    Hello Drone Community

    Just bought a Phantom 3 last Saturday and have flown it about five times now. Found this forum and I am looking forward to learning how to fly and exploit all the features of my AC. I hail from Georgia, 63 years old, retired, and kinda a gadget guy, but totally in over my head right now.
