    wow that was a teeny bit scary switching modes in flight for the first time, and firing up a third party app (DronePan) - More on that in my other thread

    What did you folks feel like the first time?, I was a bit nervous to be fair wasn't sure what was gonna happen, but it worked fine.

    Only had one issue, finished in dronepan, shut the app down and went to the GO app, took control of the bird and the joysticks were frozen - yikes but I didn't panic, I messed around for a bit couldn't get it to respond so I pressed the RTH on the app, and it started coming home, cancelled the RTH and I had control back - hurrah all good

    want to start playing with the POI next in the go app

    Nervous. Didn't know what to expect. The bird did wobble for a second when I switched, but then hovered until I touched the joysticks.
    Feels okay now, as long as I've got altitude.
