    Great vid .... Are you holding the joystick in the "Up" position so that it moves positively in that direction? I don't have mine yet ... so I'm trying to visualize what you are doing. Loved the action and views you present .. very attractive.

    I used the Auto take off and move the stick forward gently. So far it performs very well your going to love it.
    i hope you get it soon and thank you for your kind comments.

    Tried hand catching it today for the first time. As soon as I grabbed it I had to clamp on very hard while holding down the left stick till it stopped. Alot harder than I thought

    Put it in sports mode via the switch on the side of the controller and with the OA off you will be able to grab it and power it off.

    That's a crazy story trying to reach between 4 spinning blades. I'm glad you weren't injured more seriously.

    Ok. To be clear how does one take off with it though? As in how do you get the props fired up? Simply hit the take off button?

    I use the auto launch, just be ready for that violent starting shudder if you don't straighten the props.
    Also it tends to drop down slowly after you move away - as if it isn't sure how the ground suddenly isn't there anymore.
