I too am from rochester. I am new, now you are not. I have been doing a lot of flying on the canal in pittsford. You found any nice spots to fly? As soon as it's not so hot I'm gonna go fly downtown.
Got any tips?
Welcome to our Forum, from Hauptmann in the friendly skies of Texas!
You'll find that flying your Mavic Pro or any DJI quad is so easy. They practically fly themselves. This can lead to overconfidence.
Read the manual, and be conservative at first. Practice using the “Find My Drone” App. Chances are you will crash and perhaps lose your bird. Don't wait until that happens to learn how to recover a lost drone.
Lots of good stuff to shoot throughout Upstate NY. Incidentally, my granddaughter starts college at Nazareth this fall, in musical theatre. Can't wait to come up there to watch her perform.
Whenever you need help, there are over 100,000 of us from around the world to assist you as you gain experience and grow as a pilot and photographer.
When I fly my new mavic mini straight up to 100m I can clearly see the Nazareth campus. It is a beautiful campus, a great school and they just built a nice new performing arts center. Congrats to your granddaughter. I am happy to fly daily in this area.
I highly recommend taking time while you're here to investigate the genesee river area. In downtown there are waterfalls with old buildings and tunnels around them and railroad tracks crossing directly over them (called high falls) if you drive 40 minutes due south on i390 you reach letchworth state park where the river has carved a rather large gorge and there's tons of depression era public works stone structures around the park including a **** and rapids. I hope to make it there soon (I don't drive)
