So I just received my new Octocopter 1555 from Screencopter a few days ago, and I thought I´d share a bit of my experience. Before buying my own drone, I spent hours looking through many many different websites and forums trying to find as much information as possible, so I hope that by sharing my personal experience I might be able to help other (future) pilots out there.
So, first impressions: the stability is amazing! This is my first drone, so I was a bit concerned about configuring the magnetic declination for the GPS position hold to work correctly, but with the instructions I received from Screencopter (and some help from a friend who has more experience with this), I was able to set the correct configurations for my region in France, and the results were incredible. When I activated the position hold, the octocopter stayed static in the air...completely!
So far, I´m really happy with the 1555. I´ll be doing more flying in the days to come, and post any useful information I find.
Also, I just want to use this opportunity to thank Antoni from screencopter for all his help. He knows his stuff, and has really helped me out with my first drone purchase, and all the questions I had. Thanks!
