    Looking to meet up with my fellow Brooklyn pilots. I'm specifically interested in aerial cinematography but also just general drone knowledge, mods, law/policy and even starting a racing league.

    Anyone out there!?

    bay ridge right here.

    I'd like to hook up with someone who has a go pro 3+. I want to try out FPV using my extender to see if it kills the delay

    Williamsburg here. I am a new owner and still have parts on the way. I would love to start a meetup.com group if you all want?

    I live on Manhattan but I'm near the L train, can I play too? :)

    Would be happy to meet up with some other Phantom pilots and goof around, maybe help you with your testing Dragonash

    I gotta sort out some FPV issues I'm getting absolutely terrible range. I should be able to fly all the way over to you but I can't get more than a block or 2

    I Don't understand your opening statement but that's a cool shot! I often fly in that area but I take off from the Manhattan side (east river park)

    its hard to tell from a pic, but are you flying over the bridge?

    Or at you so high up that it looks like you might be over the bridge?

    Hey, let's organize some flying together. I was flying on Brighton Beach and it was pretty good. Who's in for this weekend 20, 21 Sept, 2014?

    Daaam... I haven't been to BB since the 90's.

    There is also plumb beach, where they do all the kite surfing.
    Less people to worry about and the surfers don't mind getting filmed.

    What kind of laws are we up against in NYC? I would like to fly near Governor's Island, East River, Hudson River, Ellis Island & Statue of Liberty. I'm from Staten Island and mostly fly in Great Kills.

    Hi, just signed up to this forum. Got my Phantom 3 pro in the mail the other day. Have done a lot of research but haven't actually flown yet. Does anyone know of a meet-up for pilots? Looking to get some assistance in starting out. Thanks!
