Hey, I'm in the Bay Area. I've been flying my two Inspires for the last 1.5 years or so. Waiting on my Mavic.
Right on! I'm based out of Oakland and fly with a couple other guys from the South Bay. I have 2 inspired as well. My Mavic should be here Wednesday!!! Let me know when you get yours and let's try and link up.
I'll be sure to check that SLACK group!Sounds great man, let's link up...
There is a channel in the DroneHome community on Slack for the Bay Area to chat in realtime with others. Slack requires an invite (it's here DroneHome on Slack) and the channel is #region-sf-bay-area (what's cool is Slack has web and apps for iPhone and Android)
There is also a Facebook group for us locals so we can easily stay in touch.
You should join both!
Went to Baylands Park Yesterday. Nice open space to practice
Baylands is nice to kind of learn how to fly. But after a few times you'll hate flying there. You have to worry about others flying, plus there's a lot of areas you shouldn't be flying (too high and you're in the way of aircraft, also freeway, ballparks, etc). But mostly, it's kind of boring footage.
I go there when I'm craving to get the birds in the air, but can't find anywhere else to fly.
Where are some places you suggest Kevin?
