    I am a commercial photographer for a living and one of my clients is a casino. When I told them that I had a drone they asked if it was possible to do some aerial video on the gaming floor. This will be when they are not open so flying over people isn't an issue, but I am assuming that both the GPS and compass will be inactive indoors and I was wondering if anyone here has some experience in these conditions so they could tell me how stable the P2V would be flying indoors. Thanks

    It's difficult. Get use to atti mode and watch out for ceilings and overhead stuff. The "to fast decent" propwash issues work in reverse if close to ceiling it will get sucked up into in... ask me how I know - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBMwIhX_Rok

    I fly mine in my living room. Never had a problem. If your used to flying in GPS, you will have to remember to counter your movements.
