Greetings from Poole, Dorset

Hello All

Well I finally bit the bullet and bought a Mini fly more combo after toying with the idea for a few years. I used to fly model aircraft and helicopters and have spent many pleasant hours flying gliders.

Everything has been charged and set up and the next challenge is finding somewhere to fly. I’ve registered as its easy to go over the 250g limit and joined fvpuk to get insurance so its time to go.

Any locals have some advice on where to start flying?



Hi Mark / @Sipper, and welcome to GADC. :+1:

An ever increasing number of our members also own the Mavic Mini … so you are amongst good company.

If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members and you’ll see there are a few other members in your neck of the woods (I’m only up the road near Southampton).

The forum’s search functions are a very efficient way to find previous threads and posts that might already have covered topics in which you are interested in learning more or answer that niggling question but, when this doesn’t turn up what you’re after, there’s a wealth of knowledge amongst the members, so ask away over on #questions-and-answers.

Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown in the past … which, obviously, doesn’t necessarily mean they are still OK to fly and, as always, any pilot needs to check that everything’s OK before flying at any of them.

Please also take a moment to look at the Membership Levels section on our FAQ .

Welcome aboard!


Welcome to the club Mark. Enjoy your stay. :handshake:
