    As I stated in another thread, I had my maiden flight of my new P2V+ yesterday and it was a huge success :D

    I had her in the air for a total of 14:01 (until the battery alarm went off) with a smooth take off and landing, as you can see by the attached video I still have a long way to go on the "smoothness" of the control while filming but I will chalk that up to being excited on my first flight.

    I have edited the attached video as the first 6 min the camera was pointing down at the grass field, yawn, but you can see where I figured that out ;)

    I only took it up 104M as I was sooooo nervous after reading all the horror stories on here but I will push it as I get more confident.

    Overall I am very happy with my first flight and as I said earlier, I couldn't wipe the smile off my face :D .

    Super exited to see how easy it was to fly... look forward to lots of fun with her.

    You can watch all the "excitement" here

    Congrats on your maiden flight. Nice video. Looks like you have a lot of lake to explore!

    Nice!

    Thats pretty brave to fly her over water on your maiden voyage :shock:

    It's nice to see people sharing some positives, but feel bad for the people who have had big losses.
