Meetup #2 Fly-In: The Urban Version

From: Shawn M.
Sent on: Saturday, February 22, 2014 3:34 PM

Hi Gang,

We're all set for tomorrow's fly in #2. Last call for RSVPs

When: Sunday, February 23rd 11:00 am – 3:00pm  
Where: 4200 Gaylord (enter/park on 43rd)
Why: fly multirotors, film, photo, learn, teach, share

Pull in on 43rd (west) and look for open gate about a block down. We'll be setting up on the far NORTH WEST corner of the property, by a long row of truck trailers.  Trailers should be a good wind block if we need it.  Park on 43rd or drive thru the gate and park along the NORTH side of the fence--DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK...there's all sorts of bottles and scrap metal scattered around. My black truck will be parked at the set up area.  Here's a sneak peak, from the air, of course...set up just out of pic, right side, on the pad

I've set up an obstacle course w/10' pylons for practice and a fastest lap contest.  Winner gets:

Agenda (subject to change)

11:00 -11:30: Safety Meeting and Introductions 
11:30-Noon: Birds of a Feather group breakout 
Noon-12:30- Q&A Topic BASICS 
Quads: Phantom or ? 
Flight Controllers: Basics 
Radio Frequencies: Basics

Editing: Basics 
12:30-4:00: Open Fly (2 pilots at a time) 
1:00-4:00: Timed Obstacle Course (times to be listed, big ass trophy for winner)

Photo/Video contest: think it's easy to make a 5 acre commercial parcel look cool?  Here's your chance to practice commercial aerial photo/videography skills. I bartered with land owner and we agreed upon 3 aerial photos of his site as payment.  So, let's make it a contest-- top 3 shots win. Submit to me within 5 days after and we'll vote online.

Timed Obstacle Course: Think you're a decent pilot? There will be a course set up on site and we'll see who's Top Gun of this group...big ass trophy for fastest time.  Broken Phantom for slowest.

Birds of a Feather: Find others like you! We'll take some time to break out in small groups to compare notes: from noob to 3D build-your-own, it helps to remember who's who.

Q&A Topic: BASICS.  This open forum will be a rapid fire exchange to ask and answer some of the millions of questions facing a newer person to this RC multirotors.  We'll try and stick to the list of basics, great time to inform and share successes/failures/favorites

GET PSYCHED!  See you there.....
