    I live in the University Area of Charlotte and I just got into the hobby with a 1.1.1 phantom with a recently installed tarot gimbal W/GoPro3+ Black. Fpv gear soon to come!

    Anyone live around/near?

    I just got my Vision 2+ a couple of weeks ago and have been flying it down here in Wesley Chapel, just north of Waxhaw. We are probably around 30 minutes from your location. Have you received all of your gear and been flying? I've logged around 20-30 hours in the neighborhood and local schools. Have you found any good areas to fly?

    I am close to Charlotte. It is great not to be the only Phantom pilot in North Carolina anymore. :)

    Hey Fpvpilot, I'm sorry that I didn't see your reply until just now. I'm probably around 15-20 minutes from JAARS - we should get together and fly sometime! PM me when you get a chance and hopefully we can set something up.

    Pretty awesome photo? Did you do any editing to the photo?

    And where do you normally fly?

    Thanks? ;)

    Yes, I did a lot of editing. I've been practicing around Rural Hill and of course downtown close to Fraiser Park. You?

    Sure. That would be fun. My rig is actually all stock except for the camera which I’m having to replace since I crashed into a parking lot at full speed on a windy day. Hopefully I’ll be up and flying again soon.

    One question. Do you know who did this? I live next to the stadium but I wasn’t in town when this happened nor would I be stupid enough to fly into the stadium during a game anyway. Just trying to figure out who.

    Hey guys I live down in York. I've had my Vision + for about 2 months now and fly / practice out in my front yard. The neighbor across the street has a big back yard and there's a big pond over there too. Decent open area to practice some. I gotta get out of the neighborhood and get creative with this thing. :D

    Just south of Charlotte, Phantom 2 with GOPRO 4 black. Using the country fields for practice. Fun and addicting!

    I'm in the Lake Wylie area and am looking for a potential partner for my aerial photography business. Either a full-on business partner or just someone that can assist with the flying/videoing/editing, etc. If anyone here is interested, PM me. Thanks!

    I never noticed this post until this morning. Like the OP, I am in the University area of Charlotte.
