    Been doing well, between rain and work haven't had many opportunities to to get out and fly. Lately always seem to be busy during the daylight hours.

    It's been raining here a lot as well. My granddaughter affectionately calls my back yard Lake Mentone.

    The cursed June winds are in full effect in Northern California. It finally gets sunny after 8 months of rain and now the wind howls at 30 knots day and night for a month. On the bright side, it gives me time to edit some footage that's been on the backburner.

    Weather has been good in South Texas. Hope to fly 4 batteries today and more this weekend. MPP is itching for some action. Did a 360 degree pano (Tiny Planet) at a friends ranch last flight and amazed the wife.
    After a year with it I’m very comfortable sending the bird out to do it’s thing.

    4 batteries - wow that's a good long flying session! It's cold and windy over on my side of the planet this morning but I might try to get the drone airborne later this afternoon when the wind is predicted to drop.

    I swear, if this dang rain doesn't stop soon, I'm gonna scream! My granddaughter affectionately calls my back yard Lake Mentone. I'm sure glad I can put the prop-guards on my Air and buzz around in the house.

    My Mavic 2 never gets wet because my roof protects it.

    Well...I've been Mia for a few weeks with some back issues but I think I've got things back in order, so I will be around more often now! Great to see the population growing here.

    Fabulous flying weather but my Mavic Pro is currently a door stop and paper weight. See issues in Mavic Pro forum

    I've been MIA due to horrendous work hours...slowing down a little now. Hopefully I'll be around more now and get a little flight time in.

    Same here - working long hours but can't really fly anyway due to strong winds blowing here for the last week or more. There are also record-breaking bush fires burning up and down the east coast of Australia - the air is thick with smoke!

    Sometimes I wish for smoke to keep the mosquitoes away!

    Bummer about the smoke. I can sympathize, a few years back, thousands of acres burned here on the mountain I live on. The smoke was horrible.
    Hopefully you'll be able to get in the air more soon.

    The smoke has cleared - at least the worst of it anyway. I'm hoping to get the Mavic airborne this Saturday but will need to be well away from the city where there is going to be Air Force fly-over activities as part of our annual River Fire festival. In fact, one of those huge C-17A Globemasters just flew very low over my house on a practice run. The fighter jets will do their stuff a bit later on. Very exciting !!
