My son, he of "Worst place to be a Pilot, episode 3, minute 14................and others",  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l59QYnYdEE  has just given me his Phantom 3 Advanced! He used it extensively in Indonesia to check out new jungle landing strips before taking the P6 Porter into them so it has many interesting miles behind it. If you haven't seen the Worst Place series, well worth a watch to give a good insight into jungle flying in Papua!
Never flown anything like this before and at 80yo I see a steep, probably slow, learning curve ahead although it seems to be a very stable and user friendly machine.
I'm now looking for some good, basic flying information  :study: and will keep you posted on my progress!
The one thing I've noticed on the controller is a "come home" button  ;D
