    I feel like its a right of passage to post your first flight. So here's mine , to spare the entire 13 minutes or so of back and forth confusion I cut it down and added some light music in the background.

    For the record, I have never flown one of these things before. I need a lot more practice. I do not think I had camera settings right. I stayed low because afraid I would crash. I am not 100% sure I calibrated the campus! but it did have no trouble holding position with 7 satellites, If after all that you still want to watch ..... Here you go

    Also here is a picture as well

    I will say relatively easy to fly, I was and will be nervous for a while until I get my bearings with the sticks. It was a sensitive as I thought it would be.

    Can you embed vimeo?

    Did you take the still with GoPro in still mode, or grab a frame from video?

    It's very sharp!
