    So far, I've flown the past two Saturdays, and will take my FC40 out at sunrise tomorrow if the rain stops.

    Not as much as I'd like. Weather, work, chores, family activities and hunting take priority.

    I do find excuses to get some stick time. :lol:
    I'm glad you're having fun Youngblood.

    Every chance I get. I have the phantoms in the boot of my car and will stop somewhere suitable
    The weather here in the UK is really not suitable during this time to fly - most I can manage is once a week when it is a bit sunny and not raining .. :cry: :cry:

    I got scared off for many reasons but mostly because I was just to stupid in all ares of ground/personal and flight.

    Then I didn't worry about it, I'm still stupid but everyone around me knows this now and lend me the grace to fly, so.

    A lot, my skills haven't improved but the RTH switch still works, this is good for every reason ;)

    Every chance I get. Sometimes on a whim, I will go outside & take it up for 5 or so mins, just to get a fix:)

    Usually twice a week, would like to fly more often but not enough time with other commitments

    3 batteries means an hour of flying that I can fit in almost every day.

    Well, I USED to fly every day, except when the wind was terrible, but I lost my bird last Thursday, due to poor planning and the excitement that FPV generates.

    Trying now to spend a few more days searching diligently, then if no cigar, deciding what to do...

    Happy and safe flying to everyone else ;)

    Not very often. I try to fly in the best conditions possible - Low wind, average temp and dry ground. I also don't like to fly just for fun. I like to fly if it looks like a good idea to do so. On average I'd say I fly 2 - 4 times a month.

    Every day that the wind isn't blowing too hard, which this time of year, in the desert, isn't very often. :cry:

    Not as much as I used to. I still mange two or three batteries worth in a week. I am more interested in trying to find new areas to fly in because the scenery around here has gotten boring now. Just how many videos do I need of our neighborhood? Besides if I fly too often here eventually someone will ***** about it. The world is full of aholes and I would rather avoid as many as I can.

    Not often as I would like (I.e. weather, job, and so forth). :|

    Flew yesterday, flying today.

    Give me a break, the weather finally cleared. :)

    But generally I fly whenever I get a chance, which is not every day I'm afraid.
    In the summer I fly practically every evening since I can take off from my balcony and fly over the beach or lake.
    I am lucky that I don't have to drive to a location just to fly.
