If anyone gets there before me, please reserve me that spot I have all the registration tables, and shade canopy's for the event, so I want to be close.

I'll have a single channel, and a quad channel charger hooked up, but I have plenty of extra room and capacity, I hope.

For the demo's we are bringing a TV so we can see it easier, so I want to reserve juice for that....
Treggon...i want to get there about 530 or 6 and do a sunrise flight...you down?

OK, cool. I've got a 16" monitor that runs on 12v or a 3s lipo for a long time. If i'm not on it, we can run it all day if you want. I got 8000 mah, it'll go and go

it has an anti glare cover that does pretty good out in the open

Would anyone mind if I bring my groundstation just to test receiving others' transmissions on 1.3 GHz? I haven't done lots of FPV and don't currently have a flying plane.

Anyway, really excited to meet you all tomorrow and to see your gear! I've never met another FPVer. Also hope to get lots of inspiration.

Ok finished the last preparations - although I couldn't get the Maja ready in time but I will still bring her just to display.

See you all in a couple hours! Sleep tight!

Stoked on Team Tregtronics Today. We brought it. Thanks for the great get together Andy. Thanks for the great people who came out and made it a great community event.

  • Kloner, period, dude brought it
  • Tregtronics' Minstrel Josh kept our Zone mellow and calm
  • Otto setting the vertical distance records, and getting his new nickname, RipCurl
  • Andy giving some solid FPV advice to everyone
  • Otto's Superman demo, not FPV, but always fun
  • 70 amps being drawn from one battery, go Kloner
  • Quad Copters flown like planes, go ... uh yah, Kloner
  • Super cool Dude lurking who noticed the 70 amps
  • Easy Star surfing the cliff, get that bush
  • Super cool people
  • When we left peeps came over and thanked us for cleaning up the zone.
  • LA crew pulling together their bixler in one night, and 45 minutes in the morning, after lawn darting it the day before. Way to get it up and fly, that's motivation.

Had fun meeting so many new faces, a couple from cp heli groups that i know, awesome to see you all again. Can't wait for the next one, if you see me not responding, feel free to kick me in the nuts and tell me what were doing, i'm in. hopefully next time we can find us a more rf friendly place and we can drop that stuff down and let r rip.

my better of the two quads for filming didn't boot up the video so were stuck with the shroomin clouds, but it's still alright
