A big thanks goes out to Rich (PingSpike) who invited me to this lovely family gathering.
I invested in a Mavic 2 Zoom just recently & spent a fortune on extras plus a FlyMore Kit. I am just waiting on a set of Tiffin ND filters ordered direct from the States.
I have also got myself insured through Icarus with £1m public liability (which they claim is better than DJI Care Refresh as they claim it’s just an extended warranty in reality with bigger outlay on yourself with claims.)
I haven’t launched it yet, only gone through the “props off” tests at home but nerves prevent me from going out there in the big wide world & stuffing my £1000+ investment into a tree or cliff.
I put a post out on MavicPilots.com to ask for beginners guidance but more importantly, places to practice in my area. I thought I could nip up to the moors & start there as my phone app said I could but digging deeper, I can’t as it’s a national park!
So, if there are any local pilots in the Plymouth area, (I live in Plympton), I would love to meet up & have a little guidance in the basics at a place which is legal.
There’s a couple of post flight beers in it for you!
Yours in anticipation,
PS my knowledge of drones rest with an early Parrot AR which now sits unused in my loft!!
