This is a feature I thought was kinda cool....
This vid was done without the realsense tech and with older firmware.....
I get that. I've flown one like yours and it is really easy. You will probably do fine.
I started on cheap Syma 5's and 8's, so learned stick flying early. Only had problems with the Phantom once (must have been some kind of interference), but was glad I understood manual flying at that point.
Will love hearing about your experiences. Hope they are every bit as positive as mine have been.
I'm Betting you will love it.
Best of luck
I've had several cheaper ones. A word of advice if I may: Make certain this 1000 dollar drone you buy has GPS with return home function. It's very easy to become disoriented flying one that gets too far away and you can no longer tell which way it's pointing. By which way it's pointing I mean frontward or backward. If you can't tell that it has rotated and is no longer oriented the way you think it is, it's very easy to lose it. The return feature makes it hard to lose.
Agreed, one of the best functions on these is the return home.
I’ve watched several hours of vids before pulling the trigger on this one. lol
One of the vids showed 3 ways of regaining control. This will be my first time flying a drone, and I’m feeling confident.
Here’s the vid I was talking about, miketx .....
I’ll be sure to post some videos after I’ve had time to learn more.
After talking with a couple of drone owners, I’m now thinking it’ll be a good idea to have something like this before I start flying.....
The one guy lost his a few weeks ago.
