    Love the forum. I bought the Phantom 3 standard and am pretty excited. To be honest, its nerve racking as well because its an expensive toy and seems complicated. There is a lot I still need to learn. I wasn't aware of the CSC thing before buying but after reading the manual, that scares me even more! I could see someone accidentally doing that motion in flight and the **** thing come crashing down. Not sure what that function is for and thought it would be a little harder to accomplish. Ill just make sure I am careful.

    Saw it for $499 today at Best Buy. I had a coupon for Target and found out they would price match. With the 20% off coupon, got it for $399 out the door. Not to bad. Hopefully its a fun hobby

    Welcome to the forum and you got a great price !!
    Don't be to concerned with doing a CSC while flying as it's just not no reason for that to happen unless you do it on purpose .
    Yes it's fun and fly safe and just take it slow and you will be fine :)

    Spent last night read manuals and watching tutorials. Took the phantom out for its first flight today around my house and neighborhood. It flew so well.

    Edited a few clips from the flight. Can't wait to do more locations and videos.
