    I purchased my PV2 a week a go Wednesday and received it yesterday. I was very skeptical of my purchase but once I got it in the air I was very impressed. I live in a suburb out of Chicago, IL. Today was overcast, scattered showers, 32 degrees and wind speeds of up to 18-20 mph. Not only was I impressed with how the Phantom handled in the wind but with the camera's quality output and stability given the conditions.

    I had anywhere from 8 to 11 satelites locked at any given time and gained an altitude of 200 ft...for a newbie that was sufficient for me until good weather arrives. Anyway, I'm happy as can be and can't wait to get out again. Here is a clip of my first flight in gusty conditions. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsA9KXrDlKg

    Welcome to the quad world. Your next video should be your phantom playing chicken with a train and seeing which budged first.
