    Sometimes you just have to practice. Flying close to ground is bad and crash...total bunk..I was using my new GoPro Session on my ball cap and had a good time. You don't realize how much you move your head while flying.

    Lol, I do the same thing with my Hero 4. A bit heavier but I know where your coming from. I had to make adjustments a few times, but it is cool when you edit the video from both into one. More perspective. That is if you have a camera on the drone as well.:cool:

    If I had a camera on the Phantom I would feel I have to go slow and steady. Sometimes you just want to go a little nuts and hone your flying skills.

    Agreed. Practice makes perfect. When your ready to start doing some action scenes, then that going fast and nutty will pay off. LOL!:D

    I have always flown planes. As a kid it was control line. In 1989 started up again and got into RC. After the trainer got into scale type planes. Not as forgiving and easy to fly. I wanted to fly the plane like it should be flown to be realistic. Flying a J3 Cub like a jet because you have a large engine was not what I wanted to do. Anyone can take a plane off and get it into the air. Get it back down and do that perfect scale like landing or take off is something else. I started the rc stuff after getting my pilot certificate in my C150. So I was ...mentally ...in that rc plane. Hitting that spot landing was great. I flew the plane. It didn't fly me.
