After about an hour of practice in a windless area (inside my room on the floor. Don't worry, I was intensely careful.), I feel like I have definitely improved. As soon as the picnic field nearby is mown, I'll be heading there on an empty, windless day and practicing. By then, hopefully I'll have plenty of spare batteries. It's not fun getting 7-10 minutes of fly time on an hour charge. I will try taking my drone to a few clear-ish places around my yard, hovering, and taking some short videos or pictures from above head height.
