Hello, Broadsword here (Southampton)

Hello friends. I’m based out of Southampton for the moment and I’m the proud owner of a slightly dinked DJI mini 2. Looking to make friends and influence people. When not messing around with drones, I drive up and down the country in cranes.


Hi @Broadsword and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

Have you seen our members map? (Click the burger-menu in the top right) You may find some pilots living near you. Feel free to add yourself to the members map too :+1:t2:

We’re a well established club with many knowledgeable members so it’s very likely that any issues you come across will have been discussed here before. Our discussion forum has very powerful search features which should help you find what you need but if you get stuck you can post a new question in the #questions-and-answers category.

Looking for recommendations of places to fly? Check out our interactive map on Drone Scene - be sure to log in to gain access to the full suite of features and map layers:

And please feel free to add locations of your own too.

Please also take a moment to look at the Membership Levels section on our FAQ as we’re quite different to other clubs and you’ll be eligible for some rather exclusive club discounts as your membership level increases :blush:

Welcome once again!

Welcome to GADC

Could have done with you last summer :slight_smile:

People were trying to find one of our Birthday Challenge and Treasure Hunt items:

  1. Mobile Crane
  • Bonus point if in motion
  • Bonus point if being escorted
  • Bonus point if it has more than 6 axles (visible)
  • Bonus point if on a single track road
  • Bonus point for NOT being yellow

Once you get your crane to site do you get time to put a drone up?

Hi @Broadsword - welcome to GADC :+1: :+1: :+1:

Hi, also based in Southampton. Not the best place for drone flying! Welcome…

Welcome to the club…
I’m not too far from you, based in Fareham…


So, question for the assembled: where do you
Guys generally fly your drones in the Southampton/new forest area, since apparently we’re not allowed to fly there.

I’m a total newbe and having a similar problem in Fareham finding a site to practice safely… :frowning: it would help if I knew what I was doing…
