    Newbie in Pittsburgh

    Hello everyone! I've had my drone for 2 weeks now but the weather has been too bad to fly properly and practice! I'm also off to LA next week and plan on taking it so hopefully I'll get to test it this weekend or when I'm in out there with my US family! Cheers!

    Hi all, I'm a brand new Spark owner, never flown drones before. I live in San Juan Capistrano, if anyone would like to get together & go fly, let me know. I can't find any groups near me so I'm looking for flying buddies.
