    Well done Guillermo. I remember my first flight well. I only had a micro drone before this & a small rc helicopter. I took my p3a over the woods i dare not try when i was on my other rc models. Iremember being very nervous, but very impressed with my new toy. Happy flying.

    I was scared at first but after a few minutes, is just like the syma but way easier because the phanton just hover, also got 17 satélites, the glonass really help 7 glonass, check on my phone, so the entire fly was really nice and relaxed, I have some concerns about the video quality but I think is just matter of configuration , I took 1080p 60fps in auto.

    The hardest part was customs of my country, the drones pay %100 over the price so, I was really concern about that but my American friend, he is super American so they don't even ask anything

    Don't compare P3 with that Syma, there is no comparison at all. It's so easy to fly this lovely P3. Be careful, let the batteries be fully charged and fly above all obstacles. Many had hit branches of trees and had unfortunate time.

    I think they know that they can get enough money out of your pockets. Next time be little louder and ask who wants chocolates. No one will come to you. Haha

    Lag will be there depending upon the processing power available to the cpu. Don't worry much about it, you can always improve with faster devices. I don't even mind 1 sec delay as nothing happens that fast in one second at site and you know what you are doing with your aircraft. Avoid going closer to a tree or building.
