    So I had my first flight today...

    It seemed happy enough but I couldn't force a compass update for some reason.

    Is your Phantom still in one piece? Props on top and camera on the bottom?

    Then you did it right... :ugeek:

    Based on that the... it was a huge success :)

    I launched as suggested, popped the throttle, jumped to 6ft and hovered lovely.
    It didn't move around too much, so no TBE? :lol:

    Took some video, hand caught landings, so all in all a good first flight.

    Any landing where you are not out picking up plastic pieces, wires and circuit board bits is a good one.

    :cool:

    Congrats! The compass dance takes a little getting used to.
