My First Drone Flight and Yes it Was Awesome

Went Drone flying with family today. I was so excited to say the least. The sky was clear and the weather was good. I’ve know about drone for years but never had the opportunity to get up close and personal with one until now.

From the moment I was handed the controller I felt excitement and a little nervous. Began with basic movements of forward and back. Then learned how to turn left and right while moving forward doing wide oval shaped loops in the sky.
 
The Phantom 4 Pro was so stable. As soon as you let go of the controls is stops in mid air. Just waiting for you. I took it pretty easy, going slow. Didn’t want to crash it my first time. LOL.

We went as high as 100 meters in the air, it was difficult to see at that height. The view from the 4K onboard camera was amazing as we did a 360 rotation. The furtherest it was away was about 250 m. It was like a little spec at that distance. The live video feed from the 4K camera made you feel comfortable even though it was a long way away.

Each battery lasted about 30 minutes. We had 2 batteries, so that was an hour of flying time.
 
Really enjoyed my first Drone flight. Hope I get to get to do it again sometime.
