    Any drone pilots here?

    Anyone a hobby or professional drone pilot? Our school just bought one (DJI Phantom 4 Pro). We're going to use it for photos/video and photogammetry surveying. Students are excited about flying, but I'm cramming trying to get up to speed before I let them fly. Any tips?

    Just spend some time getting used to the controls. As long as its linked to a satellite, it'll hover dead stick pretty well. Oh... and if you're using your phone to fly it, make sure it's on airplane mode. I nuked one of my phantom 2's because I got a phone call mid flight.

    The 4 Pro's controller actually has an integrated screen, no More phone calls mid flight. I've got everything charged, accounts registered, and am hoping to get it off the ground tomorrow. I brought it home to study...yeah that's it study
