Hi All, Thanks for all the info I've learned here. I thought I'd share my first impressions and photos: I appreciate that this thing flew out of the box. The manual is a little hard to read, but the video tutorials are great. I've been into and out of RC for 20 years... including 3 failed attempts to love gas powered heli's. I really wanted a well-sorted way to get in the air, see what the new technology looked like, and gauge how addictive (very!) it was going to become. I know some people have had issues, but the stabilization and intelligence in this thing is amazing, and it's a great way to bring more people successfully into the hobby. Mine has been amazingly durable so far - I hit a palm tree I was foolishly trying to make laps around, my wife nailed a wooden fence, and it ate its share of dirt on the first day or two. I'm still running the battered original props! My only real gripe is the status LED... I'm red-green colorblind, so the status light is pretty much useless. I can mostly infer what it's telling me by count and pattern, but that could have been easier. In an age of cheap displays, surely there is a better way than trying to count and time a stupid blinking light. The red-green underbody lights don't help me much either - swapping them out will probably be project #1. I haven't bought a GoPro yet, but I couldn't resist trying to get a few pics. This was taken with my cell phone electrical-taped to the GoPro mount and a time lapse app. Cheers!
