    I swear to god I'm going nuts waiting for my Q500-4k. Flown smaller copters years ago but nothing like this beauty. Hope I don't do anything stupid. This forum seems to be helpful, you'll probably hear from me again. Any suggestions for a new guy on the block will be greatly appreciated.

    hi
    welcome , we all felt the same way , could not wait to get our Q's . the one thing i would say is read the manual at the very least twice . on your first couple of flights fly low under 100 ft , learn how the Q handles . take your time don't be in a hurry , check your surrounding's ,this is a great forum you will learn a lot ask as many questions as you can think of , have fun .
    fly safe

    Keep the bird close by at all times until your gain confidence in your particular bird.

    It very easy to fly and very easy to go one step too far so take your time until you are happy.

    But whatever - Enjoy.

    Happy flying

    Hi, best advice I have for you is to ask a lot of questions, if you are puzzled about something. Also, pay attention to the input you get from people who are labeled "Staff Member". Those people know a lot...this is a great forum. I always said that Yuneec should mention this forum with every quad they sell. I cannot imagine flying without all the good advice you get from all the great people on this forum...

    Dan,

    Although I am not USA based I believe there are specialist insurance companies around; however if you join a national organization (BMFA here) where by joining you get insurance cover and the ability to fly at clubs etc.

    It is a very cheap way to get not only insurance but professional help.

    I think your equivalent is the AMA.
