Been flying them since January 2013, have a bunch of stick time, and have progressed to FPV.
A DJI F450 highly modified, full FVP, Custom built 800mm hexa using DJI F550 boards and RCL extended arms, full FPV and gimbal. The latest additions have been a QAV 400, full FPV on 1.3mHz, BLG and the little 250mm Mini Quad built around a HobbyKing DART frame, using a Naze32 Acro flight controller, DYS 1806 motors with GemFan 5 x 3 props.
Discussion groups where issues and questions get answered. Fly-ins in nice, non dirt, locations, where AMA membership is NOT needed. Group gathering and swap meets.
A friend and fellow multi-rotor enthusiast.
I have only been flying since January 2013, but have been immersing myself in the sport. I have been focusing on Multi-Rotors thus far. I'm also a Semi Retired Pro-Photographer specialising in Hotel Properties.
These folks not only are enthusiasts, but are all very willing to share and help those of us that are not as up to speed. It is refreshing here in SoCal that tends not to be very inviting at times to find a group like this that gathers expressly for the purpose of meeting others with similar interests. Thanks to Mike for his efforts to promote the group and it's events.
