    This is a video I have been working on that I have received some positive feedback on. I thought I would share it with the forum.

    I think I can answer these questions without giving away too many secrets.

    First, the range was expanded by attaching the controller antenna leads to an old HAM radio antenna system I had laying around. That in conjunction with a gap I discovered in the earths magnetic field that eliminated almost all radio interference.

    Battery life was a little more difficult to work out. But basically I converted the DJI pack into a miniature nuclear power plant. The real difficulty was fitting it into the DJI battery pack itself.

    The real problem that needed to be solved was just how to get the props to actually work without any atmosphere. But that remains a secret at this time.

    I hope I don't sound like a prick, because I don't mean to. But I wish you wouldn't hijack my posting. If you have a video to display, just start your own posting.
