    Received the P2V this afternoon, fitted the prop guards, updated to the latest firmware (2.0) and set it to Naza-M mode. Charged the batteries and took it outside to the back garden. I live in a flat so there was some obstruction to GPS from the east, most I coul get was 5 satelites therfore no GPS lock. The wind was blowing around 15-20 mph and I took off.

    It flies great, altitude remained fairly constant with the wind gusting but it did want to drift downwind. Previous experience flying nitro helicopters meant I wasn't too phased with the conditions, I even managed to land it without any tipping over.

    I can't wait until I have decent weather and a nice open space to try it properly.

    I still don't think there is any more exciting flight than your first, welcome. :D

    Thanks seahorse, it wasn't my first choice of location or weather conditions to be flying it for the first time but I did ok. Looking forward to getting GPS lock ad playing with IOC, home lock & course lock
