    I'll get a group started for pilots in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. Would love to hear who else is flying and from where!

    Thanks, happy to be here! Looking forward to meeting more people in the community as I enter the hobby myself.

    Thus far I've begun to teach myself flight basics on a Hubsan 107D FPV, but I'm still very much a beginner! I'm in this hobby to learn and apply though!

    Hello, Currently awaiting an Amazon order for the Fly More placed on 11/08. Maybe we could meet up in Omaha and someone could show me the ropes!

    Single digits has me grounded . Do you use drones for your business?

    Yes single digits can be a problem. I just walked out of the office and ran a drone flight with Litchi just so see how it compared to my DJI 3 Pro. It worked great.

    Techinically I do NOT use it for business. But I want to put some drone flights into our videos online, so that's why I bought it.

    Smart move. So you flew it this morning? I'm a bit hesitant, but if you had success.....

    Not today yet. Have some stuff to do. Might fly this afternoon though. Still nervous about letting it get beyond say a block or so as you can't see it anymore.
    But all in all, much better and easier to use than the Phantom 3.

    I stuggled with that too. I just finally went to the "Upload a File". I had previously clicked on the "Image" icon, but it wanted an URL and I just gave up.

    Good luck guys! Let me know if you all have any questions, it would be good to network 'advice groups' locally too. Or if you want to meet up to do some flying, I'm up for anything unstructured or planned alike!

    Gutsy. Pretty close to the trees. But them I'm, a little nervous on that as I lost my P3 (temporarily) in my neighbors 63' Silver Maple.

    Hmm, I went to upload my video, but it won't upload an MP4 file,or at least I can't do it. Is there some magic?
