    Hi Pete,
    I'm 66 years old and live in Mortdale, Sydney just on the red line for the airport exclusion zone. A couple of streets west and I am right to fly with GS.

    I'm here in Perth, Western Australia & have recently purchased a Phantom2 Vision+. However, due to poor weather at the moment I haven't done much flying

    Yep I know about the training and the crazy cost that comes with it the two parts are the oc and op the oc only gives you the Ok to fly but not a business Ok to fly that's where you need the op
    and that's where the cost comes in don't be fooled by these course that give you just the oc it means nothing in terms to running to fly your own business yes you need it buts at a crazy cost.

    Perth here. Apart from the last week or so we have had amazing flying weather. No wind from sunrise to sunset so I've been pretty lucky and managed to get quite a bit of flying time recently. Turned to complete crap now though haha
