It was a pretty calm evening so I thought I'd try to beat my previous record of just over 2500m. I'd call this a success. I landed with 26% battery remaining after a 6,900m (just over 4 miles) The Inspire behaved itself superbly.
3300 meters is nothing to sneeze at.
Wish you overlaid some Dashware gauges so we can verify actual distances flown by comparing video footage to Google Maps satellite imagery.
I assume this was only possible because of FPVLR antennas?
Over houses, cars, streets, people and out of line of sight. There it has been said. Sweet video.
I've heard that FPVLR antennas will allow a solid FPV signal out to 4 miles, maybe a little more.
Where do you live ?? I bet we police it ..cause we police the world.Lol, I think the difference is that I don't live in a police state. At the furthest extent of this flight I was aware that about 400 metres to the right of the aircraft was the 4km no-fly zone from the local airport. In New Zealand it is legal to fly over houses, cars and roads as long as you avoid them by 50 metres which I clearly did.
I choose to abide by the spirit of the law, not necessarily the letter of the law.
I'm sure they will but you then start running the risk of flying beyond the capability of your battery. To reach 4 miles (6.43kms) in one direction you then need to be able to turn around and get home. This is a total flight range of 8 miles or 12.8kms. It would be fair to assume that you will have a slight tail wind in one direction and a slight head wind in the other which you need to factor in too. You would need to reduce your critical battery levels down to zero and hope like hell that you don't miscalculate your wind speeds.
