Dean from Portsmouth

Hello guys/girls First time drone owner got my Mini 3 Pro on release day and been loving it so far, I decided to take up a new hobby and i been watching a youtuber for some time now and decided to take the plunge.

Im here to look at some of your great pictures and get idea for some great areas to film/picture also what would also be great is meet some follow drone pilots in the Portsmouth area.

Hope to see you around, safe flying.


Hi @HEX5555 and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

Welcome from sunny Hayling Island - 4 miles east and 40 years behind Portsmouth :slight_smile:

I’m a wee bit busy at the moment as one of the team running the Birthday Challenge, click the link and have a look,

It might seem daunting at first but it’s very simple. We aren’t looking for phot skills. All you have to do is picture various items and the associated bonuses to gain points. The top prize is £200 and it’s a great way to meet a cross section of the GADC community. It runs for seven weeks and you have only missed the first few days so no problems in keeping up :slight_smile:

If you are still after any help come September send me a message, I’m free most days.

wow thank you, will look at this, is that link to what i need to do?

It’s hours of reading fun! Basically it’s work out where you will find these things and then photograph them. You can ask in the thread itself for advice or message @Challenges_Committee directly. They will be kind to a newcomer the first couple of times … :slight_smile:

Thank you, it does look fun.

…creates a new account for the competition :joy: :joy:

Hi Dean,

I’m also relatively new to the drone scene, having been hooked when my brother-in-law visited with his Mini 2.

I’m in Waterlooville, not to far away. There seem to be quite a few members in the local area - perhaps we could arrange a meet up?


Well count me in be awesome to meet up.
