I'm just going to share a few close up photos and a bit of what I've encountered and learnt so far after flying it for a few times.
For more advance guide, do go over to their official Youtube channel, forums, and definitely checkout all the other advices and tips from professionals who have logged in tons of flight time. You can find them all online and especially on Youtube.
Took these videos during my first few flights. You can also watch my unboxing here , if you are so inclined.
First thing out of the box, I would want to know how to active the warranty. More specifically to know whether have I successfully activated it (or did I not?).
From my seller, he told me once you paired your drone with the DJI GO 4 App and creating an account to login and move forward with the process, that's when the warranty starts. I was quite surprised to hear this and later found out it is actually true.
DJI Warranty starts once you paired the drone and the app together with an online account.
So I've searched up and down to check whether my warranty has started yet online. Nothing works. Nothing on the DJI website itself that let you check the warranty works. So I ended up with three choices,
I tried the live chat and it works excellently. The customer service personnel who aided me was Harris, and he did a good job telling me when did my warranty started, and it is exactly the date I first created an account and run the app with the drone together.
This is no easy work, especially for a beginner like me. Cut to the chase, below are the easiest method I've tried.
Open the app and run the setup wizard before plugging it into the remote
Connect to the aircraft
Link with the aircraftautomatically if you have already done so once before, if not, just press on the blue button below
Make sure the battery level on both your drone and remote control is fully charged, or at least enough for you to make a safe flight.
You can also pair your Remote Control without going through the phone setup assistant / wizard, but I have lesser successions using this method. The steps are,
I really does not recommend the phone only Wi-Fi method, it is just way too dangerous for a beginner, myself included.
Connect to the aircraft
Wi-Fi Connectionand proceed to the final step
scan faillink, to do a manual connection.
Your drone will crash into you if you are not careful. You have been warned.
I believe most of you have read the guide to know what's a Beginner Mode, so I'll not dive into that. If you haven't already know, do go and read all the guides that you have on your hand.

Last but not least, fly safe and have fun guys!
