First flight was a success!! Took a while to figure out how to get it to initialize and unlock, but once I did, all was good. Running the iOS version and I did the firmware update to the drone. The only thing that didn't seem to be working properly was "follow me" mode, but I had limited space to try it.
Regarding battery %, is it normal to have it reporting a low battery percentage (like under 18%), then after you land the % will rise again? Is this a function of how the LiPO batteries work (maybe it cools a bit and then will "come back".
So, as suggested, first few flights will be just the basic drone, then I'll put the camera on. Looking forward to that. Will keep you posted!
