Last week I was trying to decided upon a hobby both my son and I could do together….Now buying a drone was not one of those “Homer Simpson – Bowling Ball” moments but a decision that would have us get out of the house a little more often. Even though the Phantom 4 Drone is a one man show it can still be enjoyed by all the family. Well I hope it can! So we purchased the DJI Phantom 4 last week and to our surprise only took 3 days to arrive direct from Hong Kong! (Thanks DHL and BecexTech AU) The drone arrived in good order and we did not have much trouble getting the unit up and running. It helps to spend a few hours on youtube to figure out all the issues first so that its smooth sailing when you get it.

This is a quick and nasty HD summary of day 1 with the drone….It went up, it did the whole “Auto Tracking” thing really well and we did not crash it! I’d say pretty successful. I think the biggest tip is to get all the firmware updated prior to first flight and ensure you let the drone warm up and acquire at least 10+ GPS satellites before taking off.
