What a great experience!!!
on April 13, 2014
I bought this quadcopter as my entry into the X-copter hobby because the one I built did not work out so well. It was a great choice as I want another. Currently eyeballing other dji products to expand my FX40 and expand my current fleet of one :-). Unlike past outdoor RC products I have purchased, this product has a wider range of wind speed that it can handle. Thus far I have been able to fly in up to 22 mph winds. Also, unlike other RC's, I have not had to sink as much money into repairs thus I have been able to enhance it further to my liking.
This package has the needed starter accessories to enjoy flying the Phantom day one! The blade guards do actually do a great job of protecting the propellers. Never needed to use the extra propellers because the blade guards worked so well. You probably only need one set of guards...unless you get to aggressive with the Phantom. The extra battery will be desired after your first flight because you will really want to fly this copter again. In fact, buy as many batteries as you can. Also, I never really had to suffer from the video jello effect because of the extra dampener accessory.
Overall, I love this thing! My next one will be a DJI for sure! Not sure if it will be the S800 Evo or the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ (coming late April 2014).
