First Time for Everything!
We'll be hosting our first Sunday Fly-In on August 16th from 4pm to Sunset. Come join us for some first person flying fun!

What to Bring
A rig ready to fly with batteries, and don't forget your transmitter & goggles! Plan to be out at the field for a few hours, pack something to drink and your favorite chair.

Video Frequency Management
We'll be managing frequencies to get 5 people flying at a time. Be prepared to change your video transmitters frequency and/or wait to fly. Remember, always call out your transmitters video frequency before powering up! Our groups have averaged 3-7 people in the past- we're starting to plan for more!

Rules & Safety
This is an informal meetup, but we will be following AMA rules regarding FPV flight. There will be multiple people available to spot for your aircraft if you don't bring a spotter. Listen to spotters for information regarding people around the field and potential aircraft in the sky. It should go without saying but please do not fly over peoples heads and always take off/land a safe distance away from other people. Don't forget to keep an eye out for props!
