    Hi Stamford, thanks for the tips. Funny you mention about hands shaking, well I can tell you mine are shaking without goggles on. The little beasts put the fear of god in me. Without the goggles on and everything I can think of in parameters as low as possible I can hover the things without too much trouble. It’s when I try moving forward I have trouble, to a certain degree at slow speed I can move forward, and now realise I have to add a bit of throttle to stop it hitting the planet, problem is with these things as soon as you apply what you think is a very small amount of stick the thing wants to get to the moon ASAP. That’s where I have been loosing it and earth bound she comes quicker then I can blink. Getting better I must admit as the days go on, having fun though and a good laugh at myself. Tried out the angle mode today and that did seem to help as I managed a couple of 50mtr runs forward and backward. When I say backward that is reverse as haven’t had the courage yet to turn her round and come back forward. Lost signal a few times today and lucky the failsafe kicked in as she just fell out of the sky. Found when I got back home the ground wire from the receiver had come more or less away. Must of happened on one of the crashes. Love repairing them, keeps me from talking to the wife ha!

    In the Betaflight configurator you have the option for adding expo to the throttle which gives you softer throttle response around mid stick.
    I think you can also limit your max throttle, that will soften it even more.
    Flying a quad line of sight is hard, you have very little to judge your orientation.
    Much easier with the goggles on, put them on and just do it. :D
    Those are a couple of powerful little beasties you have there.
    Kinda like never having ridden a motorcycle and jumping on a 1000cc beast to learn.

    Think you are right don the goggles, and try and keep my eyes open, have been taking the goggles with me every time and I turn them on to see if I see a picture and I always do. I shall go into betaflight and do as you suggest. Stand by for the next episode of the “Red Baron hits the dirt again”.

    Well, I didn't jump on a liter bike, but my first time riding a motor cycle was right after I purchased it from the dealership. Signed for it and said "okay, now teach me how to ride it...". His jaw dropped and he said "you don't need this bike, I will tear up the paperwork". Hell no, I was going to learn or die trying. And what was my first bike? A 2004 Yamaha R6 LE. Verified 168mph bike lmao. Don't sit up going that fast, found that out the hard way hahaha.
