    Anyone in Tucson flying their Phantom FPV? I have a background in R/C slope and thermal sailplanes and just last year started flying my Phantom FPV. I'm looking to meet other Phantom pilots in the area on a regular basis to practice flying and share info and tips on gear and techniques. Anyone out there?

    Greg - I too fly a PV2+ out of Tucson. I have about 20 hours flying/filming and so far have avoided all crashes. No prior R/C. Bought a complete kit, and constantly adding to it (iPad mount, lens duck bill, magnetic storms...) Always learning from others who have paid a price to gain experience and let me profit from that.

    Will be in Tucson for winter starting October 18th. Looking for a store/repair shop to purchase and install equipment for a groundstation.

    I am a new P3P owner in Marana.

    Has anyone tried flying at any of the R/C club sites in the Tucson area? Reading posts here it seems some are more friendly to UAV's than others.

    In particular I am planning to head out to TIMPA in the Picture Rocks area, as that is where I launched rockets with the SARA group.

    I haven't but let me know what you encounter. I've thought about looking into RC clubs but haven't had the chance yet.

    I am in Tucson on the north east side. I have a P3A and would love to find some people to fly with. I think it would be fun to fly fro a look out on mt. lemmon. I just flew around A mountain. I also flew in the open pit in Bisbee. I would like to try that again too. not sure how to make this link work. you may have to copy and past.

    I am up for some flying and there are 4 other guys in our rv park that fly too. We are all active so shoot us a time and a place and I will see if any of us can make it.
    Was the copper pit still being worked? Where did you fly at A Mountain?

    Can not have radio transmitters passed mile 5. Ask if okay to fly at pull outs below that. I am in Oregon so can't go.
