Thanks, this is the first time I'm actually looking forward to the season change. I'd like to get some nice winter/snowy footage this year.

I've only had my phantom for about 3 months, so this winter will be my first with it, and i definitely plan on getting some footage! I subscribed to your youtube channel, so looking forward to more videos!

Cool, thanks, I'll sub as well. The real challenge is getting out to fly to get the footage. Life happens, trying to get better though. Taking the phantom with me to more an more places.

Yup, lakefront is good to go. Way too windy today. Wanted to get some footage as well. Northerly island is a really good place to practice an get comfortable with flying. Very nice view of the skyline.

Finally may be able to fly tomorrow, weather looks good with low winds, ordered ARGtek range extender, backpack, tablet holder and new decals since I bought it used (once) with two batteries, one brand new the original with only one charge and the decals where placed off position. The ARGtek may arrive on Friday so I will get a chance to test with stock antenna, any tips besides the norm (fly away from people, buildings, calm winds,etc.) for first real flight? Thanks.
