Every session of flying with the Phantom begins with a little dance to the drone gods. Along with connecting it wirelessly to its book-sized controller and a phone or tablet, you also need to hold it to the sky and spin in a circle to help it calibrate its GPS. Then you clutch it to your chest and turn it like a steering wheel. Different colored lights flash to let you know when the process is complete.
