    did my first flight, very easy to fly, we got chased off by a very nice security guard, we went to another parking lot but I was getting compass error and something about IMU calibration, I figured it was because we where close to some sort of interference. No biggie, will hit up the soccer field once the kids leave the game.

    No crash, easy to land.

    video here, sorry no sound, probably not the most interesting video but hey, I am still learning.


    added second flight to the post.

    Not bad first flight. Might have been steel under the tarmac or concrete.

    she said they did not allow people to use the parking area, strange I know but thats cool, she is just doing her job, she was cool about it and said we could try the parking lot at the school but lots of interference there.

    Do you have any experience flying other quads prior to this P3?
    At least the security guard spoke to you with a smile on her face. Good on her.

    I have some micro drones that I play in the house with, they are much harder to fly then the P3
