About 40-minutes of flight today, 3 batteries, moderate to high winds. No problems.

 About 10-flights over the past two weeks, no issues, no crashes, no random flights. The only thing was that the camera wasn't charged, so only limited video...

Ghost Drone Aerial Plus
3x batteries
iOS App with the Bluetooth G-Box (I also have an i8 controller)
Ehang HD Camera

Modifications:
Velcro to hold the battery door shut
Zip-ties to hold the gimble mount together

Hi All,

Had a "Pilot Error" crash the other day. Didn't really do any damage to my Ghost Drone or Gimbal, but I did lose one of the rubber connecting pieces that connects the Gimbal to the Drone. Any thoughts on getting another? I did send an email to support@ehang.com(it was just now, so I'm not expecting an immediate answer.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is anyone taking any precautions to prevent this? I was thinking a loose zip-tie or a small bolt with a locking nut. Thoughts?

Hi! I recently received the GHOST i8 Remote Controller. I can get it to work in "manual" mode with no problem, but it doesn't do anything but the drone does nothing but flash in GPS mode. The box for the controller did have the parts in the picture below, but nothing about how to install. I assume the two are related. Anyone have an idea??

First flight with the camera installed. Moderate wind and a little vibration, but otherwise okay. The main battery door popped-open (anyone have a suggestion on that?)... also, anyone know how to set the date/time on the chip so the files are time-stamped properly? Two other videos on my YouTube channel.

My stats:
Ghost-Drone Aerial Plus
Ghost camera
iOS G-Box

First flight was a success!!  Took a while to figure out how to get it to initialize and unlock, but once I did, all was good. Running the iOS version and I did the firmware update to the drone.  The only thing that didn't seem to be working properly was "follow me" mode, but I had limited space to try it.

Regarding battery %, is it normal to have it reporting a low battery percentage (like under 18%), then after you land the % will rise again? Is this a function of how the LiPO batteries work (maybe it cools a bit and then will "come back". 

So, as suggested, first few flights will be just the basic drone, then I'll put the camera on. Looking forward to that. Will keep you posted!
