Finally had her in the air... I have a nice back yard to practice with.
Big difference from the x5c1 Syma... A few Nervous jerks from me.

The phantom is WAY easier to fly than any cheap $100 quad....phantom fights wind like a champ and the null position of the sticks allows you to just let go of them and quad will hover.....i managed to lose 3 $100-129 quads considering myself preparing for a phantom....and man i could have just saved the 4 odd hundred dollars i spent trying to fly outdoors with the syma....night and day difference

Your doing it right! Keep it in beginner mode for a while... She big and intimidating at first... How long have you been practicing? I took 3 months of flying after work for an hour...I feel so much better about doing that first. $$$ It's the Phantom 3 Pro...

Thank you...

I think it's the Muscle Memory you get from the cheaper ones that help the most... Heck yeah I could just go in the house and grab a drink and she will just be hovering were I left her. I really like that... I just need to calm the darn sticks down they are to fast in response for me to keep it steady... Time Is my friend...
