    I just got my P3s about a week ago, and I've been flying a few times now. I've already made one video, and I've got footage from a few other locations already. I made this one at a local nature center.

    Anyone else around here know of any other good flying locations?

    Welcome to the area.

    FWIW - check into any UAS bans in Montgomery County,

    Some good news on that front (at least for now); Maryland recently passed a bill that bans county and local governments from enacting any regulations on drones. Only the state government can regulate them now.

    I know Meadowside - it's not far from me. It's a popular field trip location for local elementary school kids. Looks like Meadowside is only a couple hundred yards from the edge of the DC FRZ, so you're good as far as that goes. I wouldn't try to fly south though.
