I have had the drone for three days now. It came with a 55 page manual and I wanted to memorize all of it before flying for the first time. This drone is a very sophisticated device that uses GPS for navigation, and a "return to home" mode if it looses contact with its controller, among other things. It has a number of colored lights on it, and you need to know what all the lights mean if they light up. It was also really windy for two days as well and these drones can't fly in high winds. But finally, today, the heavy rains stopped late in the afternoon, and I decided to try for a first flight. It was amazing - this aircraft is actually really easy to control and the flight was flawless. I can't wait to go looking for subjects that look really interesting from the air. Stay tuned.
