Enjoy your Mavic and stay warm! It sounds pretty chilly in WI. Are you in WI or IL?..or maybe you live right on the stateline? :cool:

Not at all, muddy and cold. Just got the Mavic running, looking to get a HDMI tablet and maybe Headplay googles before flying. About you? You from the Midwest as well?

Palatine, Illinois - Ready

Palatine here as well! Mavic arriving next week! Wanna have a drone meet up (not in person, let's have the drones meet up at the water tower on NW HWY by Wendy's. I'll come in from the south and stay south of the tower at some certain time, and you can come in from the north of the tower and we can get some video from Mavic to Mavic in flight!

California, not Central America? From what I am reading, California is busy making it more and more difficult to find places to fly. Hopefully that's not true! Where abouts did you fly?

Yes I did find out California city are anti-drones but I went out to Lookout Point, Corona Del Mar, CA. Here is a little video I shot there but did not do any post processing of video except editing. I did have a Polar Pro ND8 PL lens on my Mavic when I took this video. Video was taken about 15 minutes before sunset.

I just looked up those goggle/glasses! Wow, that looks really interesting. I don't think my eyes and wallet can deal with them, however they look really good for the purpose of staying legal while flying FPV without a spotter!
