    Just wanted to say hi. I have built and flown RC aircraft and helicopters for several years and also RC cars. Haven't done much lately as the dust is accumulating on them. I also sail and follow a few cruising folks. One of them is using a quad-copter to film his travels and that got me interested in them. Started doing research on this forum and elsewhere and got very excited with the Inspire. I was seriously thinking of dishing out the $3k but regained control of myself and decided to try the Phantom. Bought my P3P from Amazon on their store card. I received the new model (W323A/GL300B FW1.3.20) I believe, and flew my first short flight. It was breezy last Sunday but I was surprised how steady the thing hovered, nothing at all like my Trex, and hands free at that. Yesterday loaded the new firmware without a hitch and hope to fly alot more this weekend and get familiar with using the camera. Glad there is so much info here on this thing.
    Cheers,
    Doug

    I love mine. Even when I'm out with the wife riding the Goldwing, I'm always looking for places to fly.
