Hi! I'm new to drones and just found out a P4P is being gifted to me. I know I'll need extra batteries and memory cards. I'm downloading quad sims to start to learn to fly. What else do you think are important accessories? I will be getting the care refresh and I know to register with the FAA.

I'm thinking of getting a 10" tablet, probably not an apple. Can a Kindle work with the P4P? Are there any other inexpensive tablets that work well?

I'm looking at the PolarPro P4P model Cinema Vivid ND plus CP filters. Opinions on them?

Does anyone have favorite back packs, rolling cases and prop guards?

Any accessories that I'll probably want later? Opinions on landing gear and gimbel protectors?

Any other tips on learning to fly?

Thanks.

Filters not really required since the P4P has an aperture setting and you can use aperture to darken photo as needed.

Manfretto backpack a must.

Nice gimbal protector comes with it.

I'd recommend the charging hub and extra batteries.

Check out my must-haves list here.

You can find a list of recommended and commonly used tablets here.

The P4P PolarPro filters have not been released yet. I haven't seen anyone post any reviews of them either.

You can find a list of commonly used cases/backpacks here.

My favorite brand is Go Professional. They use Pelican cases and their foam inserts are designed well and are second to none quality wise. Check out their compact case (I own this one) and their case with wheels.

You can find lots of tips at PhantomHelp.com.

Two more questions.

What are the 2 or 3 most visible colors from the ground against a clear or cloudy sky?

Do the range boosters improve reception in areas of high 2.4 and 5.8 GHz traffic?

Thanks.
