Hello, I'm new to quadcopters and have never flown an Phantom but plan to buy my first very soon. I'm currently practising with a Hubsan x4 107D. How did you get started? Did you buy a small, trainer drone before buying a Phantom? If you bought a small quadcopter first, how many hours practice did you put in before buying a Phantom? Have you had any training or mentoring from experienced pilots, or are you entirely self-taught? Do you regard your Phantom as a stepping stone to bigger, more complex multirotors or will you stick with it? As you can see, I'm trying to get an idea of whether or not a structured approach is better than just buying one and jumping in at the deep end. I expect there's no right answer for everyone, but it would be interesting to know how people develop their skills.
