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.

Phantom 3 Training (Blu-ray Disc) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great way to learn about the Phantom 3 and keep it safe Before taking my Phantom 3 out for the first time, I wanted to get some training outside the manual that came with it. I found Phantom Knowledge to be a great value for the money. Lessons are well explained, and they are updated regularly. I even had a couple of questions and contacted the trainer by email and he was able to give me additional information that helped me decide on upgrades. There is no way to explain the difference this training has made, I feel safer flying the drone, more confident in my flying abilities and I am able to produce some incredible video and photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT, WORTH PURCHASING I viewed several Youtube video's but none were as detailed and well thought out as Phantom 3 Training. Worth every bit of the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get the Video! This is my 4th Phantom, (1, 2, 2+) and this is not only the best but most complicated. This video really helps out with all the features of this new bird.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money Very disappointing. I can't recommend this video. It is out of date, and not comprehensive. Some of the explanations are lacking details that left me hanging. As a beginner, I needed to learn as much as possible before going out and flying for the first time. This training video can be hard to watch at times because the speaker is not well prepared and his tone, sorry to say, will bore you to tears. Watch and study the official DJI lessons on Youtube instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful More information than I expected. DJI, manufacturer of the Phantom 3 has made changes in the firmware since the original video was produced. The video has been update with the changes by alerting the viewer with a bold graphic at the bottom of the screen indicating the change, and what you need to do with the update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Training Video for Phantom 3 I think this is the best training video for a Phantom avaialble. I have watched many. I like this one the best. It is easy to understand. It is well put together and very easy to follow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Phanton Drone Training Video This is a good product for the price. The presenter does a good job of explaining to someone who has absolutely no knowledge of drones. But if anyone has ever flown a drone, you may find parts of this too basic. However,. there are other parts that are valuable information. The presenter gives some tips that he's learned that you probably will not find anywhere else. Also, the manufacturer of this product is very accessible and accommodating. This disk did not load on my computer. Support information appears inside the package. The manufacturer immediately sent me out another disk that worked on my computer. And he did this without me having sent back the disk I had yet. He is a trusting person. I immediately sent back the disk that did not work. This is a very good product for basic knowledge. and the price is very cheap for the information you will get. It's worth every penny because the alternative is to crash an expensive drone. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because I have a Phantom 3 Pro 4K drone, and the drone in the video appeared to be a previous model. It looks like there have been changes made to more recent drone versions. So it may be wise for the video to be updated in the future.
