Thread: DJI Phantom (RTF)

  1. #1

    DJI Phantom (RTF)

    Bought a DJI Phantom from RP innovations a few weeks back for SGD 930. Today I realized that SingaporeHobby are selling it for SGD864.50! Feel ripped off!:-( Not blaming anyone, I should have checked prices at other places. For otheres who're thinking of buying this, SingaporeHobby give a better deal.
    p.s:-Am not affiliated with any shops. Just a quadcopter beginner getting my feet wet:-(

    Oops! Spoke to Singapore Hoby. SGD 864.5 is without GST, so incl GST it comes to SGD 925. About the same. Feeling better already
    Thanks feudallordcult

    Hi cruiser73, are you bringing your new DJI Phantom along for the night flying at Buangkok tonight ?

    I'd really like to see this new quad in action.

    You know what quad, I haven't even set it up. Waiting on my PC (laptop). All my 3 comps at home are macs. Don't want to try Parallels/VM/bootcamp as I use my Macs for work. Will get a laptop, set it up properly and bring it to one of the sessions.

    I bought mine from zone5hobby for $900 inclusive of GST.

    Video of first flight



    Bought a spare battery yesterday from Singahobby..
    Huayin Scorpion 3S 2200MAH 65+C w XT60 connector and soldered to it. ($52.90 + $2.90 + $10) (battery compartment cannot close due to the size)
    Bought a prop balancer too...$23

    Total spent on the above $95 inclusive of GST.

    Spent yesterday evening learning and trying to balance the props by using scotch tape.

    Went for a lunch time flight just now at CD field....and crashed during landing cos i panicked when i saw the red led blinking indicating 1st battery warning.

    I would like to join this evening if the weather permits cos its' raining now....

    Hi Guile,

    If you are flying at that field again, I would like to join you. I live nearby the field.

    Cheers,

    My second flight which I took the other day and had a hard landing around the 9.55 min mark.



    Met up with quadflyer that night to do some night flying at Buangkok field. Though there was only 2-3 of us and a slight drizzle at the beginning, we still had fun and I had a chance to experience night flying and using only the LED lights of the Phantom to guide my orientation.

    It was pretty cool and I would definitely like to do it again. Next couple of days gonna be busy again....dunno when I will be free to fly again.

    I will put up the video of the night flight next time when I'm free.
