Greetings from central Alberta. After much whining and snivelling, she who controls the cash let me pick up my drone today. Got the batts charged, the iPad mini set up , and went out and got half an hour in running the batts down to 50% Still playing on the noob tether. That's alright though considering I completely skipped the "learn to fly on a cheap drone first" advice. Low and slow for a while for me. Fun though. I now understand why a fellow from the UK's advice was... "batts.... Get lots and lots of batts"
