    I say almost because it will be next week before my P2 arrives.My story is I bought a cheap little video drone from Wal-Mart last week. I had a blast with it. It was taken out of the air by a Hawk and dropped in a field. After retrieving it the wind I noticed was a real bad enemy. Even a light wind. I live near the beach and video's of the beach was always my future plan so I did some research on different drones and here I am. As a starter drone to get my feet wet . I chose the 2 because of the price and there is no way I am spending a grand on my first one just to watch it fly away over the ocean forever. Anyway. I am excited to be getting into this and hope for years of enjoyment in my new hobby!!!

    Hello [​IMG]

    Welcome to the forum and the addiction er hobby :)

    Be sure to find out about any Flight Restrictions over the beach area. They are more common that most people think.
