Hello fansd1cc2c91.....was this video taken yesterday, Sunday the 22nd??? I just got a Mavic Pro (1st drone to own) and was having a flying lesson at Penn Treaty Park off I95/Girard Avenue....very foggy too.
Where do you live?? I'm in the NE section of the city and am looking for cool places to fly, out of the way, not too many people around and picturesque. Perkiomen Park...where is that located??? Please reply. Thanks

This video was taken on Saturday morning just after sunrise. Perkiomen park is located at Oaks by the side of 422 (close to Valley forge park).

I haven't done this yet. Have to pick a day with good weather and less crowd. I was planning to fly from the same side as the opposite side is close to i76.

Hi,

I live in Paoli.  One place that I like to fly is Valley Park.  It has a very nice clear field at the top of the hill (after you park, just head up the hill on one of the trails).  Attached is a picture of part of the open area.  Nice views of countryside.

Very Cool. Have you ever been to Green Lane Park ? I drive by that too every morning on rt 29. I'm thinking of stopping there too.

Hi,

Sorry, first post on the board and had a little trouble.  Here is the photo (I hope).  The address of the park is at 1400 Mill Rd., Wayne, PA 19087 and it is actually called Mill Road Park.

Yes, I've been to Green Lane a number of times (prior to getting the Phantom).  Lovely place.  Are they drone friendly?

We typically get there around noon.  The forecast is 35ish degrees and if there's no wind we should be fine.  Its a very open area, thus when the wind "kicks up" it'll be too freaking cold.

Where are you located?

I'm in Paoli, so it's only about a 45 minute drive.  Sounds like a good location!

Great...we try to get up there and fly at least once a month.  Its wide open and I usually bring all my toys (DJI, quad racers & planes).  Main purpose for Saturday is to review the Epson Moverio BT-300 glasses

Is that the side of the road opposite the ball fields next to the runway (at least it looks like a runway on the satellite images)?

This video was taken on Saturday morning just after sunrise. Perkiomen park is located at Oaks by the side of 422 (close to Valley forge park).

I was flying at Perkiomen this morning, and a ranger stopped by and asked me to stop flying the drone.  We had a very congenial conversation.  After I got home I rechecked (I had previously checked and thought it was permitted use) and found the following dated May 6 2016 which bans all drone flying in Montgomery County Parks except for a small area of Green Lane:

http://patch.com/pennsylvania/no ... king-drones-parks-0

"Drones will also be banned in public parks, as there have been numerous reports of the technology becoming a public safety hazard. In addition to accidents, commissioners noted that individuals have also been chasing wildlife with drones.

Drones are very likely to disrupt migratory patterns, according to the Audubon Society, and some birds of prey view drones with hostility, leading to drone destruction.

One small area in Green Lane Park will be set aside for individuals to fly drones."

Just FYI.

Penn recently released a set of guidelines for the use of unmanned aircraft systems, informally known as drones, on or above Penn’s campus, Morris Arboretum, the New Bolton Center and Pennovation Works, according to Penn's Almanac.

So if I'm reading this correctly, really there is no guidelines.  Under 55 pounds and fly less than 100 mph, I think that we're all within that guideline.
