So now I have about 30 flights under my belt and apart from my arm being sliced on my first hand catch I feel an update and a comment on the bird is important. I have successfully hand caught the bird about 12 times now but am always cautious as to not loose blood. The stability and total FUN of this bird cannot be understated. Friends properties my backyard local park all now under my belt with video photos and just flying enjoyment. I tried another brand that a friend had and well let's just say flying a brick with constant issues was that experience. I am playing with the Atti mode now to improve my abilities and strongly recommend this as recommended on other threads. Lastly there are sure to be some faulty birds and some issues with any product line. Just don't forget to comment on how good it is as well. Some people are too scared to fly their bird. RTFM practice don't fly outside your skill set and enjoy. Thank you DJI and to this forum for your help and product.
