Today I met the fine folks of the LA/OC Drone User Group!
Let me tell you, this is a brilliant, passionate group of people. They fly drones for different reasons; some like to build, and others like to gather unique video. If you are in the area and interested in drones, this is the place to be! I came for fly day, where I met tons of people who have built their own stuff from scratch, used kits, and really know all about gear.
And then there’s people like me (ok, really just me) who have no idea about gear and just want to learn. Everyone is groovy and helpful, and I learned a ton! We flew around a big dirt field, and my Phantom held up against all the other spiffy gear these guys have. Drone people are great!
