Hey guys - being a TOTAL newbie, I try to feel what you are talking about. By the way: Bruno - your self-built rigs are awesome! Being a very experienced SCUBA diver (58 years of experience) however, I can understand the argument that one must master some skills, even if with more advanced equipment some of those will not always be totally necessary. As I wrote before, good to know that later on things will get easier... hopefully ! But in the long run, my aim is not to become a drone pilot doing flips and rolls and manoeuvre through narrow alleys. My aim is to get artistic aerial shots. I just ordered one of the basic drones Bruno recommended (I will not mention any brands!) and I'll certainly familiarise with piloting skills before taking this any further. Bruno, Alan, Johng, thanks for your advice and encouragement. One day, I hope to be one of yours.
