    Got my Phantom 3 Standard a couple of weeks ago and have managed to fit in a couple of test flights.
    Only issue I have is the battery doesn't last long enough :confused: It needs to last at least 2 hours...;) for your first couple of flights. I was having such a great time flying it and was so disappointed when the battery died and had to pack away and go home to recharge.

    Looks like I'm heading out to get another couple of batteries as one battery is never going to fill my appitite.

    Anyway. Hi from New Zealand.
    I look forward to being able to share footage of this beautiful land I live in once I get the hang of this flying thing.

    Yeah, I can see how this is going to get very addictive (and expensive).
    Bought myself a Syma X5C about 6 month ago just to see if owning one was just a fad. That way I wasn't wasteing lots of $.

    So up to now (in the last 2 weeks) I've bought the Phantom, a range extender, Litchi app, a tablet holder and now looking at more batteries.
    Something tells me it's not going to stop there......
