flying is a lot of fun, but does take practice (at least for me). also, the dji phantom is like getting a camera body only. you'll most likely need to purchase more acessories to get a higher percentage of quality shots. (i.e. special anti vibration products like rubber, gel, or a gimbal.)
i would recommend at least 3-4 extra batteries, 1 set of back up blades, 1 set of landing gears/legs, and guards to help protect blades in flight.
my gimbal (CM2000 v5) acted up and would not stop shaking. hobby wing thus far has provided very excellent and responsive service and offered to exchange it for a new one since we were not able to fix it. this is what it was doing (vimeo.com/74695407)
