There are many real concerns on this forum now.... ESC/motor mismatch, thin wires, flyaways, crashes, glitchy software, etc While not making light of any of these topics, I just wanted to share that I am having a blast flying and doing aerial photography, honing my flying skills, and planning for the future. I think about what I want to try and learn and practice whenever I can. Once again, I really enjoy this hobby and cannot wait to see what the future holds. My mods are pretty simple for my Phantom 2 vision plus V2: Two types of gimbal protection A front headlight A replaced GPS antenna The famous copper GPS shield The slow yaw remote control mod The gimbal tilt lever on the RC back I had the new motors in my possession ready to be installed... And decided to return them when Frank and DBS had their unfortunate incidents I practice a lot, try not to take any chances, read and learn something about these things everyday. It's not always been a bed of roses. I crashed due to VRS and dji fixed it and returned it after three months. Due to user error (overconfidence) I crashed and destroyed my gimbal. My fault, I bought a new camera/gimbal and another guard. That was a couple months and many flights ago. Since then, and with the few new mods, I've not had a serious mishap and have really been enjoying myself. Lessons for me: well, prop guards, leave them in the drawer (where mine are) Practice practice practice Listen to the good advice on this and other forums Overconfidence can hurt I just wanted to share that I think many of us are indeed enjoying our drones Are you?
