Those Phantoms are great - no use for astronomy mind :o


Gaz has had a few of these. They're great for my other hobby of photographing archaeological sites - maybe Gaz will post some pictures.


Enjoy, Martin

I sold the advanced now and bought the the pro for the better camera very happy with the out come and performance with it. I have tried helicopters before but could not get the hang of it.
