We will always give the advice to get proper Training. We have on our Training page an option for flight training for one day with one of our Instructors. After this day you will have a better understanding of how a Drone works, how to react in an emergency if the Drone doesn't respond in a normal manner. We will introduce you to the Fly app and explain all of its functions, we will cover basic flight modes and then as the day goes on we will introduce you to advance flight modes.
