DJI Spark – Flying Via WiFi Stinks!

Check It Out! In this episode we will be flying the DJI Spark with Litchi via WiFi and why Litchi you ask? While the DJI Go4 app kept crashing! So I switched devices and application (even on the Lenvo Tab the DJI Go 4 App kept crashing). Now I have to tell you, the DJI spark will be going on eBay if I have to fly like this as WiFI sucks compared to OTG and appears DJI has changed the Go 4 App as now there is an entry menu after go fly!

Please let me know in the comments if you are see the same issues with your DJI Spark! Also is OTG still working for you?

DJI Mavic Pro – First Flight and its SUPER Cold!

Check It Out! In this episode we will be taking the DJI Mavic Pro for its first flight as here in Michigan we were having a heat wave at 15 deg(f) since the prior days were -4deg(f) I had to take what I could get to fly this thing as it was just calling my name saying “FLY ME”! Note the screen issue you hear me talk about was due to the ambient light sensor being covered by the controller. I also I don’t talk too much as it was cold and I was trying to keep the bird out of the drink!

NOTE! Here is the link (goo.gl/KKMgLg ) to the DJI store on eBay where I purchased this, however they have now raised the price from $699 to $749 as I post this 🙁 However still a pretty good deal if your in the market or have a limited amount of Christmas cash to spend…

Yuneec Typhoon H – First Ice Flight As Hyperlapse!

Check It Out! In this episode we will be taking the Yuneec Typhoon H up an out of the cold blue ice of Lake Huron to see how she does as a snow bird (ice bird?) on this cold winters day. This is also the first flight with the CPL filter and noticed some camera issues so not sure if it was the cold or the filter creating jitter issues in the camera so we are going to have to do some more testing! Also the battery after 4 Spark flights and the 25deg (f) Michigan weather is starting to fail so decided to do a hyperlapse! So lets fly!

3DR Solo – Flying SJCAM 360 Camera for the First Time!

Check It Out! In this episode we will be flying the SJCAM 360+ camera on the 3DR Solo for the first time!

Here is the link to the 360deg version of the flight: youtu.be/9erHu5vWWaI

Best 360 Deg Editor: ift.tt/2ujPCLJ

Amazing SJCAM 360+: ift.tt/2kNG44x

Heads Up Flight Display: ift.tt/2kNWBoj

Important Note: When I mounted this camera on the Solo it was mounted horizontally (one lens facing down, the other up) so it would fit underneath the Solo without leg modification, this was a bad idea. While the PC (there is also a Mac version too) transcoding program allows for this orientation it expects that the camera will remain “still” in that plane of view. However it obviously can not so the vibration created stitching issues between the two cameras (in effect this camera is really two see unboxing video: youtu.be/zqsgtSJ5GRQ ) and the transcoding/stitching software joins the two images. So by mounting the camera vertically (even if upside down) the stitching planes of the two cameras will remain matched because they will move together and you will get better results.

Depth of field note: A lot of folks ask about the softness of the image, in other words the distance is out of focus or “soft” and the simplified explanation for this is because of the “depth of field” or what is more commonly understood as F-Stop. As a high f-stop means that most of objects in frame no matter the distance will remain “in” focus, however with a 360 degree camera, to achieve the affect the lens provide an incredibly low “effective” F-Stop meaning things closer to the camera will be in focus and those further away start to progressively blur which is referred to as “bokeh” effect. It like you can your cake, you just can’t eat it
