Every day if I could, but weather, work and general life gets in the way most of the time. 2-3 times a week is usual.

Yeah, I like to fly every day, it's good practice. Of course work, school, and inclement weather get in the way sometime, so that's why I added 'often', because I don't think anyone can fly every day. But if more often than not you fly every other day, then every 2-3 days would be the best choice. At least I know now that I'm not the only who likes to fly as much as possible

Used to fly more frequently.   Seems I've been slowly backing off.  Not quite as excited as I used to be but still like them and fly them occasionally.

As frequently as possible. When the seasonal weather cooperates.

Does www.realflight.com count.? Everyday, if so. ;-)

Having more flight packs doesn't make me want to fly more regularly,

Ah, but when I do, I can keep it up, longer. ;-)

Right now averaging 2-3 days a week but I just got it for Christmas and had to send it out for repair for 3 weeks right after Christmas.   Poll me again in 6 months when the novelty wears off and it starts getting hot out there.

I'm trying to be like that.   I have 3 batteries so can go to some places away from home and take several flights.

I usually do one flight at 4:00 pm and one at 5:00-5:30, during school days. In the weekends I do more than 3 flights, just with one battery.

I work at home. semi-retired.....If it's not raining....I'm out for at least one battery.   2-5 flights/week.
This spring and summer......I'll be doing some overnighters with my Phantom mistress.
Hope the wife doesn't catch on....she probably thinks I have  a girl friend or something normal like that.

This is my first RC aircraft of any type, can't fly it enough!  Everyday and twice a day on weekends. I enjoyed it more before the constant lost signals.

Same here... I used to get amped up just to put the bird in the air, now unless I have something cool to film I don't get too excited. I've pretty much droned every public place (baseball fields, boat ramps, lakes, dams, rivers) around my house, work and along the route in between home and work.

We created a group of Veterans called the "Phantom Regiment".  We meet once a week, and encourage one another to practice flying as much as possible.  The more practice, the less chance for pilot error.

I fly at least once a day, work permitting several times. In case of bad weather, I fly the Spark inside, that's why I bought the Spark.

I used to fly way more, especially shortly after I got my first DJI drone, a Phantom FC40. A lot of the flying with it was to perfect its Walkera G-2D gimbal stability. Ever since I got a Phantom 3, however, I've found myself flying less, I have no trouble flying the drone, and I'm not worried about the gimbal shaking anymore because of how high quality DJI's gimbals are. I usually fly my Phantom 3 when I find an opportunity to get that perfect video shot, or to show off. Sometimes I'll still fly my Phantom FC40 for practice (almost 3 years old now!). Other than DJI drones, I also have a collection of RC planes, which I have found myself flying more frequently lately.

I let fly my Phantom often as the weather allows me to let it take off beside the forest near my home.

looking at the log book spreadsheet I keep, it is just over a year since I got my Phantom 4 Pro. 156 flights, 31.4 hours flight time.

Wind, weather and work conspire against me flying more

Yep ... to be honest unless I have a specific reason to video ... I find the DJI gear to be boring to fly.

For more interesting flight - even my $40 Mavic look-alike is more fun .. flips, aerobatics that DJI cannot do.

But of course I am a regular RC flier of many years before these machines ever appeared.

I cannot answer the poll as my flying is completely random with DJI gear
