    did a practice run on the simulator then did my first flight. when I got it back down I was well chuffed, I took it very steady only went up and down because I was in my back garden. I found out that I had left the plastic protector on the lens as well, and it was dusk so the video is not that good. but I have my first flight out of the way. this quadcopter is a fantastic bit of kit.

    Steve the P3 is a beautiful piece of kit.

    I'm leaning towards the Inspire 1 just for photography and special occasions.

    Eveytime you fly the P3 it will amuse you and put a smile on your face. mine does all the time)

    Weathers been bad for the last few days and havent had a proper good flight in ages. Waiting for it to get a bit better so I can go for a good flight.


    Enjoy.

    P.s loving your garden setup.

    Lol I was going to type Drone then thought nah that sounds bad because of the way media potray the word 'drone', then thought quad/quadcopter and thought nah that sounds too low for a P3, a quad makes me think of bepo and syma etc.

    So thought might as well just say piece of kit being neutral and means 'Wonderful technology' in UK terminology lol

    While I was typing that I knew someone was going to pull me out for that comment.

    I like your garden sir. If that were mine, I'd be feeling quite chuffed with myself.
    I really love learning the UK lingo!
