    Bit late to the show but I'm from north of Grande Prairie with a P2 FPV and soon to add ground station. Also waiting for spring freezing my hands off in the meantime whenever I get the urge!

    Well I finally found another pilot here in Edmonton and we had a quick meet. The weather wasn't conducive to flying, but that's definitely next up on the agenda!

    Cool. But keep your altitudes in mind when flying around the city!

    Will do...I did take it up to around 350 feet and am always trying to keep it away from people...although the kids come running to me when they see it! :)

    Another flyer here from Calgary SW. Today is my 3rd day flying the Phantom Vision 2+. Here's a short vid of my flight this morning. https://vimeo.com/97449306 The goal is to improve my skills to able to fly in ATTI mode for smoother aerial videos. I am absolutely addicted to this thing.

    Edmonton here! We should arrange a meet at some point... :mrgreen:

    We should start sharing some good places to fly! I've been using Google Maps to hunt out places with decent success... Where around Edmonton is unique?

    Re: Alberta Flyers Group -winged.nuts- Calgary

    Hello from Calgary! Just got my 2+ last week and brought it down to Phoenix to get some photos and videos of the desert and the community. I'm able to easily survey the tips of the 40ft tall Saguaro cacti down here, which is an interest of mine. Will be back in Calgary nest week and am looking forward to trying out the 2+ back home!
