Hello all from Dorset

Howdy, I have been flying drones for a couple of years now initially a MA1, but was fortunate to win a MA2 last Autumn, both were great, but the 2 is definitely a step up. I fly to continue my other hobby - photography and so perhaps unusually, not that interested in the seemingly more common video capabilities.

! live a a wonderful part of the country, but find my ambitions regularly hampered by wind, having the National Sailing Academy on my doorstep should have been a combat indicator of this I suppose!

I have spent over 30 years in aviation as an engineer, and indeed still work in the field, covering manned and unmanned ops, accident investigation, safety approval and assurance amongst other things.

Currently I am working towards my A2 CofC.

I’m looking forward to interacting with you all and learning new stuff and ideas.

Cheers now,



Hobby Mounts? :thinking:

It was Indeed. But as I try to avoid Facebook I wasn’t aware i’d won until 2 weeks later when the shop called me!
