I was out this morning at sunrise, it was about 55 degrees and no wind. I put it up at 12 feet to hover while the battery warmed up and I was surprised at how solid the hover was. It was almost like it was glued there . I then took it up to 230 feet and took a picture of the sun over the Atlantic. Had forgotten to charge the controller and got the warning so that was it for the day. I have to say that I have had the machine for a month and could not be happier. Orbits like the book says it will and the clarity of the camera is amazing.
