The Anafi is my third drone in three months! The first cheapie 818 stopped transmitting after one hour (refunded and allowed to keep for practice), the second 818 started random un-commanded descents into the ground (refund pending), and then I got angry and got the Anafi! Whoo hoo! (y)

I'm a 70 year old retired pilot who did aerial photography for the last 15 years of my career. Now, instead of a $150K Cessna 180, I can do that for a mere $445!

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.

Welcome!

Flying is something that you never can get out of your system. I'm also a former manned aircraft pilot (SEL, instrument rating) but you were way above my budget. I had a 1959 C-150 straight tail, manual flaps (flap lever was like the parking brake in old cars) that I purchased and later sold for $9,800, so the Anafi ($750 extended package) wasn't that far off the mark :).

Enjoy!
