    I just got my drone today. DJI Phantom 3. I unboxed it, charged it, put it all together, watched a quick video then flew it in the house... then crashed it into the wall! It held up and took the hit but it scared the s##t out of me. I am so impatient and it needed a software update but I wanted to try it out. I was afraid to take it outside because I figured I would turn it on and watch it fly away. Oh well after the crash I flew it a few more times and and then took it out on its maiden flight.

    This thing is awesome. If you ever get a chance to play with one I am sure you would buy it.

    I did have one, traded it a while back though. Kinda happy about it now with everything in the news about them haha. Certainly a fun thing to play with if you know what your doing. I never did fly it inside though :). I did lose connection to it one time and luckily it "returned to home", what a heart racing 5 minutes waiting for it come back or fly away lol. I had the cheaper one, but hopefully will get a phantom 2+ at some point, but its not high on my buy list right now. Glad you like yours.

    Yeah I can see where they would be an issue if you lived in town. I live in the country in a small town so mostly I fly out over the woods. I did fly it from my house to the school today to see my son at football practice. It was funny because he came running in the house and said "Oh I thought I'd beat you home" I asked what he was talking about and he said when he came out of the school after dressing there was drone flying around. Wasn't mine.

    @OakleyFrankFMJ where did you see the carbon fiber drone? Was it a DJI?
