I'm curious after reading posts here how many people went from no quad experience to a DJI? I see threads where if the pilot had a clue how to fly it never would have happened (no offense intended!) I've had probably 10 different small quads that actually require you to know how to fly it before doing anything, where the DJI you can be 1500 ft up and 9000ft away within 2 minutes of unboxing with little to no experience or even knowledge of how a quad flies. I guess what I'm getting at is I think it's hugely important to know how to fly before flying a 1000 dollar drone that almost flies itself, because when something goes wrong you need to know how to handle it. So many people can't even take off or land without the app, it's crazy to me!
