Hello people.
I am new here. I have never owned a drone. Nor have I ever flown a drone.
I have flown rotor wing in the past and have about 250 hours in a R22 Robinson., and Bell 47.
Wanted to crop dust with a helicopter. Some of the training I have includes this.
That went tube surfing down the toilet, along with a bunch of money. Story of my life.

I know nothing about Drones. My first drone ( evo) will be here sometime tomorrow. Purchased new.
Since nothing in my life, other than being born, has ever gone right, I expect this might take the same route.
So anyway, I suspect some of this may turn funny , so stay tuned.

Sincerely,
J Lo

Welcome to the Forum. I think you will enjoy your membership. There are many other members happy to provide assistance for any issues you may have, and those that may need information you bring. A lot of good information is already stored in existing threads.

Couple easy things:
1.) The search Icon is your friend. It's the magnifying glass near the upper right of the screen when you scroll all the way up. It can find many answers you will never find by yourself.
2.) Be aware that you won't always get a quick response. There are times when many other members are on line, and sometimes only a few. A response may not show up until the right person sees it.
3.) Be aware the forum is Global. If you are exchanging with a member on the other side of the world, response can get delayed and out of sequence due to a difference in local time.
4.) Although the Forum is global, the language is English. It is customary to translate other languages to English. Many members also include the original language post to help alleviate translation errors.
5.) Review the forum rules (on the bottom right). There are not too many, but it is important they are followed to keep the Forum a useful and happy place for everyone.

Also please ***READ BEFORE POSTING FOR HELP***

That handle is a handful.

Anyway, cheer up man, your Autel drone will be fun. For flying tips there are many videos on YouTube. But as a pilot that shouldn’t be a problem for you. Take your time and start slowly and you will succeed. I have crashed several times with minor damage. It’s been part of my learning and no one was injured.
Check out Ken Heron on youtube. He has a show on tonight at 8 PM Eastern time. It Will give you a laugh and you will learn more about the drone community.

peace
