I think I have found the perfect place to fly my drones.  Its a field on the campus of my employer and I have been given permission to fly there.  It's perfect because I don't have to worry about people wondering about.  See the photo attached.  That little round area at the end of the street is perfect for staging litchi missions.  I'm going to try it out this weekend.

It's good for practice though, and getting your exp / gimbal dialed in, playing with footage in the same weather before a real shoot. Like when I was going out to the mid west, knew what the drone was producing real time and got the drone shots before the sun set.

I think a lot of people miss those shots because they are shooting and praying the footage doesn't suck. But it sucks! What you going to do but spend all time in post trying to fix garbage

I know but I'm limited by safety.  A 105 pound blonde female by herself in remote areas is a magnet for perps.  So its this or parks which are always full of people.

Hi, Thanks for sharing this with us. You can also check our geo zone map to see if the location would be restricted so that you could be able to fly your drone. Kindly see the link below. Please have a safe flight.

if your that frightened of other people potentially doing something to you, for any reason, then carry a force multiplier on you...aka get a gun, learn to shoot practice practice practice... and if someday the worst happens, than you can handle yourself without becoming a victim.

Or I could fly the business park where I have permission and it's safe.  I really like that option.

Christine, looks like a great place to learn the features of Litchi.   You don't need beautiful scenery to learn on.  You need objects, and there are plenty available there.

Christine, you need to learn the art of the stealth launch & fly.  Park at the back of a parking lot, shopping center, etc, with your vehicle facing your intended flight direction.  Prep the bird in the vehicle, casually set it outside & fire her up.  Then sit back in your car with the remote on the wheel & fly in climate-controlled comfort.  You even have a convenient cup holder!  The glass won't affect your RC range, & you can even fly pretty far off to the sides & rear.

Go to the very end.  I flew the whole flight sitting in the truck.

As long as you feel comfortable flying there and enjoy flying the drone without looking over your shoulder whilst you practice then that's a good start Christine.

Thehipoz if you were trying to hurt my feelings well mission accomplished.  I cried when I read your insults but then I remember what my dad said a couple years ago when I graduated from college. He said “girl you graduate with an engineering degree at just 19 years old,  that’s extraordinary.  My dad is my hero and he would pound you into kitty litter.

What the hell is happening to this place? Where are the moderators at to boot these people? Why would anyone say that about someone period. We are here to talk about Mavic's, Photography, Videography, places to fly.. Not insult people for no reason.

Don't allow that Schmoe to bother you, Christine.  He's only exposing himself as a classless POS.
