Hello from a newbie living in Bath

Hi everyone, I’ve been flying for a little while now. DJI Phantom 4 Pro, which is now for sale, and a Mavic Air 2. I love flying and would like to learn more about videography and photography.

Welcome aboard @MikeShines you have come to the right place. I just bought an air 2 after having a mini 2 for a couple of years. Have to say I prefer the Air 2 and it’s pretty much my go-to drone now. We run a few wee challenges here and there that are aimed at improving your photography and video skills. I know you can search, but to save you the hassle you might want to check out:

Fun And Friendly Edit Challenge

Reason To Fly Challenge

Video Of The Month

Great Wall Of Fame

Don’t be too shy to ask any questions and have a poke about the site :+1:


@mynameisjoe Thank you. I will come back to these.

Hi Mike


As Darren @mynameisjoe (yes, it IS confusing!) says you can enjoy a friendly atmosphere and increase your skills and measure them against others in any of our challenges.

And look out for the Annual Birthday Challenge and Treasure Hunt, it exercises a broader range of skills and lasts for seven weeks around the school summer holidays. Cash prizes too!

It’s such a pity I have to work for a living. :sweat_smile:

Most do :slight_smile: But some have spare time, even evenings or weekends.

Except those of us on the Challenges Committee, of course :sob:
