    I'm finding mine amazing and scary at the same time.
    It's easy enough to fly (I recommend control option 3 for any gamers out there) but I'm also petrified it's going to fly off or crash somewhere.
    I was flying around Picket Post in The New Forest yesterday, it was getting dark-ish but was quite moggy and I'd lose visual sight of it after 300m, even when I flash the red lights I couldn't see it (front light toggle is my C1).
    It's also amazing in sport mode. I just shoots across the sky.

    Fingers crossed for some clear skies over xmas so I can get it out some more.

    Managed to squeeze in a maiden flight this morning between dropping my daughter at nursery and starting work. What an amazing little machine!

    Great shot, Where is that?

    Is that straight out old camera as a jpg, or have you ├ędited the ding file?

    Wandsworth Park looking down river towards Central London.

    It's a very lightly modified copy of the jpg. I cropped it a bit and boosted the contrast a tiny bit. Other than that it's stock.

    Live in Warwickshire, work in Bedfordshire (and Northern Finland!), boat in Southampton.

    Mavic arrived a week ago so I'm getting used to it and all the features. First impressions are it's not as nice to fly as my P3P but the size ... OMG! Incredible.

    Looking forward to trying out the Active Track on the boat next week, weather gods permitting. If it all goes horribly wrong it'll be a very short ownership experience!

    I'm just south of Reading. I got my mavic in December after a 2 month wait.

    Still trying to figure it all out but so far I couldn't be happier.

    I'm getting a bit fed up of the weather - getting very little chance to actually fly the blooming' thing! Now got three batteries as well, so (hopefully) will get out and about soon. Looking out the window and it's ...... snowing. :-(
