    Does anyone fly indoors? What modes do you fly in. Understandably GPS mode is somewhat difficult lol..... :lol:

    Bad idea, IMHO. Any reason you can't fly outside on a calm day?

    That is one of two reasons I would like the inspire. I have been asked to photograph some sports teams in our High school gym. Second is the ability to run the ISO up over 400.

    Doesn't matter what GPS or mod you have.
    A metal roof will block most of the sky and allow only marginal reception through windows, or walls if they are wood..

    With a phantom it is tricky I found. I am very comfortable with atti mode outside but inside you have to be delicate. Here's my first try last fall https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=u6zqG2NN1oQl

    So much easier with the Inspire I'm sure.

    I flew in my garage when I first got my Phantom. That was the day I replaced my first set of props . . . . . .

    Flying in a gym can be tough. I found that being close to a ventilation system output/input causes drift from the air flow. Also, be careful of how close to the ceiling you are. Your bird could suck itself up to the ceiling if you're too close. Reset your return to home height to something less than the ceiling height as well. Good luck and have fun.
