Hot tip for cobwebs stopping the anemometer
« on: July 21, 2021, 05:55:23 AM »
We've probably all suffered from this time to time...
If you have a drone or know someone with one, the downdraft from it will get it spinning again.

I have the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and the Mavic mini 2 and they both do the job...

Just thought I would share :)
Kind regards

That is a nice share.  [tup]

I have a couple 450 Quads with Here installed. Could do a very precise hover.

No probs, my mini 2aibt very stable when trying to be over something, but it does the job if I am careful and ready with the controls, the p4p is great and very precise, the sensors make a difference for sure. Itsjust more of a faff usi g it do just this purpose, the mini 2 is just easier :)

Here ya go, all 17+ minutes of it, it was one hell of a stubborn single strand, I even clipped the props on the vane at one point, the DJI Mini 2 is not the most stable drone, I was fighting it all the time, it even moved over 2m away at one point, the bottom sensors dont help
