    New P3P user here...

    First flight Sunday in beginner mode. Seems pretty simple to fly. Of course my prior flying experience is from manual helios and toy quads. This computerized stuff makes it easy!

    And that's a good thing as I like the stabilized video.

    We have some acreage here but unfortunately a LOT of trees. Trees are really bad, like the spikes in Sonic the Hedgehog if you catch my drift.

    The wind was about 11 knots at takeoff, seemed to cope very well compared to manual stick flying.

    This should be fun, hopefully this hobby doesn't get too expensive like my cameras. LOLOL

    Hope you're in a part of MD where it is legal to fly. Watch those treetops too! Enjoy your P3P, I am so far.

    Depends where. Hagerstown airport and Camp David have no fly areas near the Mason Dixon line.

    Western Harford County. Trust me, nothing around here but farmland and cows.
    Have to watch out for shotguns though! :)
