    replacement dji cendance antenna ?

    Both. Beside that, I've never heard about any successful antenna mods for Cendence RC. Once you decide to experiment with such, you're basically on your own with expensive set of equipment, warranty or insurance wise. However, DJI Patch Antenna may be a temporary solution at ranges within true...

    replacement dji cendance antenna ?

    Nope, and wouldn't recommend experimenting with not DJI branded antennas of any kind. Best bet is to open the repair ticket with DJI, unfortunately ...

    Best camera/lens for stills

    Wow, that was a bucket of ice-cold water over my head :D! For my defence, the day I shot this pano was particularly bright and crispy, almost no haze in the air. Sky was indeed deep blue, white clouds clearly defined and very contrasty, almost unreal. I usually script-process my DNG pano images...

    My Inspire 2 crashed. Thoughts on firmware...

    Thing is that some of these "new-ish" parts may not cooperate well with old, outdated firmware. Most likely they'll be forced to update the FW in order to make your bird fully functional. To be honest it'll be unfair to blame them for this. That said, I had only good experience with Californian...

    My Inspire 2 crashed. Thoughts on firmware...

    Who's repairing your bird? If that's DJI's facility, you'll pretty much get back different, refurbished Inspire with who knows what FW version. The only reason to consider FW update is compatibility with recent app versions and devices. Otherwise, once the cause of malfunctioning is determined...

    Really disappointed I2 range...

    Like The Editor said, it's quite normal when there's an obstacle between AC and RC. I bet you'll get a decent range while maintaining LOS. Usually the higher you fly, the better transmission will happen. Yesterday I've made 5 km flight one way in a remote mountain valley, but there was nothing...

    Using the DJI Copilot Boss? Let me ask you a question...

    It's faster, period. How much faster? I can't tell you because it depends. Is it worth the extra cost? I can't tell you, because I don't know your expectations ...:)

    Using the DJI Copilot Boss? Let me ask you a question...

    Yes, but transfer speed via TB3 protocol is also highly dependent on receiving storage properties (speed). As an example, 520GB of DNG footage dumped to G-Raid Studio external drive via MacBook Pro is taking approx. 30 min. Here, at least :) ...

    Nitecore DPE1, someone has it?

    Once again ...RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, EVERYBODY!!! This is the craziest idea I've seen, ever. Total BS ...

    Force PRO

    I can't see what Force Pro will do better than Cendence? Whatever, in current climate of marketing confusion and other issues DJI is struggling with I wouldn't count on it's compatibility with Inspire 2 anytime soon, if anytime at all ...

    I just used only few examples of unrelated exam topics, you add few other. One of the funniest questions was about the time required to neutralize a bottle of Jack D before flight. The proper answer is 12 hrs ... No, seriously! I think Transport Canada authorities simply copied the poll of exam...

    I've just passed Basic UAV Pilot Certificate exam (not Advanced for commercial operators), as required by new Canadian rules. I was under impression that after over 5 years of experience flying various DJI quads (with M200 at top of my equipment list) and 2 separate ground school sessions I'll...

    I2 hitting 2 miles

    Agree 100%, Donnie. And that's exactly what I've said. VLOS or not, there are places out there impossible to reach otherwise, where I want to set my camera on. And that's the only reason why I invested 35K in equipment. I will hesitate to fly BVLOS around Manhattan, but in remote wilderness...
