Re: Fear of Flying

awesome

you can get a hubsan x4 with no camera for 49.99 ready to fly. Its small so it wont work in any wind. Its small so you can fly it indoors. But one. fly for 30 days at least 1 hour per day. Now after 30 days go have fun with your phanthom . You will know how to fly it .

Re: Fear of Flying

Yup, that's how I did it too. Tough little suckers, so you can crash a ton and not worry too much about breaking things. Since it has no GPS, you actually learn how to fly in manual mode. Afterwards, the Phantom will be a walk in the park.

Good idea, except those little things are sold out almost everywhere I look!
