Hi all! New member today of this forum and owner of a P2V+ yesterday but so **** busy haven't even cracked the box open ! But have been looking up must-reads before I attempt to fly including finding this forum! I'm surprised there is no "Newbie" thread (maybe I missed it)? Anyhoo, reading some of the threads re: issues (some major ones!) I am now scared shitless to even attempt a 1st flight !!! I would hope that if one carefully and thoroughly reads all provided manuals and startup proceedures all "should" go well? It does appear though that this is not always the case. Wondering too can the bird be flown withoout the fragile gimbla/camera attached so that in the event of a crash one less damaged expensive item on board?
