PhotoshopCAFE DJI_PHANTOM reviews

DJI Phantom Quadcopter Drones: Aerial Photography & Video Handbook (DVD) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Superfluous Ponderosity While watching the DVD, I found myself frequently making hand gestures at my monitorthe kind that you make when trying to get a speaker to move it along. Too much time is spent on other products that do not concern me. I was only interested in the learning to fly the Phantom 2 Vision+. The DVD spends too much time on the Phantom and Phantom 2. Colin Smith is a Photoshop person, not a drone expert. Consequently, the lessons on this DVD lean more toward a jack-of-all-trades and expert-of none lessons. It attempts to teach a little bit about a lot. You may find the DVD to be very useful and a great place to start. If the cost was lower, the cost/benefit would prompt me to possibly give it 5 stars. I give it a 3 for superfluous ponderosity, and price vs. benefit. That being said, I do recommend it if price is not your concern and you are good at fast-forwarding through the superfluous stuff. I will definitely look into other Colin Smith DVDs. After all, if you can afford to spend the money for an expensive drone, you might want to consider investing in your education.
