    To my fellow North - OTP Atlanta Phantom fliers,

    Who is up for meeting somewhere this weekend (Aug 2nd or 3rd)? The place I like to fly is a huge soccer field complex in Duluth just off Peachtree Industrial, 1/2 mile north of the State Bridge/Pleasant Hill Rd. intersection. Google Maps location = https://www.google.com/maps/place/D...2!3m1!1s0x88f5981d72a575a3:0x8526c08a3ce2d8e3.

    On weekends, the best time to fly is at sunrise until the soccer teams show up. Alternatively, at sunset after they all leave.

    I'm open to other locations as well, but I think it would be really cool to get 5 or ten Phantoms in the air at the same time.

    Who's up for it?

    - Jeff (Johns Creek, GA)

    Re: Dunwoody/S. Springs/Roswell/Alpharetta/Johns Creek - Mee

    Just saw your post. My business partner and I own a land brokerage company a bought a P2V+ a few months ago. Have had a number of short but successful flights. Have videoed property listing and sold it right away. Also had 2 flyways and the 2nd one resulted in shipping back to DJI for repairs. Have it back now and anxious to pick up where we left off. Would love to hook up with another Phantom enthusiast. I live in P'tree Corners and my office is in Roswell. Send me am email to rmvintageusa@gmail.com
    Thanks
    Ron

    I watched some of your YouTube videos and we're practically neighbors! I almost saw my house in one of them. I have a Phantom 2 Vision+ V2 as well as a new project quad I'm building from the ground up on a Sky Hero Spyder chassis. We should definitely get together.

    Hey guys. Just got my P3A a few weeks ago. I'm up in Alpharetta around Windward Parkway. I'm trying to be very careful of the places I fly just starting out. Have you found any good places to fly in the metro area?

    Wherever seems interesting. Riverside park has a lot of good spots and room to maneuver.

    Are there many people there? I try not to fly around by-standard. Are there better days / times of the day ... to fly?

    It depends on when you go. It's a big enough park that there are usually empty areas almost any time though. Daytime during the week is great if you can swing it.

    Morning everyone,
    I am a new owner of a Vision 2 + and purchased it to do some terrain mapping of a farm I have in Jamaica. I live in Johns Creek close to StateBridge and Medlock.
    I would like to get some pointers in terrain mapping and recommendations of what software and apps best work with the V2+.
