So the old man and I got the drone yesterday but couldn't take it out until today. We were impressed! We love this thing. We took off and landed twice each in Beginner Mode or whatever it's called. Right after that we turned off beginner mode and tore up the skies. We didn't crash it. My father came close to crashing it on our first take off just because he had to get familiar with the concept of moving forward, relative to where the drone is pointing. Anyways, it didn't crash and that was the only close call. I need to mess with the menu a bit more. Seems after beginner mode was turned off it was set to only 150 meters height by default and 50 meters or something distance. Is it safe to manually adjust these to the max or???? I didn't bother updating firmware yet. I wanted to cruise straight out of the box. and that's what we both did. Got some beautiful shots too. Only thing I need to do is calibrate the camera/gimbal I think. Here are some shots from today. I still got a lot to learn but today was mainly to get a handle on flying this thing. A couple more sessions and then we start moving onto some advanced stuff. So far we're loving this thing though, the only problem is the flight time. You NEED extra batteries because if not, you'll be pulling your hair out wishing the battery would charge in 2 minutes so you can get it back up in the air!
