I posted this last year…but there’s still a lot of good information in there and so I thought I would post again. I have learned a HUGE amount since the original post so please feel free to comment if you have questions that you would like answered.
Houldsworth's Random Ramblings
If you received a DJI Phantom for Christmas, then you are a lucky man…or woman, but I’m betting you’re a man.
The Phantom’s are amazing machines. They are great fun, produce really cool video footage and are super easy to fly as long as you have a good GPS signal.
But, before you fly, there are a few things you need to do, and a few things you need to know.
Not following this advice is, in the opinion of many, the #1 cause of “flyaways”, which is when the thing takes off and is never seen again. This is usually followed by people blasting DJI on Facebook and then deleting their post when people ask them about home lock.
Most of the details below are from my experience with an FC40. You may be lucky enough to have a more advanced unit, but the information should be mostly the same.
