Not OB pilot but here are some tips

Read quick start guide and manual
YouTube and DJI have tutorial videos
With clear unobstructed view and surroundings,
Practice take offs and landings.
Suggest takeoff to low hover and practice your compass point orientation.
Graduate to flying out tail in to 20 feet doing 180 turn and flying back nose in.
Increase you distance and altitude as you become more proficient.
Use only controller for above , add dji go 4 app on device .
Read up on app and all its possibilities.
This is a great forum .

I am in Va Beach and have been looking for a reason to come down to the OB. Maybe I could come down and help you out while getting some flight time in for myself.

If you want to fly on the beach in Kitty Hawk area, you'll need to get permission from the National Parks Service. The airspace around the Wright Brothers Memorial is restricted because of the airstrip and it's managed by the NPS. If you contact the Memorial, they can put you in touch with the appropriate person at the NPS. I was able to get approval to fly within the 5 KM radius of the memorial by email and DJI took that email and unlocked my Phantom. I was able to get some great shots and videos flying over the beach at Kill Devil Hills.
