Thanks guys. It's a ton of fun for sure.
DJI state 28 minutes flight time but that's in optimal conditions. From what I have seen on youtube 22 to 25 minutes is the real world figure. More batteries on the shopping list.

Tath I have seen a guy drive 12 miles from his mate who had the controller. He started it up and flew it back towards himself over a bay so nothing to block the signal. It flew just over 12 miles before the battery died. Not too shabby at all. My weak signal was because I was behind trees and over a small hill.... line of site. The software restricts it to 120 metres altitude as that is the Australian law. I have seen them way up in the clouds though.

Put it in sport mode and it will do 72 Kph.

I had it at 120 metres over my house this morning.....

I knew there is a height restriction.
Range and flight time is critical to me.
Spending $600.00 and only having a flight time of
5 to 10 minutes is not on.
Very handy for checking out say a track in the bush before
continuing is one of the reasons I can think of.
Line of sight restrictions taken into account of course.
OK. Added to the bucket list. LOL

No doubt the software can be hacked, and drone modded to be awesomer. Can it carry extra weight?

I saw a guy doing lifting tests. It will lift about 1 kilo. To change the height limitation is just a couple of clicks on the app. It does have a sport mode. Disables some of the avoidance systems but gives better performance.

Top spot for a swing mate, nice vid.

When I was driving through the back roads of the Barringtons near Tomalla, I stopped on a bridge to say G'day to a couple I saw swimming, they gave me a dirty look, it was only after that I realised they were totally starkers, hahaha. smile A lot of those swimming holes are absolutely pristine.

The creeks and rivers of the Barringtons are pristine. So close to their point of origin.

Nice vid Rod, love the drone work, certainly adds a different perspective than most detecting vids. Well done.
