Complete Nooob from the High Peak

Hi. Danny here from the High Peak just saying hello.

I am completely new to this…just treated myself to a Mavic Mini, and been out a few times already on the moorlands above Glossop where I live.

Obviously I am very nervous at the moment flying the drone, but I dare say that the more I practice the more confident I will become.

Anyhow I do have a million questions I am sure that you all can help with, I will of course post these in the correct forum but for now its nice to meet you all!

100% correct Danny!

As you practice you’ll gain confidence In what the aircraft can do. So practice, practice, practice. One thing you do need to be careful of though is wind. Such a light aircraft doesn’t;t handle strong wind very well and the wind speeds tend to increase the higher you go. Even the experienced amongst us can get caught out:

Well worth subscribing to Ian’s videos!


Hi Danny, welcome. I’m originally from Glossop, now living in Morecambe. I grew up in Crowden, going to Glossop School. You have some stunning scenery all around you.
One thing to be aware of as you grow in confidence is getting over confident.
But enjoy the experience.
