    ...your friends, family members, and/or or significant others to fly your Phantom (2) (Vision [+]) or Inspire 1?

    Or is the Tx for your hands only?

    No kids, but if there's a big, open area and they keep it nearby, then sure! But since I got my second remote I just give them that…

    Hell no! I let someone fly my P2 once. He had been flying for a long time and he owned a P1. Within 5 minutes he crashed it. Never again. They can look but can't touch.

    It means the sticks on the controller the part you use to fly it

    For my hands only at this point. But I did send a suggestion in to DJI to implement a "trainer mode" so that the second TX can be used to fly the craft so I can then get the guys to try safely while still being able to regain control at anytime, like with any other RC model.

    For now I sometimes give them camera control but they usually have no idea of what they're doing, so I get bored flying a thing with a camera that looks all over the place and end up taking control back and just showing them nice lines and shots I do myself. Usually impresses them more too, and my 5-axis coordination with the gimbal tilt wheel gets better each time.

    I let people fly my Inspire all the time. But that is also part of my job to promote the product. I am close enough that I can take the Tx if necessary and I give them a brief ground school as well.

    Yes, I gave to a mate and he flew around a bit in GPS mode, he got the hang of it quickly and it was fun watching at the same as being nervous, like being a passenger while my girlfriend's driving. :D
