Wish my H arrived yesterday, weather was much nicer, but I'm not complaining. I'm very much a novice and hate reading manuals but did my best but could only comprehend so much new information at once. At DroneClone's suggestion a few weeks ago I purchased a Hubsan X4 107c and have been flying that around in the house to get some experience in (the one time I took it outside a gust of wind took it up into an orange tree, LOL). I already had 2 extra batteries and spent some time charging them and reading some more. The controller was also less than half charged and that takes forever to charge and was charging that (may have been faster if I charged it from the USB port in the Yuneec charger than my computer). I called Yuneec while waiting and was told they don't have extra batteries for the controller yet. It's been windy all day and not getting better. Still about 23 MPH as I write. Near my home it's sheltered a bit from my orchard and further to the west a row of huge eucalyptus trees. Anxiety was a bit elevated since flying into the wrong direction in this congested area meant there was greater risk of me running into something. I took the H up to 30-35' and the wind did definitely blow it around a bit more up there but not too bad. I kept it in Smart mode to avoid confusion leading to crashing into an obstacle. I need a lot more experience before flying in Angle/Pilot mode (or at least a lot more room to have time to adjust to mistakes). Starting video recording was a bit confusing. I held the button a little too long I guess and that would not initiate recording and I finally figured out that it had to be a fairly quick tap to initiate the recording. Taking photos was easier. Photos have good color and contrast. I typically adjust the contrast in photos from my DSLR to a setting of 40 and that almost seemed like too much. They were not very sharp but I think this is most likely due to camera movement caused by wind. Overall, I'm happy with these shots. The H seemed quiet to me compared to my limited exposure to Phantoms that I recall. I'm still confused about the different pan and tilt settings on the controller, need to read more about that. Hang in there folks, it's worth it!
