    Ok.. so I have had my phantom for 5 days... and it occurred to me that learning to fly this will require some good practice flight patterns. So here is my 2 cents for all us newbies... try all of the patterns below with clock wise and counter clockwise direction. Try all patterns in GPS, attitude and manual mode

    1. Try flying a simple rectangle with good crisp 90 degree turns.

    2 try a nose-in hover making a crisp clean circle and maintain constant altitude .try using a target like a cone, garbage can or your wife :lol:

    3 try figure 8 patterns while maintaining level altitude

    I think if you can master all 3 in GPS, attitude and manual you will be in good shape
