Hello Everyone, Based just outside of Uxbridge

Hello everyone,
Been snooping about the site since I bought a second hand Mavic Air fly combo from a friend. Started reading lots of literature and acquired by operator ID. Been flying quite a bit this last month and look forward to finding new places to fly and hone my skills. Based just outside of Uxbridge , West London and have a fair few no fly and height restricted zones around me, but that hasn’t kerbed my enjoyment of this fabulous hobby.
Plan is to spend the next 6 months flying the Air, and treating myself to a mini 3 or 4 pro next spring.

Hi @Pinewood welcome to the group. Hope you have a good time here.


Any flyers know of good locations to fly within 20-25 miles of Uxbridge? My other hobby is running a two seater convertible sports car, so going for a Sunday run and flying is never a chore :slight_smile:
