    Welcome from a fellow noob. Good times are coming your way.

    I've already picked up some great tips reading through here and watching a lot of YouTube.

    One thing I would suggest, print out a good pre/post-flight checklist and follow it EVERY time.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have been able to fly some but was limited with just the one battery. I have several now. This thing is fun to fly for sure.
