    Yeah I know! I live in the inner circle of the TFR. I heard if they catch you, they will confiscate your drone.

    Hay guys, just got on and saw fellow flyers. Haven't got my bird jet, but do fly the P3A. With the president here, and the weather, nothing goes. Have been down in the dumps, too much going on and no time, haven't gotten to any of our drink club meetings. I will keep check on whats going on with you guys and perhaps hook up one day after the all clear is on. Im Ed, in Waipio, HI

    Hey Ed! I just received my Mavic this past Friday! Yeah but haven't flown it due to the President on the island. While waiting for my Mavic, I went ahead and bought the P3S since it was half off! I wanted practice on it before the Mavic. Let's meet up one day with Acrolog2! I live in Hawaii Kai.

    Aloha, Great, I have nothing going on till the end of next month, so looking to do something besides looking at 4 walls. That sounds good, now for the weather to be good, and I know that flying could be done down at Sandy Beach, which is a fly point but the wind is the thing.
    The wife is in Germany and got all kind time on hand.
    Keep in tune and lets hook up, sounds good, Give me heads up a day ahead.
    You can even contact me email: emoad1@me.com, and 8085543460
    Ibelong to a club here in Honolulu and also the AMA, so I’m informed with all the get stuff, etc. But sounds good, fly, lets do…

    I planned on flying here in Kona tomorrow, but the wind is maybe out of my league. I know the mavic can handle it, but I don't like it more than 15mph usually. If it's not to my liking I'll just wait til I get back to Oahu

    Be careful! Suppose to be windy on Oahu as well.
    If you do get to fly, lots open lava fields over there! Ha!

    Yea should make for lots of famous unsuitable landing areas" lol.
    I will be careful, likely will just tool around, usually less windy first thing in the morning anyway.

    Got mine in few days before xmas but didn't get to open it till after. Never had a drone before so I'm still learning how to fly the mavic. Turned off the GEO so I could have some air time in our backyard. Never flew higher than 50 ft or past our yard. I did learn how to take off and land by hand. Hard lesson learned, don't fly near big metal object like an SUV. Mavic will fritz with magnetic interference, guess a price to pay for small form factor. Crashed the mavic with hairline crack on two props and blade marks on my vehicle. Mavic still fly fine. I would really like to take it to Sandy's for the first sunrise but guess I can't take it anywhere else till potus is off the island.

    Replace those props man, don't chance it! Few bucks for props is good insurance.

    We have to abide by outer ring restrictions on Oahu. All model and hobby stuff. You can maybe be ok at Kaena point it looks like.

    Nothing yet. Seems like metal in the area has a huge impact on performance. Any metal objects near you?
