What's your experience working with drones? Beginners are welcome!

I started with an Parot AR Drone a couple years ago then moved to a Flame F450. Eventually I sold most of my inventory out of frustration with more time repairing than flying. I purchased a Phantom 2 Vision at Christmas this year and love it! My learning time on the fully manual drones has paid off when flying a fully automatic Phantom. I have recently been experimenting with a Flytrex GPS datalogger and using Dashware software for syncing data to video.

What kind of equipment do you own/operate (ArduCopter 3DR Hexacopter, Phantom, AR Drone etc...) You don't need to have your own equipment to join the group.

DJI Phantom 2 Vision with a Flytrex data logger (; Parot AR Drone with a Spektrum receiver; DJI F450 Flame Wheel with Flytrex GPS data logger; Hubsan X4 H107 Mircoquadcopter.

What events would you like to see this group have?

Group flights & build-ups
