Default DJI phantom 4

Hello everyone I recently ordered this off Amazon for 1400$ does anyone have this drone? If you do how do you like it? I did some research and it looks amazing. I will be using it mostly for aerial pictures and videos. Tips are very welcome

On my "wish list" - love the obstacle avoidance feature.
Been interested in DJI's latest Mavic Pro as well

Yeah I was split between the 2 but it seemed like the phantom 4 was a bit better for aerial video and photography

Isn't aerial photography fun? Great shots! Is that Chain Lakes?

If/when the DJI gets boring, build a 250mm racing quad with fpv and rip around the same area. Man that's a good time.

Thanks! Yeah it is a blast. That would be awesome but not being able to see the drone makes me nervous haha even with the FPV on the phone if I can't see the drone I panic lol.
Edit: it was coal lake just took it around Gwynne valley it is a beautiful place to fly

I hate pre-orders. I want to be able to pay, take it home, and play. I was hoping a couple would pop up before the 1st of the year. A few on Kiijij but they are asking $2000 instead of the $1300 they cost.

Im starting a project on Jan 1st and wanted to be able to incorporate some drone footage into it. Hopefully 1 pops up.

I ordered mine from Apple. Still no delivery until March! Was really hoping to get some #31DaysofHockey footage with the Drone.

I have named my mavic pro - Drone Iginla.

I have never flown a drone before. The mavic is pretty easy out of the box. I did crash it today trying to fly it indoors. There was a lot of magnetic interference and the drone did a ton of drifting and was not very responsive to controls. It's ok but I bought this to do some flying indoors so I'll need to do some more testing to figure it out.

Here is footage from Drone Iginla's first flight.
