    Hey Guys,

    New to the forum!

    I took my Phantom 3 Professional out on it's first flight Yesterday, and managed to make a short video from the footage I got.

    I would appreciate it if you had a look at it and could tell me what you think! Thanks!

    Cool video!

    Any issues flying when it is hot out?

    Thanks Kman !

    There were no issues with the Phantom, but I did experience some problems with both my iPad & iPhone overheating during the flights (it was over 40c where we were flying).

    If anyone has any tips to prevent it from overheating, I would love to hear them!

    Can you share the exact location? I want to do my maiden flight here in Dubai avoiding a maiden trip to jail!

    Good idea actually. Was thinking to go in the desert around Maidan track, I don't really need scenery just yet.

    Hi I checked with officials. It is compulsory to be registered and the use of a camera device is strictly prohibited, even, and the insisted on this, for FPV... They advise me, once registered, to fly with a cover on the camera to prove I was not using camera in case of a control.

    They will soon publish a no fly zone map.

    In other words, Dubai will be just to train to fly in remote parts...
