    Hey thanks, i think the sheer fact thats its so expensive will limit my stupidity to the minimum.
    just gonna fly it carefully and get some cool pics.

    Sounds good. At least flying over a frozen lake it will not get wet. Enjoy winter in Min-a-snow-ta. :)
    Welcome and enjoy.

    You'd be surprised how many noobs don't do that and pay the ultimate price as they watch their expensive toy crash or fly away. :oops:

    I didnt do anything the first 2 weeks I owned my Vision+ except start up the motors and look at the LEDs, and then read the manual about 10 times and watched a bunch of tutorials on YouTube. Then I carefully installed the Stage 4 antenna kit from FPVLR and also a Flytrex Live. My first flight was just as planned. Excellent preparation mitigates bad things from happening. ;)
