    My first to, most eye opening thing to me was downloading the B4UFly app and realizing that I can't throw a rock without hitting 3 airport fly zones within 5 miles of my home.

    I live in an airport zone, small local one. Called the airport manager and he said anytime I plan on going over a few hundred feet to just text him and let him know so he can pass along the info. Pretty cool guy.

    I am a complete nivice when it comes to drones but not a total RC novice but it will be a while before im going over 200 feet :) no ver high buildings were i live however i am picking up that you need to get into the habit of setting the RTH hight everytime you change your flying location to allow for whats around you :)
