I got my P3 for Christmas like a few did on here, and I took it slow and steady learning how to operate and control the thing be tootling round the garden and field next to my house. I did not stray far in distance or height, and I got to admit I was shaking with nerves on the first few flights. I did not fly in full throttle, and I was so gentle with the controls every time. The weather has not been greet here in the UK, but the last few weeks its been getting brighter with a LOT less wind. hurrah more flights The point is my confidence in the machine has grown immeasurably it is a very stable platform for sure, and I have been flying much further away than the end of the garden as well as exploring the speed and height (why does anyone need to go above 400ft its more than enough?) I flew my 6 batteries twice yesterday over the whole day, and that is the MOST fun I have had with the Phantom since I got it, I'd like to think I am getting quite good and maneuvering the thing in the sky. Spacial awareness and what orientation the thing is in the sky seems to be something I am OK at - lol It has taken a while but I now look at the screen a LOT more than the P3 in the sky, I am no longer worried it has fallen out of the sky, I can see its still up on the screen. I love this hobby!
