I got my BIL a Dominator 2.0 drone from Radio Shack for Christmas, but I liked it so much I bought one for myself.

It's taken me a couple of weeks to get up to speed, but flying it is the best fun I have had in a while.

I got my kids one for Christmas, but I've had just as much fun flying it as they have.

Check out this drone story from 60 minutes. Fast forward to about the 14 minute mark.

I've put in a tree once, luckily only about 15-20' was able to get it down with a saw pole.

My new hobby. Got my teenage son one for Christmas and we both love flying it and taking vids/ pics. I started out with a beginner one, the Toprace TR-Q511. Definitely going to work my way up to the Parrot bebop or similar, very soon.

I figured out yesterday that either the instructions for the nose up/down trim buttons are wrong or mine was cross-wired at the factory.

So the right arrow button was actually trimming the nose up instead of down and mine tended to drift backwards in a head wind.

Now the thing can make some pretty decent airspeed and flies more like a real helo or airplane.

I would check your drone's pitch attitude when you work the trim buttons in a hover to make sure yours isn't cross-wired like mine is.

Getting the nose pitch trimmed right and pushing the right joystick in to activate the higher throttle mode will give you more control and make flying it much more fun.
