  1. Nice Video, I Just lost my new drone. Dew to a fly Away Dji naza m lite and it just shot up in the air when arming and still havent recived it! had no control

  2. The WORLD'S BEST mosquito repellent is vitamin B12. Just OD on B12 at least 12 hours before exposure. The excess B12 your body can't use gets excreted out through your sweat glands and make you UNDESIRABLE to mosquitos. They won't even light on you, let alone bite. Try it, you'll like it.

  3. That is not a helicopter !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is a X8 coaxial octocopter! 8 motors, with coaxial motors and in X4 arrangement! Stop staying Helicopter!!!!! Also if you know you are going to stay in the middle of rain forest! Pls wear long sleeve and long trousers! No matter how thin the clothing!

  4. I don't understand why spending $15,000 for a drone when a $2000 drone with 4k camera on a gimble could take the same film?. No doubt the more expensive the better but would be good to compare the quality.
    I nearly lost one of my drones after taking off without a GPS fix. It was drifting away until a spec on the horizon. Like people say. Keep your cool and don't panic when a flyaway happens…

  5. Man, that's an extremely lucky outcome! Assuming mode 2 as you mentioned lowering the throttle and the X8 starting dropping, why on earth didn't you raise throttle to gain height over the canopy and activate failsafe to bring it back above the take-off zone where you could have a better chance of bringing it back? Eh, irrelevant now I guess as it was years ago, but good to see you guys got your copter back! 🙂

  6. Why keep it airborne when you realized you had no directional control? Why not cut your losses and at least lower the throttle while you have a visual on the aircraft? Also why in gods name did this drone cost 15k?? What a joke price.

  7. I suggest switching to a different radio frequency for your transmitter and receiver 2.4 ghz is good for line of sight. Dragon link has a module for Spektrum using the trainer port. The lower the frequency usually the better. Been reading about people using 72mhz as well Dragon link is 1.3 ghz. I still need to get my ham license and am not sure about the laws but I know using a 2.4 ghz system in heavy tree canopy you are going to have problems.

  8. That's crazy! I just got my Hubsan mini-drone yesterday and I was getting bummed thinking about losing $85 but $15K…I would still be crying over that! Big UPS to you. One day I'll get into CCU.

  9. first I want to say this guy's are awesome. …. but can someone please tell what makes this drone 15k… I'm new to aerial filming and I just want to do it as a hobby but I DO NOT see any shot on this video that I can't do with my $999.99 yuneec q500 4k???

  11. If u can't get GPS lock dont fly….its that simple. If you had GPS you could've done a RTH but seriously flying in such a dense place is stupid & you sir are a STUPID pilot

  12. Geez man it wasnt my aircraft and im all tense watching the video! What a relief that the aircraft survive!! good look dudes

    A question, what caused the transmitter throttle stick to broke?

  13. Why on earth would you use a Spektrum TX on something so expensive. Might as well have ordered something off Hobbyking. There's a reason Hollywood only trusts Futaba.
