    Hi there, Rigger.
    I'm over here in Destin. I haven't actually purchased a Phantom yet, but will own one before too long.
    Just checking in and doing my research etc. for now.

    I'm in Milton, let me know when you have your Phantom. Good to know that there is someone close to check in with.

    There is supposedly an R/C rotor group in Panama City sharing a field with the fixed-wing AMA group, but I haven't seen much more about it. I found the Marianna AMA group was less than receptive so I decided not to join.

    Just ordered the Helipad advertised in the banner ad here. Great idea!

    Hi guys, Allen here in Pensacola.

    Got my Phantom 2 a few weeks ago and try to go out a couple of times a week to fly. LOTS OF FUN.

    I live near the airport so usually travel to the Pace Athletic Complex to fly, which has worked out fine thus far as it's the off season.

    Where do you guys fly? Are you guys members of NFMI? I'm in AMA but not NFMI (yet).

    It would be good to get together for coffee, sharing, and practice! Ping me if interested!

    Allen

    Hi, just joined about 30 seconds ago.

    I'm in Mexico Beach...just east of Tyndall AFB. Don't ask why, but I've got a P1, P2 and a Vision.

    I know of three other Phantom operators in Port St Joe. I believe they are sinking all of their money into FPV setups on the P1.

    Hey ya'll. I am in Crestview and bought a Production combo from Drone Fly. It's on it's way back to them after the gimbal crapped out and the FPV is only about 200m at best. They said they would be happy to replace what needs replacing so i sadly sent it to them today. I have absolutely loved my Phantom2 with GoPro Hero 3 and 7" monitor. Give me a shout if you are close!

    I'm in Mary Esther. I don't have a Phantom yet, but hopefully will soon. I was into R/C helis years ago and used to fly a little at the Milton site near I-10.

    Anyone have any issues flying around the area since most of fwb is a no fly zone?
