    I want to. Weather has been blah. I need to look into it and see who owns it and if i can get permission. or even if theres a local place near by i can fly from and then fly over it.

    Thanks, I sent an email to the raceway about a month ago. They seem to own the land? Its a bit far 2 hours from me just to take a ride to see if I can get in and walk around the place

    My mother goes there for crafts shows, it was so cool to walk around and see the skeletons of rides and such.

    It has been a couple of years, but they still have events there. If you do a google map search you should be able to see. I dont think there were any gates or fences, but that does not mean they dont have police that come in and make sure nothing is going on.

    hello, just joined your facebook page yesterday. I'm just south of Hershey. I'm also going out toward Philadelphia Saturday to check out the Dartdrones classes. I just bought a phantom 3 pro...delivered 2 days ago. I've been wanting to get a drone for a while now, just finally pulled the trigger.

    Never knew the class was only about 10 minutes from my house. I've been flying RC aircraft for 30 years and MP's for 12, built my own way back when. Been flying the Phantoms for 3 years. I would have given you a free lesson if you made the drive

    I live not far from williams grove and had the drone out with no issues. The park is closed but you can get up the top section without issue. If anyone wants to get together and fly near Gettysburg send me a message

    I'm in York Haven PA, about 30 minutes from Carlisle. Would love to meet up as long as you don't mind having someone who's just learning!

    I took all three of the DartDrone courses back in the fall. I would say the courses were good but definitely not worth the money I paid to attend. Most of the information presented during the daylong course was stuff I found in the Phantom 3 manual. And the customer service is not good!

    I'm from Littlestown, PA(10 minutes south of Gettysburg). I requested to join the facebook page. Would be cool to meet up with some of you guys. I just purchased a P3S to see how I would like it and I'm now looking at getting a P3P or P4. I want to give them a little while to fix the issues to the P4 before I make a purchase.
