Hi fellow droners. Introduced by pingspike . Been droning for a few months P3 now Mavic pro. Been waiting for decent weather (been quite a wait)
Welcome to the forum. We have another member in Bolton and me in Westhoughton
I am also from sunny bolton
Ok I lied it’s not sunny
Maybe a meet up somewhere local for a fly and a chat include the howfner Barry
Hi @Gadgerman and welcome to Grey Arrows!
Our northern contingent grows steadily stronger
How are you finding the difference between the two? I came straight in to a Mavic Pro so not tried a Phantom, are you finding them similar in flight operation? Or chalk and cheese??
Alas, like the rest of us, we’re all waiting for the decent weather to arrive
Welcome once again Chris
I'm always up for a meet . I have only met one other droner locally and he was a stunt flyer .
As for the differences between the P3 and the Mavic ,not that different , the P3 is more cumbersome, slower not as influenced by wind and not as agile but easier to spot at at distance. The biggest difference for me was the remote , the mavic’s is much easier to hold ,lighter and a lot more buttons.
A change of subject is anyone else going on the DJI New Pilot experience on 28th April ?
Is that the same event as this one?
Or is it something different?
If different, please share some more details
Not the same event. This one is in milton keynes . New Pilot Experience - DJI for New pilots
Nice!! I’ll share this in a new thread if you don’t mind?
No problem , the event is in Milton Keynes not Huddersfield , Huddersfield is where the shop sponsoring the event is from
Oh shit, yes, of course. Thanks, will edit!
How did the event go ?
Not very good. No one from DJI there, dronesdirect sales event. Only 12 people there. Waste of my time and cost me £50 for the priviledge
Was that for petrol because the event was free.
Did you stay for the drone flying? Even though we had to schlep into a muddy field to do it - and it was raining - our group had a it of fun with the Phantom and Mavic Air. I agree that I learnt little or nothing from the talk but the free coffee was good.
Yes thats was for the petrol
