Ok, please, somebody, what is it like flying manual mode? I've read tons of back and forth about how you should know how to fly manual, but I've never seen a video or read a good, well reasoned explanation of what it's like, how to do it, or how to take those first baby steps without killing the Phantom. Best I can do is imagine going to a large, deep grassy field (which I have) getting into nice stable hover, taking a deep breath, touch my magic Grateful Dead totem, and pull the switch. Hope for the best?!! I've hovered a jet ranger, and it's the most intense single task I've ever tried in my life. :ugeek: They say it's like balancing a basketball on your nose, and that's a pretty apt description in my experience. Is it the same with a multi-rotor? How about it? Can somebody step up to the plate with a good primer for flying manual, or a least what to watch out for when the hammer comes down on that right switch?
