I'd love to do some flying with fellow MavicPilots (or any drone) in my area.

Any takers?

I also live in Roseville,let me know when and where
Cool! I've been chatting with @Navone in PM, trying to work out a date. There's a nice spot up in Nevada City, where I live, but we might all want to connect in Auburn. Any ideas? I know a good spot above the north fork of the American River in Auburn. Might be a good starting point.

Got any favorite places to go?

I’m interested, I am in Lincoln and it gets boring quick flying over the same fields out in this area. Just got my first drone a few weeks ago, Mavic Air.

Sounds like we have a party on our hands :). This is for everyone 8n the thread:

The two places I had in mind for a meet-up are both *in* the very outer radius of NFZs. If you guys don't mind doing the authorization process, then we're good. If any of you have a nice spot outside of an NFZ, please post it.

There's a cool spot in Colfax, outside of any NFZs, along the railroad tracks.

Anyone want to suggest a day/time?

Sounds good, everyone. My schedule is messed up this week, but fairly open afterwards. Let's keep posting till we reach a consensus :)

Can you post a few map links to the spots on the AR? I'd like to check 'em out.

Here's a spot in Colfax, along the train tracks (non NFZ): Google Maps

It's where I shot this tilt-shift clip - we would just have to be cognizant of I-80, which you can see in the clip:

I’m going to play around this evening with some of the different flight modes. I will be off of 12 Bridges ave in Lincoln this evening if anyone wants to join. There’s a some big open areas out there and just outside of the NFZ.

I'd love to - but can't tonight. Please let me know the next time you head that way. One thing I don't get much of, living in the foothills, is wide open spaces.
