Don’t judge me on what I watch on youtube, but, during a silly segment a youtuber got to flying his first drone and I LOL’d at my own fondest memories of my first drone from moment of binding to wacking the ceiling. Maybe a few folk here would happened to have shared a similar experience. Here’s said youtube https://youtu.be/aOxLIT1_DQ4?t=773. Watch at 12:53, the rest is irrelevant brain melting material.
My first drone was 3 years ago. I couldn’t fly at all, crashing into every obstruction in it’s “easy” mode. I practiced flying around more and landing in different areas. Flips were done by a button press. I felt awesome; so naturally I wanted to upgrade. I went on the internet and for the first time searched “micro quadcopter upgrades”, I found RCgroups, then MMW, Benedikt, Alienwii. Everything was laid out for me, all I had to do was wait for an Alienwii to be available. 3 months later I had it in one hand while the other wiped my drool. I made every mistake with my first custom build; mixed motors up, mixed props up, and a polarity crisis :(. Troubleshooting was a breeze with the RCG knowledge base I followed but never partook in. Alienwii setup was a breeze with Benedikt’s tutorial video’s. Despite how overwhelming and intimidating the amount of information there is to know about these little quads I was in the air with my newest addiction in no time.
