    Not from Portland, just saying hi. Cool pic. I too went from p2v+ to mavic (as far as my prebuilt rigs), and I agree, very different!!! Only bought new because I didn't want to spend 200 bucks to buy the new wifi module for the p2 lol.

    Enjoy.

    Dave.

    Funny i did the exact same. My first drone was a p2vision plus that had no cam or gimbal. I put a gopro on it, then realized what it cost to buy the cam versus what a new one complete cost ($300 new) so i decided to go all in for the mavic and skip the phantom series all together.

    Im just getting my feet wet now but I can tell this will be my main money pit hobby for a long time moving forward. Im already plotting out how to get an inspire 2 lol.

    I just ordered the mavic today and they guaranty shipment by jan 18th now that they are caught up with back orders.

    It would be cool to get with some other mavic pilots for a session... maybe learn some new things. Or do a group collaborated video of some local event?

    eugene here...

    I received my drone yesterday and missed out on the great weather from the weekend for flying. Looks like it's going to be pretty rainy for the next several days! :(

    I'm across the river in Vancouver. I only have a toy drone now but I'll be joining the Mavic crew when DJI decides it wants to ship it out to me!

    My Mavic has arrived and I've tried to squeeze in a couple flights during this nasty weather.

    Anyone want to get together at some point?

    I'm in Hillsboro. Just received my Mavic last week but have been grounded due to weather. It would be great to get together with other pilots in the area especially since this is my first drone.

    Today was a much better day to fly! Unfortunately my ND filters won't pass the gimbal initialization so I have to get some new ones...

    Tomorrow, heading to St Helens

    Yes! Was a much better day today. I did 3 or 4 flights around my neighborhood at 60m elevation. I love the Magic, it did great. However, I took it up to 120m one time straight up and on that flight my Android DJI App kept crashing. I was able to bring it back down manually, but it was frightening all the same. Once I had it on the ground, I rebooted my phone and it was fine after that. Not sure on what is up there. Will need to do some research. I think the RTH will still work on the controller without the APP running.

    Nice to finally have a nice weather weekend!

    1st drone video. Not the most exciting video but it sure gets me excited to do more with it!

    Thanks! Just use Premiere CC, pretty basic adjustments. I'm going to Cabo in a couple weeks and I'm going to try to make a 'fancier' video.
