Lesson 3 - First Flights
In this video Jim Bendewald provides the instructions needed for a good and safe flight. There are several things to know and think about before taking off for the first time. Nobody wants to crash, but like teenage drivers of cars most drone crashes are from those who are new to flying. So it makes sense to learn some basics before you fly.
In this lesson you will learn how to use the flight simulator. The simulator is also used to help the viewer understand Course Lock and why it is so important. The lesson includes basics like the aircraft lights and how to put on the gimbal lock. Next, is the important section on the Preflight Check. After that, Jim demonstrates how to fly. Three flights are in a park and one flight is in a church atrium for demonstrating indoor flight.

Phantom Knowledge PHAN3DVD reviews

Phantom 3 Training (DVD) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have if buying a Phantom 3 I discovered Phantom Knowledge while researching the Phantom 3 on YouTube. After seeing the informative style of this companies YouTube productions... I purchased this training video. It was extremely enlightening and so helpful. I actually purchased this video prior to buying a Phantom 3 and I would recommend learning as much as you can prior to your purchase. This is too expensive of an investment for a hobby where you could destroy your bird with your first flight. I recommend buying this video prior to your Phantom 3 purchase and then watching it again after purchase. There is so much good information in this training video it will save you from losing your investment. As well as eliminating a lot of stress prior to your first flight. Well Done!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little disappointed What I have seen of the product it is OK, but for a professional videographer it is a little amateurish. However, my real gripe is the shipping. I am not a big UPS fan. They left my Phantom sitting on a wet porch while I was gone for the day is my latest gripe however this time my gripe is with B&H. They put this in a padded mailer envelope and UPS being UPS smashed the case. While the DVDs are fine my case is broken and won't close properly. My first gripe, oh well...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Resource This is an excellent resource to get you up and running very quickly - the video helps you to see step by step, and James puts this on a level to make it easy to follow and not quite as intimidating as the manual (but definitely read the manual!!! Use this as an additional resource). Money well-spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Best Buy This was a great purchase. You might be able to find most of the content on YouTube but the excellent menu content lets you quickly find what you want. James is a great teacher.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save you money Don't waste your money on this Blu-ray if you have a Phantom 3 Standard. CD did not cover one thing useful for the Standard version. To bad you can't get a refund. Wasted $

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK, but not necessary This is an OK video. There was nothing on the video that is not on the web from other DJI operators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A picture is worth a thousand words A picture is worth a thousand words.In terms of acquiring knowledge of our complex new technology, I can not think of a better example that demonstrates this adage than James Bendewald's instructional DVD Phantom Knowledge for the DJI Phantom.Documentation and user manuals are obviously important, but they can be very frustrating. Those who write them are ALREADY well familiar with the product and at times lack the perspective of a newbie who may need more to assimilate the material. Frankly, even after having read the Phantom's user manual for several weeks, the thought of sending this $$Drone to the skies Gave me the jitters.The Phantom Knowledge DVD gave me a visual perception of how to handle the basic and important aspects of flying the drone. James' instructional narrations are well presented, comprehensive and easy to understand.I played the DVD on my large TV screen, with all the Phantom equipment on a table in front of me. My Fear of Flying was soon replaced by an eagerness to go out there and do it. I have since then flown my Phantom successfully numerous times, and received high praise on the resulting videos.I figure that if studying the Phantom Knowledge DVD prevented even a minor beginner's crash of my Phantom, then I got my money's worth.
