Another Cambridge droner…dronie…dronoid

Hello. Just bought a DJI Mini 2 after years of convincing myself I don’t need a drone (my wife went away last week and I happened to go on YT and stumbled across a Mini vid. Ordered about 10 minutes later).

Eager to get out there and get it flying after the bad weather but I’m a bit limited as I don’t drive. First flight will be the Gogs I think as it’s the closest, clear space near me.

I’m a bit of an amateur photographer too.

Hi Andy welcome to GADC :+1: :+1: :+1:

Thank you all for your warm welcome.

Hopefully I’m going to pop down to the Gogs (the closest thing you get to hills in Cambridge) this weekend and take my first flight.
