    Hey there - the Central Florida topic covers a huge swath :)

    I am in the Champion's Gate (I-4/Hwy 27) area. New to Phantom's and have a Phantom 2 3D Gimbal with GoPro and a GS.

    Let me know if you're in this area and would like to get together to fly.

    I have found a really cool flying area (In terms of perfect landing/take off areas and WIDE open field) It's a subdivision that never got built and has all paved roads etc.

    Anyway - let me know!

    :D

    Heh. Believe it or not dude, we are "neighbors".
    Look up "Osceola Flyers club".
    They have a nice big flying field owned by the county.
    A 500+ foot runway for planes and at least a half a mile of fairly flat open area to fly in.
    But you need to be an AMA member and a club member to use it.
    I live just up the road from it.

    Cool - I thought about joining when I was just flying Heli's - but never really felt confident enough in my ability. I'll give it another look.

    I used to boat all the time in the big lake that comes right up to that area...

    Thanks for posting! I will be visiting this area soon. What is the location if this spot you are referring to? Have you had any issues (with people) flying around the Kissimmee area? Thanks!

    I have a PH2v+ and am located in Dr. Philllips area. Hot weather is killing me so I fly early and late over here
