    Colorado Springs?

    Thanks, Jim! Your advice is noted. Altitude is not an issue for us. I had not considered the effect on batteries, but your comment makes sense with the thinner air. Fortunately, I have 3 batteries ready to go. I'll keep an eye on the battery gauge. Typically when I fly for real estate, I'm...

    Colorado Springs?

    Hi, Dave … I have a Mavic Pro, so my advice may not be totally accurate for the Air. I spent considerable time researching tablets to replace the intended use of a cell phone … much larger screen. Of course this was nearly 2 years ago. I chose the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 … at the time it seemed...

    Colorado Springs?

    Just moved from So Cal to "the Springs" … I'm a Pro Phorgrapher who uses my drone for various gigs, but especially real estate.

    Hi guys! I am presently living in SoCal, but will begin traveling to the Colorado Springs area on a regular basis (for work) later this year as my wife and I prepare to make a retirement (?) move permanently towards the end of 2108. I am a professional photographer and do a lot of...

    Hi ... sounds fun, but I think I'll stick closer to home. I fly from my apartment complex's central park area early in the morning before most are up and around ... 6:30-7am. Especially on Sat & Sun mornings I fly out over a very large construction project when no one is working ... and...

    Orange County, CA area

    Quite close ... 33°38'32.51"N, 117°44'48.08"W For me, mornings are best (at least here) since there are fewer people out and about (joggers, dog walkers, kids in strollers) Also, I can walk over to the best launch area. How about you ... live close to where you fly? Yours looks like very...

    Hello from Southern California (Irvine)

    Thanks! BTW ... I will be traveling often to Colorado Springs for work & pleasure, and will take my Mavic at times. Towards the end of 2018 my wife and I will complete our move there. I'll definitely want to connect with other pilots there also.

    Hi ... presently I am flying out of the central park at our apartment complex near the El Toro "Y" (HW5 & 405). There is a very large construction project next door (Los Olivos 2) which gives plenty of space especially early in the morning on Sat/Sun before most are up. There is definitely...

    Hello from Southern California (Irvine)

    Received my Mavic Pro about 2 weeks ago, and have flown it about half dozen times now on test flights. Initially I used my Samsung Galaxy S8+ with the remote ... and it works really well ... it all boots quickly and intuitively once setup. Of course the screen is small, so have now upgraded to...
