    I'm new, just joined and haven't flown yet but will in two days. I'm waiting for my first two quadcopters to arrive on Friday. At least one of them will; the other may be later. I've ordered a Hubsan X4 H107L and a Syma X5 Explorer. The Hubsan will be here for sure on Friday. I'm not yet interested in cameras, but perhaps later. I don't even take photos with my phone much. I just wanna play!

    Hello there Quadboy! Welcome aboard.

    Sounds like you e got a barrel of fun coming your way. Glad to see you chose to learn on a slightly smaller scale before diving into the deep end :)

    I'm in Vermont, and I see you're up in Maine. Hope you're finally seeing the good weather after this endless winter! :)

    Enjoy the forum, and be sure to keep us updated on your adventures.

    Thanks. It's been over 80F the last two days and expected to be today also. I have a backyard weather station here which uploads to the web, so I can monitor wind speed and direction (even on my smartphone) which should help me to know when outdoor flying is safe. I just ordered a prop guard for the Hubsan, which I forgot to order originally. The Syma will come with one.

    Having accurate weather info is key. I'm lucky enough to have a small airport nearby that reports accurately.

    The weather has been pretty sweet around here the past few days - of course I was away, so missed the first glimpses of outdoor freedom :)

    I flew my Hubsan a bit indoors but I soon decided to wait for the prop guard I ordered before any further flight. I'm still waiting for it and my Syma X5.

    Never used a Syma X5, but I have a Hubsan h107c. Incredible and stable flying machine. But the L version is more agile and have longer flight time. No video, more fun!

    I flew both today. I'm not very good at it yet but I know how to land them properly when I'm about to crash. The Syma seems much easier to fly. Bigger is easier I guess.
