I thought it was about time I said hello, I have had my mini 3 pro since November last year and have been enjoying my time flying. Really enjoying seeing everyone’s drone footage. I live near Leigh, Manchester area. I am lucky that my parents live down in Wiltshire so I get to go home and have fun flying around there too.
I am still learning if my pictures load up okay, I managed to get the first crop circle of the season and also a photo on top of Hackpen hill looking over to Barbury Castle, Wiltshire.

I think I just went on Google and typed to see if there were any drone forums, and got tons of advice on here before I joined and then got my first proper drone
Now I get drone withdrawal if I can’t fly

I was there in June visiting the parents, and went again last weekend. I moved to Manchester 20 years ago. I am very much into my Neolithic ancient sites and have been to many places and now I have my drone I have been getting even more footage of my favourite sites.
