How the heck did you end up here?

Weather Underground PWS KWAPORTA129

Finally bought a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone online.
First one I received had a bad battery. No response of any kind when you press the "on" button. No response to charger connection either.

So, as I waited out the replacedment process I ordered up some accessories.
So much for the great price I got on my origional order.

The spare battery I ordered behaved normally to the button press and proved the charger worked.
I immediatly sent the bad kit back and continued to wait for the replacement Phantom.
That's right, they could not replace just the defective battery, everything had to go back.
For a product in the $800 range you might think......

I forgot to hit the record button on the first flight...
So, here is the first flight with the video turned on: DJI_0004.m4v (114 Mb)

I'm wearing a motorcycle helmet with a GoPro on it so I can review my side of the interaction.
Maybe get some brilliant commentary to superimpose later.
On this one I forgot to turn the GoPro onto record... DJI_0006.m4v (45 Mb)

What ever.

Maybe next time.

  • I am a seasoned IT Systems guy with extensive experience in the management, support, and installation of software, hardware, and network systems in distributed heterogeneous environments.
  • Don't you love the jargon?

    For those of you with a life, that means I play well with all kinds of computers. Everything from mainframes to home style personal computers, all hooked together, running all kinds of operating systems.

    It has narrowed down in the last few years to working with various flavors of:

  • If you are someone I know and you end up in North Seattle be sure to say hi.
  • If you're not in the area, drop me a note.
