Virginia Fly In

It's time for another Virginia fly-in. Come show off your latest design or learn from others if you don't have your own drone.

We are also pleased to announce that representatives from local DJI dealer intelligentuas.com will be around demoing some of their products and selling items at a discount. Please put in the comments below what you would be interested in seeing demoed and if there is anything you would like them to bring so you can check it out and possibly buy at the event.

Please note that we will not be meeting at the main entrance to Ida Lee, but instead in a side area where there are likely to be fewer people. You can find it on the map at this link https://maps.google.com/maps?q=39.126452,-77.572317&ll=39.126556,-77.572322&spn=0.002314,0.004935&num=1&t=h&gl=us&z=18.

    John great vid! I had the other QAV500 but ran out of time and had to leave before i could send mine up. Im thinking about switching my flight controler out for something else.. Whats ur setup?

    Just wanted to say I had a great time and will be out again. Because so many people asked questions I added a video shot from my QAV500 to see the quality. This video has no post editing done so you can see how well the frames vibration damping works even when I am fly hard, enjoy and let me know what ya think...

      Really nice video John . . . I liked our Canadian visitors there at the end! ;>) Really great flying. The camera seems very stable. The damping is definitely working. Great job!

    Wow!! What a great day of flying drones and meeting new friends. Thank you Tim and Chris and the rest of you who were involved in putting the event together and who took the time to share your knowledge. Enjoyed the format and specially the attention to safety and responsible flying. I'm so looking forward to the next "Fly In" and specially the conference.

    First time out. I had a great time. The flyers were friendly and answered all kinds of questions. I may have acquired a new building hobby over the winter. Thanks everyone!

    Great to see so many people flying and interested in drones. It is a great example of how much fun it is and how this can be done safely.

    Try 17736 Old Waterford Road in your GPS.

    I cant find the place. The map doesnt work for me. Im at the main spot

    August 31, 2013

  • Henrik de G.

    This is closer to Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center than Ida Lee Park. Don't try going through the library because you can't. We tried.

    I'm looking forward to meeting the DJI rep and learning about the Phantom Vision which was demoed at NAB in April and supposed to be available in July. Will it be demoed at the fly in and what is the price?

      I know of a couple people interested in purchasing a DJI Naza V2 w/ GPS; also looking for gimbals; perhaps the ZENMUSE H3-2D.

      August 23, 2013

    • Gustavo Z.

      I would like to purchase a set of DJI 1038 propellers if they are available.

      August 23, 2013

  • Richard Dos S.

    Is this a quad copter fly-in only, because I only fly planes. Also will there be a list of rules and guide lines to follow?

    August 21, 2013

    • Timothy R.

      Fixed wing platforms are welcome as well. We will discuss safety guidelines at the beginning of the event before anyone starts flying.

      August 21, 2013

  • Ellen

    I am interested, been reading articles, and want to learn more.

    Looking forward to meeting all
