I took my drone out for its maiden flight this morning. I am happy to say that all went well. I was able to take off, ascend to about 10m, fly the drone around and land it back safely.
For the moment, I am flying in "beginner mode" which restricts the height at which I can fly. It also makes the controls a little less responsive and will not allow me to fly unless I have a GPS signal.
There were a few issues though, nothing to do with the drone.
My iPhone 5s is just too small to see properly the settings and where the drone is going. Even if it was larger though, the glare of the sun on the screen combined with my glasses which darken in the sun made it very difficult to see.
I bought a landing mat to ensure that the drone came down on something soft. However, as the drone came down, the wind from the propellers moved the mat away DOH!!
I've got a support for my iPad coming along with a sunshade for it. That should mean I will be able to see what the camera is looking at and view the map which shows where the drone is currently positioned. Looking forward to my next flight once those items have arrived.
