Hi from darkest Warwickshire.
« on: October 10, 2017, 19:42:35 »
Hi..

I';ve been reading up on here, watching some of the vid';s on the tube over the last few months.  Today I received my first drone, a Syma x5sc to learn on and crash and try again.  ;)

It only arrived about an hour ago, but I got it out the box, and as there was a small amount in the battery I had to have a go indoors.

Just a little hover in the living room,  no more than a foot high, and a little tour around the floor, much to the amusement of my better half.  I';ve got a long way to go, I';m sure I';ll get the hang of it, I do drive a 44-ton truck after all.  :sweating:

I';m sure I';ll be doing a load more reading and watching vids,  also the odd questions.  :cool:

Funny you should say that....I';ve been reading up on the kit side of drones.
As I love tinkering with stuff like this l can see that as a project.

Andy
Does the "LOT" of fun have anything to do with the advert that follows your post????    :wack0    :crossfingers:

Hi Icefever, I guess you';re soon going to get DAS (Drone Acquisition Syndrome), it';s no good trying to resist it just happens and boy does your bank account and plastic know about it ::)
A decent start, Syma make decent toy grade models, once you get the hang of it you';re going to want something more serious; first decide what you want to do with it - Race or Aerial photography or just generally whizzing about and then ask advice - good advice will be freely given, you';re in the right place!
