    Hello fello pilots, Dan P here, new owner of a Phantom 2, and I'm simply blown away. I started with some easy photo stuff, and recently I took it out to a large open area and started running some laps. This thing is a ton of fun to fly fast as well! I've got a silly idea, what if we were to host a get together that included a obstacle course made with hoops to fly thru and such, and several pilots try to complete the course as quickly as possible with similar quads for awards? You could require the pilot to perform a wide variety of challenges, such as pick up something with a hook, then drop it in target area, etc!! I'd use those long clown baloons to make obstacles, pop one you get DQ'd! How about some sort of quad copter olympics? Is this already being done? Red bull needs some wild new or Rotorsports! I like that word, google shows it belongs to a lot of Mazda RX7 shops but we can use it for a new sport!

    Anyone interested?
