I've only flown a drone three times, all in the past two days.Twice to practice at the local school ballfield, and today above the Santa Barbara, CA harbor and marina. Really nervous flying out over the ocean without a direct line of sight, but I got the drone back safely. Here are two from that flight, using my new P4P + v2.0.

Unless you are using waypoint software, you can't fly without a clear, unobstructed line of sight between your controller and the aircraft.
Perhaps you mean you went out of visual range?
Nice pix btw.

You're correct, Meta4. Twas my first flight without looking at the craft with my own eyes the whole time. I'm sure everyone does that, but the first time is scary.
