    Got mine!

    By the time I activated mine at the store, three more were sold and only two were left. My Christmas season starts now. :)

    Oh yeah, am outside the PH. Yours will be delivered at PH Internet speed. ;)

    My colleague has one. She says its too small/light for outdoor usage.

    For me, I practiced flying using an App (QuadcopterFX Simulator) then decided to get the Air

    It’s a selfie drone, a tad below the Spark. It’s actually not made by DJI but uses DJI’s navigation software. Bought my niece one a few months back. It doesnt use a gimbal for stabilization hence the jello effect on videos. Range is fairly limited but it will suffice for basic aerial photography.

    Got the Tello its more than a toy but not full fledged film drone. I did tweaked it a bit got a wifi extender so I got the twice the distance and got an app that increased the flight ceiling 10 times the limit but I just fly it no more than 30 meters up

    I have one, using it mainly indoor. There should be sufficient lighting in order for a stable hover.

    The Tello FPV app is for Android phones, unfortunately.

    Got mine three weeks ago. Got a wifi extender to fly it a little farther. Thinking of buying the Gamesir remote controller, if it helps.
