I have been thinking about buying a quad-copter or drone for some time now. I flew U-Control model airplanes as a kid. Now I want to try my hand at taking some photos and videos from a drone. Nothing spectacular, mind you, real simple and close-in stuff is my goal. These are not toys and you need to learn to fly them safely first.
I’m first going to have to learn to fly it. That’s why I decided to buy the DJI Phantom 2 Visual+. It is supposed to be one of the simplest to fly.
It took me a long time to learn to fly my model airplanes. Fortunately, the one I received for Christmas one year was plastic and was held together with rubber bands. When I crashed it, everything just flew apart but did not break. I hope I learn faster with the Phantom. I have a lot more invested in it.
I have lots to learn over the coming months. I should get mine in about a week. I’m looking forward to posting photos taken from it at some point, rather than images of it shattered into tiny pieces.
Exciting times ahead. Stay tuned.
