe
@mlash
And the rest of you in the 10 mile club, I watched some of your videos I noticed it appeared that most of you were flying with a tail wind at your back assisting you on the way out but pushing in your face on the way home. Is that what the kids are doing these days? Because that never was the old-school theory. I've specifically skipped flying on good days just because the wind wasn't at my back on the way out, mainly because I wanted the shove on the way back. Even noticed a few sport mode flights the entire time.
