Hello all from Suburban Philadelphia. I FINALLY pulled the trigger and grabbed the Mavic Pro, "Fly More" was on sale.

I admit I wanted this since early LAST year - but I actually decided on the Autel X-Star Premium. It's been an up and down ride / experience with that though, I won't get into it. But sadly I lost fun in flying this, also the trust in it was pretty much gone.

JUST came in from my very first flight - brief test flight, beginner mode to get familiar with the controls, settings - it's a slight new learning curve with the Mavic. All I can say is "wow!" It's the little things right now - finally I have a smooth flight, steady hover..no jerkiness as I'm flying or slight drift to the left. Smooth Yaw and for the 1st time - in what feels like forever...a level horizon!

I didn't even get into the guts of all the settings yet...but I'm gonna have fun with this! :)
