It has been four days now since I started messing around with quadcopter and I think I am doing very well. I am no longer crashing into the ground and I am able to control the drone much better. I am able to fly at high altitudes and even perform 360 degree flips with the special flip button.
Overall I am very pleased with my progress.
My drone is a JJRC H8C and you can get one like it at Amazon.com.
