Lucky lucky me. Only 4 Jlens blimps in US and 2 are parked right outside my front door

    Never cared to much about those ugly blimps but now that I took to drone flying as a hobby they just bother me. Its like they are sitting there watching me. Waiting for me to hit that 401 ft mark. I usually fly out in a school area that has 2 schools side by side so the open space is very large. Every time a car pulls in I think its the Po Po coming to check me out. Posted this in the P3 section as it just so happened to be the bird I am flying currently. Maybe it should be moved

    Where are you thatchy are utilizing two of them? Lots of nefarious action in your part of the states?

    I have no idea why they think its such a big deal. I live not to far from the Aberdeen proving grounds/Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland. Sometimes I feel like I can hit them with a rock especially when they are wheeling them in. They are supposed to be flying @ 10,000 feet but I think they are like 3 football fields long

    Funny... I had an open opportunity to fly this morning (hasn't come too frequently lately...), and I hear a funny sound in the air, kinda like a helicopter... so I look up... it's a Met Life blimp! Grrrr... I live about 40 minutes from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, so I guess the blimp is for the game tomorrow, probably getting some airtime in the day before the game... ugh... Oh well, another moment gone...

    The thing flew around for about 15-20 minutes, then it was gone, then 10 minutes later it came back. By then I was screwed for time. I've had my P2 since July and maybe have 6-7 flights so far... ugh... it's killing me... and a part of me wants to sell what I have to upgrade to a P3. So then I'll have a P3 sitting around... lol...

    I'm making a point to fly now. Once I got the P3. That's been sitting for a bit. Got a great deal on an inspire so need to get the P3 flying. My metal detectors sat and sat. Planned to use them alot this year but hurt both knees on a ladder 2 months before detector season. Been hurting a lot and detecting is usually a half day minimum of time consumption

    Good grief, man That's the most depressing thing I've read, since noon. ;-) I try to fly that often in a single week here, usually bud. But I have numerous places that I go. And find new ones all the time. Infact, when I am on a SpYder RYde, I intentionally look for any new and interesting places and or unusual things, I wish to film, or capture in photos. It becomes an obsession or quest. I'm on a mission. Hehe
    You need to get out more often , and fly.
