DJI Flame Wheel ARF Drone 4
1 Attachment(s)
If you are wondering about flying a drone, well it is fun and not hard to do.
There are several good places to get drones but be sure of what your buying. Getting one from DJI is probably the mostn reliable with good on line information and good phone support.
The DJI ARF kits that are available , both 4 & 6 blade, are good Drones and not hard to build. If you can solder a simple connection you can build the drone.
However there is one catch to this and that is programing the drone. There are a couple of shops out there that are offering to do this for you but they want an arm & leg to do it.
One thing I like about buying the ARF DJI kit is that you can use your own TX & RX, 6 to 8 Channels are required depending whether you want to have a gimbal and camer hook or or just fly the drone.
So here is my offer to anyone who wants to get a do-it-yourself drone. I can help you set up your TX and RX If you are using a Specktrum TX & RX, with programing and wiring. I also can program the drone for you but that requires me to have it in hand to do that. I have all the software in my CPU to do that for you at far less then others are charging.

Can you define "drone" for me. Why is this a drone rather than an RC quad copter. I don't have any experience with these things.

AEAJR, I think in this case, 'drone' is the term attached to an item you wish to sell more of by putting a label on that people are fanatically fascinated with so you can make more money. :D :rolleyes: ;)

LOL! It just dawned on me. I was reading the lawyer back-and-forth stuff between Trappy and the FAA regarding his $10,000 fine for flying his "drone" in an unsafe manner, and considering one of the main arguments of this case is whether his vehicle was a drone or model aircraft, I wonder why on earth anyone would attach the word 'drone' on any of their products?! I guess the public hasn't caught on yet.

I was thinking the same thing. The LAST thing I would want someone to believe is that I am flying a Drone.

Let the police, the feds and my Mom come raining down on me for flying a Drone.

I fly radio controlled model aircraft. THAT is why I wanted to understand this Drone term and why anyone would want to use it.
