Hi All, I am new to the forum and new to the hobby. I've been looking at the quad copters for well over a year now and finally told the wife that's what I wanted Santa to bring me this year. Lol So since I've been great, well good, ok ok maybe pretty good this year, I'm getting one this Christmas! So...... I'm excited and nervous at the same time as these forums can scare us newbies regarding some of the horror stories I've read. But, nonetheless, I decided to go for it and I will just take it super slow and take my time learning and always fly with a newly 100% charged battery and stay low for a while till my comfort level and my learning and experience increases over time. So, my questions to all of you experienced quad pilots is: Now that I will have this quad copter soon, what other accessories do you suggest are needed and why? I don't have a hard shell case yet but my BD is in Jan so that's #1 on my list to get. But what other things will I need to enjoy the hobby? What accessories should I stay away from (brand etc)? My purpose is to learn to take great videos from the sky. Thanks in advance for your advice on my question and other advice given on the forum!!!! Great website!!!!
