Thank you all for the information and help as I made the plunge into Phantom ownership. I had my maiden flight this morning and it was amazing. So thankful to live where I can fly out of my backyard and get views like the one in this shot. I went out about 1200 feet on the first flight, will venture out more as I get more comfortable. I was surprisingly nervous despite decades of RC experience and having flown other people's phantoms. But it was rock solid - thank goodness for 1.19 firmware! I only flew until 54% because of nerves. Haven't decided if I buy the battery break in theory.
