Don't call it a 'gator, it's a Ranger
I ended up with a DJI Mavic Mini off of Amazon. My goal is taking basic pictures not racing. I've got about $500 in it including a few extras that I've purchased after the initial order.
I have played with it some on a table and watched several online videos. The pictures and videos that I took seem to work as expected but of course, are not very exciting being the drone was on a table.
I haven't had the courage to actually fly it yet. I don't think trying it inside would be wise for my first flight. I considered trying outside yesterday since the snow had melted some but I couldn't think of any wide open spaces that would be dry. It looked real easy on the videos until I watched one with an experienced pilot and a first-timer. The first-timer had a lot of trouble. I'm thinking a wide open field on a calm. warm day would be best for my first flight.
