Ordered my Phantom, two extra batteries, spare props, anti-vibration kit and the prop balancer fixture from Amazon yesterday. I should have it tomorrow. I plan on just practicing in the backyard with take offs and smooth landings. I really don't foresee ever flying at maximum distances away, I just don't see that well to be pushing the limits and I won't have a spotter. So, 300 feet would be too much elevation to do what I want and probably 300 feet horizontally would be it. (I know these will probably grow as I get experience) I've never flown RC before so I'll be trying to get as much practice as I can to get so I don't keep looking at the controller. How long does it take to charge a battery? I may want to do continuous flight for perhaps an hour or more, just stopping to swap batteries and change card in camera. Wondering if the three batteries will be enough. I would always be charging one in the car (use inverter for the charger to plug into. Perhaps a second charger would be in order? I am going to set timer on my iPad for 12 minutes of flying time, would that be about right? I figure that would give it enough time to get back from the distances I plan on flying. So many questions! Tim T.
