Evening from Leeds


#1

Evening all

New flyer here from Leeds. Got curious and bought a DJI Ryze Tello to see if i want to turn it into a bigger hobby with bigger money.

Not done a true outdoor flight yet, did go up to Almscliffe Crag first thing a bit ago but bottled it with Sheep and a sign stating no Drone Flying due to frightening the cattle.

Look forward to being part of the community

Hi Dak
Welcome to the madhouse
Before you know it you’ll have that more expensive drone

Hi Dakin / @Dak, and welcome to GADC.

Several members have the Tello … although I’ve personally yet to see one, I’ve head good things about them. :+1:

If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members and you’ll get an idea if there are other members in your neck of the wood.

(Don’t forget to add yourself to that map : Members’ Location Map - A Guide)

Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown. Obviously, this is mainly populated by posts from the more sedate drones than yours, but there’s always a change that it might be of assistance.

Just make sure there’s no wind - and I mean no wind - before letting that fella in the air. I did the same as you seeing if I’d take to it, but my Tello is now at the bottom of a Canadian lake due to a small gust. On the bright side it proved it was something I wanted to get in to.

Thanks for the welcomes all. Thanks for the advice @leeheyes, my research also turned up the wind restrictions with the Tello too!

Hello from fellow Loiner, although now exiled in North Yorkshire.

Good luck with the new drone, we are a friendly lot and like a bit of banter too.

Definitely will @jonathantozer!

Think I’m off for a fly tomorrow weather dependant. I’ve not checked yet. Thinking Ogden water, black Carr wood or roundhay park.

Reminds me I need to update flight locations for Black Carr Wood!
