Looking for a good comfortable flying chair. The field I fly at has so many cheap ripped and broken ones that there must be something better.

Any preferences to a Highback, Lowback, Sling, Recliner, Beach chair, Rocker, Stool, Directors tall, armrests or not, etc?

I use different chairs, a rocker, sling, zero gravity, and one with a side table. Because I am flying out in the woods or desert, any will do but being that I hand catch most of the time a table to set the rc on is the biggest addition. I can either land on the small card table or hand catch and set the remote down. The rocker is great, the zero gravity works fine but the table is the key. Kmart.com

Why do you need a chair? When I fly my drone, I feel as if I'm flying in the air. That moment I really don't think of any chair.

Disabled people need to sit before falling over :) Or in my case, sit before I think :) haha

I tried a Stratolounger reclining chair once but it took three people to unload it and my wife wondered why it was missing from the living room. I felt like a king though plus it was too tempting to just doze off.

That's why we have RTH enabled. It'll be there waiting for you when you wake up from your nap.

Absolutely. Get one of these. Don't scoff at the price. I've used the same one for years and years, and I'm a big guy. This stool will last forever, it's light and beautifully built. Wicked comfortable too.

Cheers
