    You were outrunning the cars lol. How far was this?

    It was just over 15,000ft (2.9 miles). Had to override it wanting to RTH. Still landed with over 30% battery as I was flying into the wind on the way out to give a safety margin for the return. Was flying at full speed with the wind behind me - hence overtaking the cars!

    Well did I fly today? Yes I did. And did I crash today? Yes I did!

    Bonus points if you can name the TV series the soundtrack comes from.

    Wow that is amazing - like a 70s Arcade Game but in real life!

    My wife got me a cheap little Quadrone Cell for Christmas and now I'm hooked. I lost it in a tree today and now have a few more Syma drones in order.

    That's how I got into it - got one last Christmas and have been hooked since.

    How old are you? I'm 37. I open a toy meant for 10 year old and now I'm pacing the house until my new drones made for 14 year olds arrive on Wednesday. I feel very juvenile.

    I ordered a Syma X11, X12, and X5C-1.

    The long range one was done with a Phantom 3 Advanced with some long range antennas from fpvlr.com on the transmitter. By the way I'm 10 years older than you!

    Ordered an FPV camera for my Syma X5SC, so until it arrives I've been practicing indoor flight. Still got a lot of practice to do before I become truly competent!

    I think I could best be described as a novice pilot at this point, but heck, I've been enjoying it! As a side note, my Syma can take a heck of a beating and keep going... quite impressed with that!

    The video quality looks pretty decent. I bet it would be a huge improvement if you can balance the props.

    Been having some rough sessions lately lol. My shuriken x1 is temporarily grounded, so i flew the vortex 250 today. Going to start PID tuning this one as the X1 feels so much better to me right otb.
