The video below is a very brief unboxing/maiden flight video. I'm no professional. Hobbyist at best. My forte is goofy videos that make people laugh, but I couldn't resist getting an Inspire after I saw the promo videos.
I've never flown before, so I was taking it very easy. Also my lens got wet cause I was taking off and landing in moist grass. Lesson learned there.

Through this very forum I also met mkell7 today. He came out just shortly after my first lift off and he let me play camera operator on his drone which was a fun experience.

Jake, it's so much easier than you thought eh? The first time is always the hardest but once done you're then wishing for LOTS more batteries! Once the initial nervousness is gone you will quickly learn to trust your craft and I'm sure you willl have a lot of fun....happy flying!

Congrats Jake, Your 'popped cherry' look is priceless!

I use a small 4' folding table for set-up and launch. It's easily portable and only about $25 at target/walmart, etc...

Technically yes. But recent rain in December turned a lot of our golden hills green. We're still WAY below a good level. All resevoirs and lakes are well below where they should be.

But thanks for watching and enjoying.
