    In San Diego I know of a few places of interest for shooting videos/photos, but not all are P3 Friendly. So I was thinking now that I have two Batteries thank you Advexure, its flying time. but were to shoot? Not The Back Yard I'm so freaking sick of that.

    This morning I loaded up G.E. and clicked the photo option in the bar and started looking at the photos shared, and found a plethora of new locations of interest right in my area some were refreshing places lost and some new Ideas to for shooting. I'm not ready for City flying yet like Balboa Park as I'm way to new for that.
    So here are a few locations I'm going to try and shoot today.
    Hope this works for others as well.

    This should do me for today....

    So Yeah!! Google Earth really comes in handy for planning outings of some cool things and places you may not know about of forgot about in your area.

    Hope you like the tip! and have a great day.

    PS: because I know were I'm going to be, I have the maps all cached in the app too.

    I use it all the time and actually got banned off a fb phantom page over a year ago for sharing this tip, it didn't help that they didn't have a sense of humour when I told them I was lining up this as my next shot, the control tower of LAX ;)

    That's what got me banned from that Fb page because nobody read it and went on a major attack. I couldn't stop laughing.
