Hi guys and girls

My lovely wife has got me a p3s for Christmas. I can't wait to get flying. Has anyone got any tips for me for when I first set it up? I know it's not ready to fly straight out the box firmware and omu calibration etc. Just thought who better to ask then the people who've already done it. It's not my first drone I'm currently flying a blade 350 qx 3. Will I be impressed with the phantom?

Thanks guys
Craig.

Craig, welcome. I love my P3S. Great bird. You may see some people saying take it back and stuff, but you can't beat it to start out for DJI. You can see how much fun I have had with it this year on my website: www.beeline-aerial.com. Those are just a few things I have done with it.

For me, I found the holder it comes with for my phone got in the way. I did a little mod to the controller by adding this holder. I have since upgraded my iPad and just use that now with this same setup.

Square Jellyfish MNLGTBLMT337 Metal iPad Air Tripod Mount https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010YBQRMO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_6.gqyb0XD9WSX

The makefire shows up as unavailable from time to time like today, but it is usually back up in a couple days.

I also got this backpack, awesome! DJI Phantom 3 – Hardshell Backpack CP.PT.000239 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZWY68I2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_s-gqybNXC1K4P

At least one extra battery is nice to have too. I have 3 total. It gets me about 1hr20min of flying which is great. I got extra sd cards as well since I was filling them up quick.

Enjoy it, play with some settings with photos and videos. It is a ton of fun and welcome again!
