Talking about the Drone, first of all suppose to be ready to fly drone, you just plug batteries, turn on the drone, and you are ready to go... well i consider it is a almost ready to fly...i was happy and ansious to fly my drone for first time so i follow carefully step by step the instructions, but when the time to start the engine came, my propellas didn't move at all. I tried different ideas nothing work until, i start looking stress on the internet¡¡
then i realized you have to update the drone firmware (like every Smart equipment) using your laptop. i did this, i went outside and follow the same procedure, and my drone started to fly¡¡¡¡¡
Is flying dificult?
before i finally have my Iris3+ working, i went to a friend's house to teach me how to fly with one of his generic drones, so the first time i flow was not my Iris drone, i felt the flying dificult, uncomfortable, it was to sensible the drone for a completely rookie, so a couple of hours later when i flew my Iris, flying with it was incredible, very steady, wind was hard but Iris can hold its position in the air, other drones go with the wind like small paper planes¡
BE CAREFUL: I highly recommend you ask a friend how to fly, practice 10 minutes that will be enought, if i would not do this, im sure i would not even know how to land my drone and probably crashed it
My second tip is fly it first in a big open field, ¡¡¡¡¡ i did crashed my drone in a tree, but thanks godness it was not damaged¡¡
OK, now im sure lot of the buyers are having the same questions i had, which drone should i buy, why?
well the factor who makes take the decisión of buying the Iris3+ was the Autopilot mode, i loved the idea of being outdoors and have your drone flying behing you recording all of your movements( I am a gotcha player, motocross and love hiking), also the Mission Planner software to créate waypoints and missions for your drone is great, today is my fifth day with my drone, i already created some missions.
You can input parameters like latitude on each waypoint, see map as google maps, (Look videos at YouTube, 3dr have some cool tutorials)
Now the reason i give 4 stars instead of 5, no matter the good flying, good arrival to my house, is because i had no idea i had to updated my drone and i had like 3 o 4 hours stressed looking for a solution, suppose to be ready to fly drone this steps is not included in the instructions¡¡¡, and the second reason but is not that important, is because my Iris3+ is not compatible with my IPhone6, thats the reason for mission planner i have to use my laptop, eaither way the laptop is fine, but lets admit ir, you look very Pro flying your drone using your Android System.
Some additional Info for Travelers
I am currently living in Mexico, but i bougth my Iris thougth Amazon.com at the states. Today i am at Germany, so i am sure some of you may be asking, are any problems taking my drone with me? is flying the same America and Europe? Does in Germany exist flying policies?
Please see my answers¡
Is it safe to travel with your Drone?
Before risk to get in trouble to lose my Drone or one of my fligths, i first called to München and Frankfort Airport (Germany) to ask them if there's any problema traveling with a drone, they mentioned to me "No Problemo", so i took my drone with me, on my hand bag always of course, we arrive to the different airports but in none of them a problem was presented. Just in Cd. de Mexico Airport some small questions about why i was carrying this, Three mexican guards were looking at the scanner trying to identify what was that in my bag. they first thougth it was a Transformer
Is flying my drone in Germany different as America?
My answer is no, i just arrived to my work (Magna Elsendorf) where the first i did was to try my drone inmediatly¡¡ i saw a big field in front of my plant were i worked , it was snowy by the way¡. I turn on my drone, started to look GPS signal, it took 30 seconds, 45, a minute......i thougth my drone would not work, (back in Mexico GPS was ready in 5 seconds¡), suddenly the Drone ligth was blue indicating it was ready to fly¡ i started the engines and let it go¡¡ the Drone flow without any problem¡¡¡
Actually i also contacted 3dr personnel and ask them about this, first the lady answser to me telling me the drone wont work in europe¡ i insisted and send ger a second email, on her next email she answers apologyzing and telling me the drone will work fine, and yes it did.
Does it exist German flying policies?
As far as i know, not yet i spend already some hours flying my drone on my plant, outside the hotel, so far no problem at all. but i think sooner or later these policies will start to appear all around the world,
OK my friends, i hope this review was helpful, please comment or feel free to conact me via email Evaristo_bovio@hotmail.com
Initially you can fly it as is, then you open Mission Planner on your computer and start fiddling, add ways for it to fly by simply checking a box. Screw it all up and then ask for help on any of the forums or facebook pages dedicated to it. If they can't help you 3dr Support has proven they don't just want your business, they want your love and will work hard to get it.
I would recommend this to just about anyone who wants to learn and then advance in the hobby.
I didn't want to pay $280 for the IRIS carrying case. So I purchased the Pelican 1650 case for $220. I've added a picture of my IRIS+ inside of the Pelican case. I like it much better than the official IRIS case because it has alot of room and I don't need to remove the propellers once I put the IRIS inside the case.
I'll update if I have anything else to add.
3DR and Amazon both came through with good customer service to resolve the problem to my satisfaction.
