Fly-In #4 --Golden Edition- Video Project

It's on! -Fly-In #4 site secured!!

Privately owned 15 acre site just off Hwy 93, north west corner between Gold Gate Park Rd and Spyderco Rd. (see map)

Best route is to exit off 93 onto Pine Ridge Rd (head west), then south on Brickyard Rd.  Follow that to intersection of Syderco, parking will be marked. 

The owners have one request: they'd like us to to capture the best photos of that site for future development. 

Also: a new twist.  Let's make a video. "The essence of Golden, CO".  Choose your favorite spots in/around Golden and practice shooting (safely) short (20-30 second) clips--before or after the fly in.  

I'll set up a Dropbox to collect all entries and see if we can't cut together an awesome 90 second piece.  If any of you editors are up for a challenge, let me know!

I'll put up an agenda a week out- suggestions welcomed.

Get ready to get your Golden on...

    Will anybody be able to show me how to properly crimp wires. I fear i may have bought the wrong kind of crimper, and cannot find the correct at any hardware store. I will have money tomorrow if anyone will sell me a real crimper.

    • Jason N.

      Are you crimping power pole connectors?

    Very Excited! Finally got my Phantom 2 in. Shawn has been amazing at helping me get it all set up, but we ran into a snag setting up the Lawmate rx/tx for the video feed. Hoping someone can help us get it all lined up tomorrow. See you there!

    A nice site to use to get local (as in microclimate) weather information is wunderground.com:

    (http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=golden%2C+co)

    It has some nice features based on personal weather stations that are connected to the internet which can provide more information for microclimates that you wouldn't know about (especially winds).

    My tricopter should be done for the meetup, if I figure out crimp connectors. Should i get a separate wire stripper and crimper?

    June 20, 2014

  • Andre H.

    I'd be happy to offer my editing services. I can put the result on YouTube, DVD or Blu-ray discs.

      Bring your son along! What more fun could you have at a birthday than hanging around with a bunch of drone-heads... LOL :)

    I often use this link for finding good/new spots to fly in Colorado. You can also add your own, once you figure out how the page works. https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zjYlxx5w300I.kmgDGKOhrMAo
