    Looking to connect with other Phantom pilots based in Colorado. I am in the north Denver metro area.

    I live in Colorado Springs. Around the middle of Feb. I should be getting a FC40. Perhaps later we can get together.

    Sounds like a plan. I would love to hit Garden of the Gods at sunrise assuming its permissible.

    Are you familiar with meetup.com? There us a group called Aerial Media Pros that all have multi rotor rcs mostly dji gear. We had a fly (so to speak) two weeks ago in Boulder.

    Free to join and recommend it.

    Sorry that I did not get back to you earlier, but the grand kids kept me busy. I did check out the MEET UP website. Before I join, iwould like to get the machine, do the upgrades as needed and then get a few hours in the air. That way I can ask some intelligent questions when I get to the group.

    If I can attend the Feb. meeting I will do so.

    I live in Denver and I'm signed up to the group "Littleton DJI Phantom Quadcopters" in MEETUP.com.
    I would love to get together to exchange ideas.
    Garden of the Gods would more than likely be off limits though it would be a beautiful place to fly.

    The Littleton group may also be in my future, I just haven't gotten there yet.

    I received my FC-40 on Saturday. Got it put together. Charged the battery and cranked it up. I held on to the landing gear to be sure it didn't go anywhere, so everything works. So far, so good. When the weather clears up a little, I will try the first flight. :D

    I am Fountain, Colo.
    I am new to this. So new that the first flight it attacked me.
    I am better than that now. I have the Phantom I.
    I have a Sony Action cam that I have taken some shots with from the Phantom.
    It is lots of fun.

    Still scared about taking it too high. Gets very small way up there.

    Hi Michael,

    I live more in the Security area than in Colorado Springs proper. At the present time, I still am learning the controls and trying to read the manual. My camera for the FC-40 was shipped as a 2nd package and hopefully will be here on Wednesday. Something else to learn.

    More later,

    Jerry

    I joined the Littleton club and our first meet is tomorrow at Decovan park. My phantom is sick and getting shipped in for repair, but I will have a kong 450 to fly. See you all there!

    I'll be in the Gunnison area by May. I'm interested if they will let you fly at Garden of the Gods. I think wording it correctly would help... RC helicopter... aerial photography... etc

    No one has said anything yet.
    Of course I keep it away from Rocks, Plants, and People. In that order.
