Hello everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. My real name is Jay and I live in Melbourne, Florida. So my wife was handing me Christmas presents to open and I was surprised to see she bought me a drone. I didn’t even open it until the next day because I was unsure about how to fly it. She assured me it didn’t matter if I broke it or anything else since she only paid $29.00 lol. I felt ok after knowing that. I was very awkward trying to figure it out. My experience is with RC nitro 4wd trucks and buggies as well as electric cars. I once had a cox tethered plane, also a Christmas gift, when I was 10. It went straight up and straight down. I’m 56 now and always wished I could have gotten the hang of RC flying but didn’t want to lose my investment after the first flight. Anyway, she bought me a sky rider falcon 2 pro. I got too high up with it on a slightly windy day, next thing I know, it’s across the street and way above the neighbors house and quickly becoming less and less visible. I panicked and pushed it even further out, and then it was gone. I was heartbroken. I went inside and logged onto amazon and chose a Holy Stone 181W. After a few days of loving that, I bought another Holy Stone, HS170 mini. I find the small one even harder to control but enjoy getting better. Two days ago after watching YouTube videos for hours, I ordered another Holy Stone. The HS400, which arrives tomorrow. This one is described as “large” so I’ll see how it is different than the mini and the medium ones I have. I don’t know if I’ll ever advance to the expensive drones. I know it’s all relative when it comes to price but until I become proficient, I’m keeping it under $150 per drone. Thanks, and I’ll be seeing you on the other boards!
