    Hello All, Just bought a Phantom 3 Advanced. Have been reading this forum for over a month and wanted to say thank you for all of your fine advice. I finally put my Quad in the air today, and happy to say without a single problem. no flying off props or fly a ways. Also took the advice and bought a Syma X5SW and learned to fly that. 1st boy was that good advice. It makes flying the P3A a dream to fly.
    Again Thank you all for your help in getting me off the ground safely.

    Just over one year..P2V3..waiting on a P4 now....another nice place is Hickories Park off the Concert Hill...Once you get comfortable flying..Try the South Hills of Vestal PA border area..Nice scenery from the hills overlooking the Valleys
