I'm a new solo owner in North Carolina outside of Charlotte (I live at Long Island Airpark on the northwest side of Lake Norman). Yep, I have already notified the airpark declarant about my drone flights as living on an airpark means my backyard is most definitely within 5 miles of an airport. (the declarant is my neighbor down the runway, lol). Years ago I was heavily into RC helis and planes, but mostly gave up the hobby after getting my pilot license. This time of year the weather is not great for flying a motor glider or seaplane, so I have been toying with getting a drone. I saw the 3DR Solo at Best Buy, got curious, and googled it. After realizing it runs Linux and has some development options (I am a computer scientist and software engineer), I decided to go ahead and buy it despite some of the range and GPS issues I saw discussed(I figure I can upgrade the GPS and add a WiFi extender based on the posts in these forums). Looking forward to flying it and communicating with other owners!
