    Got my drone delivered this morning at work. Charged up batteries and controller, Watched a ton of you tube videos. Got home did my first flight.. man that was the most scariest thing I've done in awhile. Got that out of the way time for a few more flights before I take her out of beginner mode. Lol

    Your first flight out of beginner mode will be as scary as your first flight. All of a sudden you realize how fast these things can go. And then there's sport mode which is a whole 'nother thing.

    I felt the exact same way. If you take typical precautions, you won’t have any problems.
    Just make sure you understand the RTH settings and making sure your home point is set and know how to get out of any programmed mode if you need to

    Yeah, it's a bit scary, it took me a while to get the nerves under control, wait until you take it out about a mile or so for the first time, that's fun too,
    but it just gets better, enjoy !!

    Welcome to the MPPs Mavic Pro Pilots forum alot of good information here.
    My only advice is take ur time with her....And make sure your props are secure
    happened on my second flight . I did manage to recover the prop once it came back down , a good thing I left my gimbal cover on ...I woukd have been buying a new gimbal
    .Enjoy your Mavic
