Big Sky! Lots of open space to fly!
Welcome from Iowa! I just recently bought the air three and so far I’m really loving it. I think you made a great choice. 👍🏻
Thanks PMF! I have done 3 test flights so far and I love it <3
 
Howdy all. New member here. I am from a small farming town northwest of Los Angeles in the fertile Ventura County region. I have been flying drones since 2014. I bought small, very hard to fly, cheap drones to learn to fly. Once I could fly one of them in a figure eight maintaining forward orientation throughout the eight, I figured I was ready to buy a real drone. In 2015 I bought a P3P and it served me very well up until recently when it suffered a failure in the gimbal control. I used that as an excuse (combined with an unwillingness to spend money on an RID module to hang off of the thing) to invest in a more modern drone.

To that end I purchased an AIR 3. It seems things have come a long ways since the old P3P. I use my drone recreationally as well as commercially. A friend approached me about a year and a half ago to do some construction progress image captures so I acquired a part 107 certification and I have been doing that work ever since. I went through the Pilot Institute part 107 made easy course and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Now with the firmware up to date and registration complete on the Air 3, tomorrow morning I will be going out to test fly it and get a feel for it as I have actual drone work to do on Sunday morning. I charged all the batteries last night - Boy that took a while. At first I was using a 10w USB block but after a few hours and not 1 battery charged yet, I switched it to a 25w Macbook USBC charger and that worked much better. Wish me luck and thanks for having me here in your community.
👏👏👏👏👏 Great Stuff Welcome back
