Third flight. They said it was a bad flight controller.
Took 3 months to get back.
Sold it, right after.

Sorry to see that. I know the feeling I lost one Octa copter in the Pacific with only about 10 hours on it. Probably about $8K in the air.

I have hundreds of hours on my inspire and fortunately it's long paid for itself, so like I tell most new drone pilots don't put anything in the air you're not willing to lose.

Just wanted to drag this thread back up to see who else flies a drone. I have a Phantom 3 Professional. Simply amazing.

My Phantom Vision 2+ is still working great but I couldn't help ordering the new DJI Mavic. Should be here in a month or so.

Been flying drones for several years. Bought mine when they first came out. At that time, they had no altitude limits. New ones now have limited altitude to 400 feet per the FAA recommendations.
Not saying you should go over that, because that's the law. But, if you just need to get over that ridge that is 401 feet, its nice to be able to do so.
Honestly, having a drone is not something that makes you money unless you specifically have a cost benefit. I can see it if you are a farmer and want to survey your crops. Photography is a big one, but because drones are so cheap and prolific now, just about anyone can do some impressive aerial shots without hiring it out.
Also, we seem to be infatuated with the multi-blade drones, but true helicopters have benefits the multicopters don't. Plus, fixed wing drones have more range and endurance. Some hybrid fixed wings even allow hovering at target.
The air is getting crowded, and soon we will have highways in the sky just like on the ground.
Now, if they could just make flying RVs....

I have a Phantom 3 Advanced.
Have got some nice footage of several campgrounds we've stayed in.

Someone mentioned new drones have a 400' height limit.
My P3 Advanced has a 400 METER limit.

My brother just purchased a Phantom 4 Pro. (very recently)
It has the same 400 METER limit. That's 1312'
