    Didn't really see a thread for this, but am betting quite a few people here are into it.

    I just got my first drone for Christmas, a Snaptain A15H. Its descent for the price but not as stable in flight as I'd like it to be.

    I'm looking to add a GPS bird to the fleet and right now I got my sights set on a Holy Stone HS270. It's almost $200, but from what I understand you don't cheap out with these things.

    Any advise for a beginning drone hobbyist?

    Got some wicked drones to show off?

    Here's my first:

    I fly them for work and occasionally for fun...Lol. The best advice I can give is to practice practice practice. Take your time and be patient. And if you get into trouble, never stop flying the bird. As for price, the more you spend, the greater the reliability and the stability. But $200 is enough to get you started with a nice beginner machine.
