    Maybe a weird question, but I always wonder why people do things they do.
    Why did you buy a quadcopter (just fun, hobby, work related etc.)?
    I bought mine for fun and photography, but more so as an education tool to learn how to operate in a 3-dimensional world while being guided by a 2-dimensional screen.

    I honestly just purchased mines. Haven't even flown it yet but I heard about the parrot disco fixed wing drone coming out later this year and decided it was time to get into the hobby. I wasn't really interested In a quad copter but since it's going to be a while I figured this would last me till then. I'm more interested in just seeing different parts of the world from above and maybe getting into fpv flying more.

    Went with a P3S for photography and stability related reasons. This a completely different animal than the Tarantula X6 with Xiaomi Yi cam that I used to fly.
    First post, BTW. Hi.

    I bought for photography reasons mainly but also because I just wanted to fly one of these for a while now.

    I got tired of $20 eBay helicopters and bought a P1 last year just for fun. Then got bored quick but realized how much I was into aerial pics. Now I'm really getting into the pic/video side of things. I don't care as much about zooming around anymore.
