Practice makes perfect. That's all there's to it.

Yes, buy yourself a $30 toy drone and learn the ropes, crash it dozens of times, who cares right? Once it's a goner, buy a new one and keep improving. Make all your beginner's mistakes on this cheapo, so you don't make them on your DJI later on.

By the way, you'll still make mistakes on your DJI later on, but at least by then you've skewed statistics a bit in your favor.

I had some scrapes with my DJI drones, but I've still got my Phantom Vision and it still flies, though it's been superseded by my Mavic Air now.

Incidentally, high-end drones are actually easier to fly, because they're much smarter than the toys. But this only applies after you've taken the time to understand their software, safety features, fail-safe systems etc.
