This is acrobatic mode only.

Should i start tuning stable mode or do i need to continue tuning acrobatic?

Great first flight!

I'd recommend spending many more batteries in acro before experimenting with stable modes. Tuning them can get a little hairy sometimes, so being knowledgable about how your quad handles will only help you that much more. Plus, acro is just more fun ;)

When you can fly acro for an entire battery without setting it down once, you'll be ready for just about anything. Get that puppy outside and break some props!

And get it up in the air .. Hanging out so close to the ground , you are flying on a cushion of air generated by the prop downwash called 'ground effect' ... the flight dynamics down there can be very different then when it is in clean air.

So far it looks good .. And dont forget to HAVE FUN !!!

Hey kevo,
I see you are from Suffolk county!! I'm right next door Nassau county :) well I am having a lot of fun but I am worried about crashing. I do not have much experience flying so i am learning as I go. Will increase the height tomorrow and see the difference. I am currently working on the helicopter with friends on campus so I always worry about people around. Quadcopter always brings a crowd :)

Thanks again,
