Another Newbie from Wales

Hi all my name is Richard , I live in Pembrokeshire Wales , I have ordered the new DJI Mini 3 Pro , I am just waiting for it to come into stock , I have been watching a few videos recently and decided to get an operators ID from the CAA which I did last night after completing the 40 questions , I realise I don’t really need it with a small drone , but I wanted to do for my own benefit . I also joined the BMFA drone fliers for the price of £40 its good to have the insurance in place . I have never flown a drone before but I am looking forward to it , hopefully I can get to meet some of you over the coming months .
