I have been reading this forum for a few months now with no comment. My personal R/C hobby experience spans 25 years, but the assisted drone area of the hobby did not seem interesting. Fast forward to now and I am the happy owner of a Phantom 3 advanced courtesy of a very geneorous Christmas gift. I must thank everyone on this forum that takes the time to post helpful information about all the quirks, and neat features that are hidden away in the platform. If it were not for this forum my first flight would not have drawn me in like it has. Anyone that is interested in how it went here is a link: I am looking forward to contributing to the forum as I gain knowledge that can be added to the community.
