Had no idea what I was doing but had watched enough instructional videos and so I thought it was time to get my feet wet. Not a breath of wind (until just after take off, Murphy's Law) and so up it went and sounding like a giant mosquito on steroids. The controls are fool proof and work like a charm, little learning curve aside from getting the feel of how stick movement relates to spatial air movement. Anyway, I played around with all the controls moved it up and down, all around, and in a square .... and then the wind came up. :shock: I can now see that you can get in 'real big trouble' with the wind. The wind suddenly became gusty out of the east and the phantom started to drift every so slightly westward. It seemed to be fighting the wind but slowly losing ground. I could move west, north, south but it did not seem to be able to advance eastward and even hovering it appeared to loose slight ground over time. I tried to bring it back but it seemed to be controllable in every direction but back towards me which was directly into the wind. To make matters worse, the phantom was now positioned directly between myself and the sun and I could hardly see it let alone determine what direction it was pointed in. I have a big back field with about 150yards clearance on all sides but it had (ever so slowly) drifted and was now only about 20ft from a massive black spruce grove at the edge of the northwest side of the field. So I panicked and flipped the S1 switch and signaled it to return to home. It took a few seconds and then shot straight up in the air about 30 feet or so before coming directly for me, hovered over me and started to descend slowly, slowly where I took control(should I have been able to take control or was it suppose to land itself?) and landed it like a feather. I had loaded the DJI Vision App but when I got up to the field it said no WIFI - although it appeared to understand that I had calibrated the compass probably (need some help and feedback on that part). Anyway, I need some critique on what I shouldn't have done, what I should have done and what If (anything) I did right! I've got thick skin, so let me have it and hopefully in will shorten my learning curve!
