Hi guys I've been spending a lot of time reading up recently about the phantom as I'm intending to buy one in the next few weeks as a 40th birthday present for myself with money I'm getting. I'm really into photography and have always been a huge RC fan, so the 2 things gel perfectly for me in buying this, and I'm very excited about intending to buy one. I currently have a modified Parrot AR2 drone, which is great fun, but is basically a glorified toy and no use for proper video or aerial photography unlike the phantom. But I worry a bit after a lot of discussions I've read about flyaway phantoms, or ones that just drop out of the sky it seems. Really really really want one, but I'm a little scared of the prospect of losing it + expensive gimbal + gopro, through no real fault of my own. If it's pilot error I can accept that, but it seems people lose these kites despite not doing anything wrong. Or at least that's the impression I've picked up, and am hoping you guys can set me straight and reassure me that this isn't really likely to happen at all? I realise no-one can guarantee a failure free machine - things don't work like that of course, but what I'm looking for is a little bit of perspective to put in place some rationale on how common these sort of issues might be in reality, and whether I do need to worry or am just reading scare stories etc. I hope that doesn't sound negative - it's not intended to but I'm just wanting to get some factual input on things like whether there are any currently known issues that could cause such scenarios, outside of me doing something dumb as a pilot (like flying next to power lines, taking off without a lock on the satellites, launching with a nearly flat battery etc). Appreciate your objective input on this guys, and hopefully in a few weeks I will be a fellow pilot getting a lot of enjoyment from my new machine. Thanks very much!
