I've gotten really curious to buy a new DJI Phantom 4, purely for fun and entertainment (no commercial value for me).

Anyone else here flying drones regularly?

I am also interested and had looked at the Phantom 3 but it didn't have waypoints so I was hesitant. It appears the Phantom 4 does have waypoints. I'll have to look at it further.

My Son does..he has a pretty nice one and makes films with it..very cool. Him and I took a ten day drive out west (Wyoming, Montana, Dakotas..) this Summer via mostly side roads and just stopped to gather footage whenever WE WANTED..and it was a blast..I did still stuff, he flew and shot..the thing is amazing and very cool for still shots, too..way cool for that, imo.

His rig has a quite a range (more than a mile?)..goes way high up and is amazingly fast..wish i could recall the brand..cost him about 1800 American?

When I see one, I want to shoot it down.

Thanks Kraniac, your and your son's experience just confirm I'll probably just REALLY enjoy it!

Was into it for awhile, but they made it illegal in this area.

Would have to drive 30 miles away or get clearance from the FAA and my local airport. Kind of takes the fun out of it. Gave away my big helis and quads.

Was fun while it lasted.

Don't forget to sign up and pay for your license, stencil the registration code onto your quadcopter and install the firmware that keeps it from flying in no-fly zones.

Do you have the same feelings about low flying helicopters and airplanes?

We have a DJI Phantom 4, upgraded from the DJI Phantom 2.

It's amazing - basically an unlimited tripod in the air.

Here's a vid my son took:
