    Hi everyone ,
    So, I have got myself a P4.
    I have always wanted a Drone and finally took the plunge and bought one.
    I have spent Many Hours reading here and watched just about every video I can find on them and finally decided to go straight for the Litchi app (I do have DJI Go as well).
    I am now into day 6, and loving it, so far I have not let " Bernard " out of my sight but I think the day will soon be here.
    I have been practicing RTH and some general flying around, also on Litchi planning local Way point flights and saving them for when I finally have the Guts to send Bernard off on his own Lol.
    Anyway
    Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated .
    Also is there anyone else here from NS , Halifax area ?

    Best i could say is to master atti and do your pre flight check.Have fun! If something is bound to happen it will.It is electronics one of the best but still!So go further each time don't go too much and practice!

    Ha , I am Newer than you lol, Like I said I have done a lot of reading , lets face it the cost of our "as my wife says TOYS " Is quit HIGH , for the extra cost of the Litchi app I took it upon myself to learn it , I also have DJI Go which I used for my first few flights. I suppose it all depends on what you want to do , I also have a passion for photography and always looked into the distance at those things that I can not get to without a Boat or Plane ,so I guess this just had to happen one day .
