    Hi all!!
    A fresh new pilot here from the Netherlands.
    Coming to browse the forum and lkearn from the experts.
    Just a bit about me, 37 years old, living in the Netherlands, working on my own in the music industry.
    Have been flying a parrot AR 2.0 for the last 1.5 years just to see if i liked the whole flying business.. And boy.... i love it.
    So last weekend i took the step and bought a Phantom Fc40. As the next step.

    I must say, quite a difference. The AR is idiot proof and locks itself pretty good while in hovering. Now i actually have to work for it. haha.
    No big crashes yet, just rough landings. need to practise the landing.
    Haven't taken it up that high yet as i am still shitting my pants when it's too high. Just a matter of try try try.

    So far so good, hope to learn some stuff from the experts here, hope to get to know some dutch pilots as well here.
    all the best!

    Welcome to the forum. The more you fly the more relaxed you get. And the fun just grows more with every flight.

    Thanks guys. I'll try to avoid the obvious noob questions. Youtube has helped me a lot, especially with the meaning of the LED flashings.
    So far so good.
