When I got my TH I have never had a drone before. I have learned a lot from this forum and videos online. What I suggest is getting extra rotors immediately if your a beginner. This drone is powerful and I've crashed mine practicing in places with lots of obstacles at first and panicked when it moved towards something and froze on what direction to steer it and broke props. It's sturdy I can say that and haven't had any broke or damaged parts after 3 crashes. This sounds like common sense but practice flying in my backyard and taking it easy flying low but I had a few beers and even with a buzz it takes away the reaction time to get out of trouble and I just watched in slow motion as it hit the kids swingset. My girl just gave me a look like really. I had trouble trusting the Intel real sense around trees for a long time but take the time to slowly find its limits. I tried to see how it responded to flying into trees and other objects. It doesn't see wires or cables well but I can tell you it's trust worthy. If you haven't used your wizard or worried it's complicated then you need to try it but in a field first. It's actually pretty simple and videos out there to help. Always put your landing gear up or it will show in shot during certain moves. The camera needs to have neutral density lenses and set costs 50 bucks. It blocks out sunlight giving better color and helps with color change especially around for forest or greenery where it goes from green to light green. Use a white paper and lock in white balance to help with exposure. I also have had it not want to descend high up and freaked me out. Just stay calm you will get it down. Sometimes I have to go up a little then down. I also tried to save it from a crash by grabbing it and I advise you it will cut you and deep. If you get hit in the face it would be devastating so don't ever try to grab it when it's moving horizontal. If you catch it by hand instead of landing that is safe and I've had windy day and it landed and flipped and broke props. I hope there is other pilots that can add to this but I hope this helps.
