    That was bloody terrifying! I'm hooked!

    First ever drone flight today with my (drunk purchase) Air 2 and it was bloody terrifying! No one said it would be! I don't even think the first time I did a solo in a fixed wing I was this worried! I walked out with confidence, did all the pre-flight checks, remembered to click record after...

    G'day from the land Down Under

    Hi All Just got my Mavic Air, and so stoked to be able to use it when I go out and about. The biggest bummer is that I can't fly it in the 'burbs' where I live in. Will have to do it when I'm out on the countryside for full effect. Bernz from Sydney Australia
