    Bay Area. I fly around SF and Oakland a lot since Alameda is mostly off limits.

    Helix, do you have a Mavic? I'm in Lowell as well. Would like to check it out?

    I have a Mavic and frequently bounce back and forth between NH and MA.. If I find my self in the Lowell area I will send you a PM MarkO. Was able to head down to Plymouth MA this weekend and fly over some beaches. 25MPH winds and the Mavic was able to fly out 3 miles and back with plenty of battery left to spare! Wanted to push it to the limit but the power plant was in the way!

    Cool. I live in Lowell, but also have a cabin in Thornton, NH. I'm on my 6th DJI but use them mostly for mapping. I was wondering how the mavic does mapping wise. I love the portability of it, but wondering if I should go with the P4 Pro. If you're ever in the area, pm me. Thanks!

    I use an app called Drone Deploy. Then I use a software program called Pix4D and import the images. Pix4D is a free program for the basic processing. It creates a 3D model. The whole process is somewhat involved.
    Are you up near Squam lake? I'm only about 20 minutes north of there when I'm at my cabin.

    Little south on Winnisquam lake. I wish Squam though, so much quieter and more serene. Also a better place to bass fish!
