Hi all,

I am a newbie and still scouting for my 1st drone to play, any advice from fellow experts?

Where can I get them at a cheaper price?

Thanks.

why they suddenly use this forwarder wor? mine was always kerry express.
Apparently they came yesterday and left the undelivered slip below my door. Went to singpost collect today. In their tracking system, it still say at Singapore customs...


Btw, the drone i bought is this one from Gearbest.

Not sure because I am too noob le, i cannot seem to get it up into the air smoothly. It will not escalate upwards smoothly as I see in the youtube videos how other users of same model is playing. It will keep woobling to the sides, and even when it does reach the air, it does not stay stable at a fixed point there. I am not hoping to be as good as the video above, but at least can fly and play abit lor. Any experts can teach me?

get a toy drone first or dji spark to practice how to maneuver. it is hard to practice indoor though.

you have to do alignment. have you been through ns? the concept is similar to doing rifle zeroing. based on your controller it should be the one below the directional joysticks.

Brother, DJI Spark is more ex than the 2nd hand Phantom 3, it is about less than $500 for the 2nd hand Phantom 3 so is it better to get that over the Spark?

Oh, all DJI drones are using same APP, DJI GO so the simulator exist for all DJI Drones, I just check on Youtube to verify.

Yes, Phantom 3 is not as portable as Spark but for a start, it should be good for a bigger device as Phantom 3 has 3 axis for video stability compared to Spark with only 2 Axis.

Eventually, I will upgrade to Mavic Pro if I want a better and portable Drone.

Anyone want to fly the drone together, need some assistance and guidance from fellow Seniors here too!
