Hi David

You’ll be fine, the mini 2 is quite an easy flier. Get your operator ID sorted and have a read through

Make sure your firmware is all up to date at home and before your first flight.

Then, find a big, wide open space and get used to operating it.

Hi David

No need to be nervous - if you feel things are getting away from you just let go of the sticks and the Mini 2 will generally sort itself out and just come to a hover
