Why I sent my Insta360 One R back

With these kinds of reviews I will not make any money or get many review items offered but they will have the most benefit for you - and these honest reivews are quite rare on tha Netz ;)

Weight: Core: 42gr | 4k/360 lens: 42gr | Battery base: 34gr = 118gr + Frame: 52gr = Total weight: 170gr ●▬▬▬LINKS▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬● Resolution comparison in Excel (PDF) http://bit.ly/2NEtwOx

►Sector5 flight: this is your typical insta cam on a drone (here my first try actually). of course the insta is heavier and larger than a gopro7, stabilization is great, possibilities are awesome with 360! but this wears off faster than you think and I ended up with just 2 flights on my drone in 3 months. ►Jet Chase: The next day I was eager to chase my friends on the field. Normally I try hard to have the object I wanna chase in the center of my DJI cam - so the gopro would also record it. With the 360 cam you dont have to care about aiming the shot - because you can turn the sphere in post production and look almost anywhere. You just have to bring your copter close enough to the aciton. And here's the downside of the insta: if I'm not REALLY close, I have to zoom in quite a bit, else the JET is just a DOT. Zoomed in this quickly degrades to 720p or lower of resolution... ►Hiking: Another use for this cam, no drone used - just a longer selfie stick in your backpack and you get a funny looking 3rd person view - which you can - again - look around freely in post production. This is especially fun when you dont have to much time for framing the shot while in the action. Also the 360 on a longer stick makes for nice scenes if you're high up and dont have a drone. attention - dont watch this if you have vertigo :) ►Gopro7 vs Insta4k Module: Since they basically give you the "normal" 4k cam module for free - you will buy it. The modularity is part of the appeal, right? But even tho the insta is really sharp (do we want maximum sharpness?) the Gopros video was much more pleasing to watch! Gopro just deals so much better with the jello vibrations from my copter...

Long flighttimes on any copter? (5" 6S copters with 5000mah LION pack)


Here I tried 2 of my fav copters from this year (Sector5 and Emax HawkPro) with a 5000mah 4cell LION pack (304gr). Was curious about the flighttime I could achieve with a standard copter setup - and how it would fly (considering both are designed for 6S LIPO power). Now I got 3 other Packs from ZOHD as well (7000mah 4cell, 3500mah 4cell and a 3500mah 3cell). I'm kinda curious how the 2 3500mah packs will do on the Chimera4. 3s lightweight vs 4s a bit heavy. Wouldnt be surprised to see similar flighttimes - even tho the 4cell pack has 25% more WH in the tank...

DJI FPV Antenna-tests

New test setup: DJI Airunit on Tripod moving away (2.3km) with DJI Goggles and compare achived BITRATES.
I tested with 2 different powersettings (25 and 200mw) and was surprised that even with Stock antennas you could get a connection at 2.3km thru the fog! - good line of sight (low fresnell zone intersection) - big time fog!!! (reduces range about 50%?) - AirUnit got constant 12v power (thru powersupply which was switchable) - Maple Wireless L+RHCP TX Antennas (look pretty similar to DJI Stock) Tested antennas (use the jumpmarks to find what you're curious for): MapleWireless, Deathray 3Turn, 7Turn DJI Stock, TrueRC Singularity, Foxeer Lollipop ►NEW!: iFlight ChrystalHD https://bit.ly/2ILRKDT

MapleWireless: 4 patches for DJI with left+right polarization? Does it help? How much better do they work, when you use L+R on the copter? I also compare Stock vs. TrueRC Singularity vs Foxeer Lollipop. To do such tests yourself, just use my little script to convert SRT files into excel understandable format, then use my Excel-Sheet to import those and get nice charts automatically. It's what I used here, if you do compareable flights the data can be pretty accurate!

How every afterwork flightsession should be... (Ride & Fly #4)

Early September, weather was fine and sunlight available after office hours (pure luxury). This was the best ride & fly adventure so far - hope you like the balance. Riding the bike is actually quite similar to flying the drone (if you try hard enough, you can even get airborne for some extent :)

What is the iFlight Bumblebee good for?


I was tempted by this rugged drone (cinewhoop), because it is well protected against some bad "mid-air-descisions", it invites you to explore the woods deeper, with DJI FPV you can! Paired with a decent antenna I got really far. I also liked the idea of using 6cell packs on such a whoop. I dont have similar 4S copters (cinestyle) but I imagine they're quite sluggish and barely keep themselfes in the air - so compared to them this is quite agile. Just don't compare it to a freestyle drone (like I did) - here they feel slow. Efficiency is not great, 5mins flighttimes with 6S 1300mah. Weight: Copter: 330gr GP-Mount: 11gr typical 6S 1300mah ~ 220gr Please 👍 and 🔔 thanks ;-) it helps a lot! Find many links and infos further down! Banggood sent me this product for free to review it.
