    Hi to all I have seen that in Europe from time to time our colleges there organise seminars, air shows, get together events on multi rotors ONLY, is there any thing like that been organized here in the USA, it would be great to asist to one and to meet some of you in person
    Thanks

    Phoenix is really nice in the Winter! Mid 70s, not much wind, huge areas we could fly...

    That sounds good, I may suggest for some of us on the east coast it would be a great also an area with some hills trees some scenery I mention NAB so to use the trip for that too but NAB is 6 month from now, Florida is also nice in the winter but kind of flat, well what ever the thing is to get together and have many attendees with their Copters

    Travel by air is something that's hard for me and driving to Phoenix is a bit far....so perhaps we could countenance a Pacific NW get together separately from Phoenix, Tabb?

    I agree specially for the ones that come from far away plus if Quadrocopter Freefly, Droidworks, Photohigher, DJI and others participate at NAB like last year imagine....the idea is to fly with others meet and exchange ideas some small seminars, talks, etc.... perhaps after NAB extending the hotel stay is cheaper and flights out of LAS are cheaper once NAB is over someware near Las Vegas there is plenty of space there
    buy the way a little of topic note: 3 years in a row to NAB Priceline beats any any hotel rate that you can find there even NAB hotel pricing, Priceline "name your own price" is ridiculous cheap..........

    No.
    You have to play: Let's make someone else land in a tree. :rolleyes:
    The snag is that Vegas is a bit light on trees and heavy on desert (and dessert).

    I moved from Vegas a few years ago, and Just north of Vegas is Mount Charleston, about 45 min drive. It has a lot of trees and is nearly 10k feet elevation. There is also Red Red Canyon Park which would be amazing to film ...

    NAB is a great idea, since I'll be there anyway. I'm in.

    NAB would be cool. And if you haven't registered yet, I used a discount code ("EM01") which was supposed to expire on Oct 31, but it worked for a free Exhibits-Only pass.

    Where/when do y'all think we could get together? I'd love to meet some of you in person. And if anybody is so inclined and can bring their bird, we should find a fun place to fly.

    How about we all line them up then fly them through the exhibits? Could get some cool footage! :rolleyes:

    I'd be down to meet there!

    In my opinion it's NAB already.... so we should start thinking about hotels. If we can get a large group of people we could try to get a "group discount" with one of them.
    What do you think?
