My wife purchased one of (well, the forum won't let me make links yet ...it is a Force1 UDI U818A Wifi FPV Drone with HD Camera, Remote Control) for me last Christmas. I purchased extra batteries and have flown it several times. I'm in an environment that typically has some wind. So I did my attempts behind my house which blocked the wind to some extent. I got to where I could control it some, and go where I wanted...somewhat. I tried a flight in front yesterday, and when it got into a bit stronger wind, it was about useless to try to control it. ( Of course, I am certain my lack of experience is a large contributor to that problem). That being said, along with a bit of reading on that one here, it is not a good one to use in a windy environment. Maybe too light? Not enough power? It is a cheap drone, after all. So, watching Flight of the Year... my interest is now piqued again. Of course, I don't expect to be able to fly like that. So, what do I want to do with it? Video (I do want quality video, but maybe not as high as the DJI Inspire Hobbiest Maybe get into commercial photography with it FPV of course Might consider racing, who knows what I'll end up doing So I've been reading here a bit (with a lot more to do), and I see different drones for different reasons. I have focused some on DJI drones. The Intelligent Flight really sparks my interest. I'm thinking the thing where it will return to you if you lose control sounds pretty good (assuming it works as advertised). Also having it follow something, etc. So I have considered these 3 so far: Mavic / Mavic Platinum (from what I read, the camera just isn't quite there) Phantom 4 Pro Used Inspire 1 I'm trying to decide whether I should purchase a better unit, but not as expensive as above, for more learning first. I was thinking maybe the Intelligent Flight might nurse me through the learning curve, and save the expense of an intermediate drone. I am open to suggestions on others, and any advice you are willing to spend the time to offer. Thanks... [EDIT] BTW...I realize that a simulater is something I should look at. I will need a controller that I can hook to a computer. The one that comes with that inexpensive drone I have has no way to do that.
