Anyone use the "EHang Ghost"

Does anyone have any experience with the EHang Ghost? I'm looking for an easy to use drone to shoot some aeriel footage for some clients. I have zero experience flying, so this one caught my eye.

Re: Anyone use the "EHang Ghost"

I don't recommend flying anything that doesn't have actual joysticks. The touch screen interface is okay for some things, but you don't get the tactile sensation that is necessary for good control of the craft.

Plus, props facing down just makes them more likely to end up in the images.

Just my thoughts,

If you are working for clients and have no experience flying a drone you might be much better of just hiring a licensed drone operator so you at least will have professional looking results and you will know you will be legally in order.

Re: Anyone use the "EHang Ghost"

After looking into the Ghost and finding lots of issues, I'm leaning towards buying a Phantom 3 pro.

Noa, I'll take my time and learn how to reliably fly it before hiring it out to clients, not in any rush. And, I like to think I have enough common sense not to get in any legal trouble with it, but I guess we'll find out. ;)
