    Oh boy... yea that might be a problem as I no longer have Facebook due to security reasons of my wife and the job title she holds. I'll have to pass on that one Gary. Really appreciate the reply though. Been trying to just see if anyone is out there flying. Alot of these post are from a year ago. So not to sure if anyone is still flying around up here. If you could keep me posted on your meet ups that would be great.

    there are 8 people in the group so far and I only posted it originally to the DJI Phantom 3 group on facebook so I think it will grow as word gets around. YOu certainly would be welcome to join any of us just not sure how to let you know about the matchups without a FB account.. I am in Goodyear so also on the west side. I could post here when and where I am planning to fly if you are interested

    Oh boy... I thought I pm you so that just you and I had a conversation.... ooops. Lol. Yea that's not my permanent schedule. I work a Julian calendar year so I will be rotating out of working the weekends here very shortly and will have the weekends available to fly. So it's 4 days on 4 days off 12 hr shifts. I got 2 more rotations till I'm out of weekends.

    With this heat I haven't been out for 2 weeks. Next weekend I wont be going because I am having eye surgery on THursday and will still be wearing the eye patch. Join our group - See above for link Phoenix area DJI flyers for all multi rotor flyers in the Phoenix area. There are others in that group you can hook up with maybe for next weekend Marc and Lisa are from Chandler so he is not too far from you and he is an avid flyer. Join the group and keep in touch. and Congrats on your new P3 - just watch some of the videos about upgrading and doing the calibrations and you will be fine, On Facebook there are several P3 groups that cover the workd. DJI Phantom 3 Owners, DJI Phantom 3 Pilots and DJI Phantom 3. There are probably more but those are the 3 I follow for the P3.

    Anyone still flying on the west side of Phoenix? I've been flying out at Peoria Lakes lately. Nice place, no people around, no power lines, no buildings, etc....

    I try to get out whenever I can. It would be nice to get a few other to join in....
