    My neighbor said there was another Drone in the neighborhood, but I never saw one. Well yesterday was walking my dog at the end of my block and I heard a Phantom.

    Walked to where I thought the controller was and sure enough a guy with a new Phantom 3 Pro. His wife and kid were there enjoying the flight. Even though he had a P2 before this, he said he wasn't that good of a flyer. Saw him use auto-land which worked well. Be nice to not be the only Phantom flyer around here.

    Looks like this hobby is finally catching on.

    I've seen a number of flyers in the forum from around Florida, and even as close as Tampa (30 miles away). So far I'm the only one I know of in the St. Petersburg beaches area. If there were more I might start a local club!

    It's funny I've never seen one other than my own yet!
    Once or twice people nearby have seen one flying and asked later if it was me - but it wasn't - so they are out there.
    Thing is the flights are relatively brief so chances of actually being in the right place at the right time are slim.
