Yes -- he's flying that 600 Nitro like he's been flying for years. I wish I could shake the clay feet I stand with to be that adventurous. He can over to Brooks Run for the monthly heli get together a couple of weeks ago.

Got the FPV out the last couple of days.....here is a short clip from the dust bowl in Woodstock. Myself and a friend plan on flying FPV every trip out now that weather is cooling a bit. Still need to install my osd ....then head out for some long range flights.

Hello everyone!
I have finished my FPV helicopter but I haven't been able to find a suitable spot to really try it yet. Any suggestions on a good flying spot for FPV? Thanks.

edit: I thought it was obvious, but I am Lilburn, GA.

I dont fly FPV; but I live in buckhead and fly pretty much anywhere

I fly a lot of parkflyers at the Atlanta International School, it is behind the Wallgreens in Buckhead, just north of Lafonda and Felinis on Peachtree. I fly profile 3d foamies to the parkzone p-51 here.

just south, there is another really quiet field called Peachtree Hills Park. I have been trying to fly a PA Ultimate with 40 inch wings there and its been great for hovering if you can keep it in tight... but I did finally put one in the tree there the other day...it is right behind Treehouse.

Most my flying is done at Dunwoody RC, we fly all types of stuff out there. It is behind the Lowes at Johnson Ferry and Peachtree Industrial. Lots of heli guys, but I am not the only guy flying fixed wings. I would guess some of the guys fly planes up to about 80 in wingspans, but not much bigger as we take off and land on a paved road with curbs, dangerous dangerous curbs... I just finished a new edf that Ive been flying out there as well.

When I got time and gas in the tank, and an invitation, I like to fly at Atlanta RC, Stone Mountain RC, GMA, and Rouge Field up in Gainsville.

Tons of great places to fly; I hear great things about Electric Drones Sod Farm as well, but have not been yet. It all depends on where you live, what part of town are you in
