B367 - I fly all over. Mostly wherever my kids are playing, like soccer or baseball parks. I also fly at the Wahoo Stadium some. I go a lot to my family lake house in Alabama and do a lot of chasing tubes and jetskis.

Marg2 - restrictions on P'Cola Beach are: Gulf Islands National Seashore!

Just East of Portafino where the seashore starts to the last parking lot on Ft Pickens rd, just before you enter the seashore are allowed.

The SRIA is NOT part of the GINS, so flying is allowed. No laws preventing yet in P'cola.

Do you have one yet? Do you want to meet up and see it fly before purchasing?

I don't currently have an editing solution. I just take the raw footage and store it for now. I'm planning a few flights over the new 3 mile bridge project soon also. Maritime park is cool to fly over. I haven't flown much in Milton due to the lack of interesting places.

I have done quite a few flights at Ft Morgan, Battleship Park, and Mobile Bay. It is interesting how Alabama welcomes drones whereas Florida is full of pansies who think drones are dropping bombs and have x-ray vision or something.
