    Any Phantom Pilots in the Central California region, say Monterey to Santa Barbara, that would like to have a regular meet-up? Talk gear, talk problems and solutions, and do lots of flying?

    Maybe the Monterey area would work for me. http://www.centralcoastdrone.com I've been flying Phantoms for about a year and know another Phantom Pilot here on the Peninsula. I'm mainly interested in aerial media using the Phantom as my camera platform.
    What did you have in mind?

    Hey mntnmike,

    Where are you located? I'm in Santa Barbara and would be into getting a group together around here if you are still interested?

    Cheers,

    Just got my first DJI Phantom 2 Vision + a couple days ago. I've been too nervous to fly the thing after everything I read online. Lol. I live in Arroyo Grande, just south of San Luis Obispo. Wouldn't mind getting to know local flyers and share thoughts and experiences.

    Ps - my first flight is tomorrow after work. I think I've studied it enough now. <gulp>

    I am in Lompoc and fly at the local RC race car track, it has two paintball courses, adjacent to a local city park and its on private property. Plenty of open space and the owner of the RC track, paintball courses and property is drone friendly.

    I am interested too.....

    Most weekends, I travel from Lompoc to Atascadero. My Phantom is always in my truck.

    Sometimes I leave from Lompoc on Saturday morning and return Sunday afternoon/evening, and other times I leave Lompoc on Sunday morning and return Sunday afternoon/evening.

    I'm in Santa Maria and would love to get some people to fly with. I didn't see any dates and was wondering if you all ended up doing something.

    No dates have been set. Where do you fly in Santa Maria? I am always looking for new places to fly.
