Hello everybody! It was a tough decision between the Mavic Pro 2 Zoom and the Mavic Mini, but as I have never flown a drone before, I thought the mini would be a good place to start. I wanted to document my whole process from opening the box to taking off for the first time. A friend who has flown only cheap drones, had told me I was crazy for launching my drone inside, explaining to me it would be flying all over the place, but I decided to stick with my plan. Launching my Mavic Mini for the first time had me very nervous, I fell in love right away and was worried I would crash my new best friend, but was incredibly surprised with how easy it was to manuver around my house! I became more and more excited as I had it follow me to the outdoors. That is as far as I had planned, so my flight in my backyard was essentially me trying to get the controls figured out. It didn't take me long to be comfortable with flying, but I was still nervous about my new baby. I kept my first flight short and sweet, but I am so excited to take it to some more scenic places and get some really cool shots! I am very open to any critics or advice anyone wants to throw my way

Here is the link to my quick video!
