    Looking to fly around here, (see link) its "Lost Cabin Spring" west Vegas. Looking at google maps it looks like I can turn off the highway and onto the dirt road. Just trying to find out if I'm correct

    Thanks

    I think that is on the other side of the mountain from Vegas, actually closer to Pahrump. It is a bit of a drive for us Vegas guys, so perhaps no one is familiar with the area.

    Did you ever go out and scope it out? I'm fairly new to Vegas and always looking for cool places to fly my P4

    I have not been out there. I am new to the Phantom world. I know a couple of decent places, but I have not been out to Pahrump.

    Ambitiouschris, are you willing to risk your P4 in this wind?

    I'm headed to Vegas next week and was planning to go check out Red Rock Canyon. I'm debating on bring my P2. Are there places to fly along the scenic route in Red Rock Canyon (if its even allowed)? I was going to take the fam through the scenic route and maybe stop for a little bit to get some ariel shots.

    Unfortunately, drone flying is not allowed in Red Rock Canyon, as it is a national park. There are some areas outside of the canyon that might be interesting. They may take some hunting, though.

    I'll be visiting Vegas from Phoenix the week after Memorial Day (Tues-Friday) and bringing my Phantom 3, I'll go check this out for sure.

    Oracle, what did you find? Any good scenic legal flying sites?

    If you like desert landscapes and long dry river beds and ravines to fly along, I have suggestions.

    Right above you.
    Does anyone go down to the Lake Bed area to fly or around Lake Mead ? I'll be out there in late November with my P4 .
