Many thanks for setting this up Des. It will be most helpful to everyone once we all receive our units. I'm looking forward to sharing experiences with everyone else once mine arrives. I'm told it will ship next week. Fingers crossed! Cheers/Larry
Welcome Larry, I am busy populating some of the boards with info and will post the issues that I have encounted shortly. If there is anything that you think could be better then let me know and lets make this forum better.
Some things may not be possible without me purchasing extra forum upgrades.
Thank you,..I have had nothing but headaches with the Auto I purchased through Kickstarter,....gimbal shakes like CRAZY,....can't update firmware???,.....i am hoping this forum will help me actually get the thing filming something that doesn't make you motion sick to watch, (FAR from good/quality footage). I've got it up and flying,...balanced the props,...bird flies smooth?,...while Gimbal shakes like mad????
THANK YOU FOR THIS FORUM,......you are my only hope
Hi iguanadave, I have had a couple of issues with mine but not to bad. not really used mine for filming yet as my FPV wont work beyond 50 Meters. Had the camera attached a few times and even in high winds the gimbal seems to keep it level, apart from high speed where there seems to be a lot of vibration in the drone which transfers into the gimbal.
Start up a new thread in the appropriate discussion board and see what other users have to say. Its only early days with the forum and hopefully more will join and share how they have rectified there problems.
Hi rod, I got the auto from kickstarter, not used the auto features yet.

genep: I have a Splash Drone 3 and cannot get Bluetooth to connect. Also, at a loss as to where shutter button is located. Videos seem to be on as soon as the toggle is switched, but photo toggle does nothing. Anybody have a clue about these problems?

drblack88: Would it be a better option to buy a different drone and try to semi water resistant it with the assortment of sprays and silicon coatings or is the splash drone really not as bad as I have heard?

drblack88: Hi I am considering buying the splash drone as I am always near water and right away the first job I have for the drone is a location that rains 345 days a year. But there is so much I read about how bad these drones are. should I but one?
