    Anyone here fly Drones?

    My son started his new hobby and has me hooked on it. We still have not flown yet , but we just got our Drones. I was bidding on a few DJi Phantom 2 V1's and I ended up winning 5 Auctions. :ech: I put 3 up for auction

    Sounds interesting, I have thought that it would be fun and would like to try it.

    I bought a tiny one to learn on. All I did was crash. My son did a bit better, but still could not get it to hover indoor.

    Is the DJi Phantom 2 V1 a good one to start with for learning?

    Yes and no. It is not a toy, But i hear it is easy to fly. It is too expensive to start with. I bought it cause of the features, It has a 25 minute flight with a distance of 1,000 meters. Mine are also less expensive cause there is no Camera yet. You need to buy a Gimbol and a camera of your choosing. The Phantom is more of a pro model, Most people would set it up with a GoPro Camera, The GoPro camera is the tiny Camera that you may have seen on people's helmets when they
    ski or bike riders. Billy has a Gopro Camera that he posted pictures here with.

    Thanks, I will do some checking and see what I can learn. We have a big open field in back of our house which would be great for learning.

    Where did you end up winning 5 auctions? On Ebay?

    I have seen them flying when I went to Hawaii, and at Floyd Bennett in Brooklyn. They are all the rage. If I had more spare time I would definitely get into this.
    Are you selling them on Ebay?

    I have been emailing Eric , but I felt this was good info from our last PM that should be posted
    There are 4 models I would say are good to learn on. I am only posting the links, The Syma and the Hudson you can get cheaper elsewhere. The other 2 are cheap here cause they are refurbished. Let me know which one you want and I will look around ebay for you. You do not want to buy from China cause it can take a month to get. If you can wait Bidding on ebay and including China is cheap. If you want get 2 1 from china and one from the US so you get it quicker.

    This one is huge I have it
