    Straight to phantom or toy first?

    Exactly what I did. It's good to know full manual flying. Makes moving to Phantom so easy.

    No Audio...Why?

    Hear all that noise when you take off? That's ALL you would hear. Audio would be useless. I have a Syma with audio on the camera, and nothing but noise.

    A question about video interference

    I'm still relatively new to the DJI world, but not drone flying. I'm using a Phantom 3 Standard with iPhone 5s. I use the phone in airplane mode with the WiFi active and BlueTooth off. I've noticed lately that when I fly anywhere from 30 ft up, I would get video signal dropping in and out...

    Battery drains extremely quickly... ON MY PHONE

    Hello from Connecticut

    Hi from NW Ct. I've been flying a Syma X8C for a few months, and finally made the move to the Phantom 3 Standard. I'm also a semi-pro/hobbyist photographer, and I can already see how this equipment will compliment my work. Looking forward to interacting with all of you.
