    He's a very meticulous guy and so has been training with a drone simulator before actually taking his drone out. I was quite cocky about how good I'd be at the simulation given I actually play games and he was borrowing one of my PS4 controllers to use with the "game".

    Holy hell - those things are not easy to control! Ate crow big time, it takes a real deft touch to control those things properly. I am not touching the real thing when it arrives.
    I already feel like you are summarizing my first few months up very well. Iv been following a gent on YouTube who has about as much time as I will have to dedicate to drone flying and its taken him around 6 months to get "comfortable" and nearly a year to dp some basic tricks and flips. I was also certain because I play with a controller that it should be easy but looks far from it.

    Going to have a few sessions in the drone sim first before I take it out into the wild, far from water, trees and tar! I remember when I used to fly my normal DJI without GPS mode and stability settings off and that already was a handful so can only imagine how this will be with almost zero assistance and stability controls.

    Been trying to build one for 4 years now so the excitement is killing me and really looking forward to the day I can ace it!

    I think a lot of the trouble with why it's hard to fly a drone is the notion to watch the drone instead of the screen and the delay in response also causing some trouble.

    Also, wind is a much bigger bitch than you expect, especially on the smaller ones.

    The ones with the full VR style setup completely alleviate that problem and I believe makes it much easier.
