I've found several RC clubs here, but they all seem to be geared toward model airplanes rather than multirotors. I found one page about a "drone advocacy" organization, but it hasn't been updated that I could find since last spring. Any orgs I should know about, particularly related to multirotor flying including get-togethers and advocacy? That last is especially important, it seems, because from what I can tell governments in this state are almost scrambling to ban these things for recreational use, and they need to get pushback from the sUAS community.

Hah! I was working on adding myself to the map when this came through. There are now, apparently. all of 2 drone fliers in the Twin Cities. ;)

Yeah, that's one of the reasons to add yourself. There are almost 18,000 members, but less than 200 or so on the map. If your pin is there, it is at least a possibility that someone else can find YOU, and make contact. A small probability, to be sure, but at least it now exists.

@Eslader, I live in St Paul but I tag my pin about 120mi north. My folks live on 200 acres that boarders the Nemadji State Forest just south of Duluth. It is very wilderness like. Just picked up an H Plus myself. Would you have any interest to head up with me sometime for a shoot?

Let me know if you do this. I'm about 100 miles to the East of Duluth. Also, @thoneter drives to Duluth frequently and may be interested.

@Steve Carr , Absolutely! It all depends on when the ground firms up after the big thaw. The drive in from the main road goes through a swamp. It might take a month or so. I'll keep y'all posted.
