    Went out to fly her for the first time today, and almost lost her she was hovering over my head and I did not know. The video got compressed sorry about the quality.
    Better quality on YouTube

    Luck you - direct overhead flying is a no-no - due to poor or lost signal from the RC and Phantom (antennae's pointing out ward and away, not straight up for overhead flight)! If you lose signal directly overhead the bird will go into RTH and you might panic wondering what is happening!

    Glad all went well for you - so, how did you enjoy the first flight?
