Hello from Burnley

I am new to drones and purchased a Mavic Air in June this year and wish I had done it years ago. As a leisure flier I use my drone for 2 things, firstly for video and photography along with my Osmo mobile 2 and iPhone 8 Plus and secondly to save my legs carrying out Vermin control on 3 farms. I sit in the centre of the 500+ acres and send up the drone and fly round the perimeter to spot foxes, rabbits etc. And once spotted head straight for them, It makes Vermin control far more interesting.
For photography the MA is fantastic, portable, easy to carry and provides high quality footage and images.
I am a 73 year old “old fart” but the drone has given me a new lease of life and hope to enjoy it long enough to see the Mavic Air 2…3…4…etc.

Hi Stephen, and welcome to GADC.

There area lots of other members with the Mavic Air, so you’re in good company. :+1:

If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members. This is a relatively new feature so not everyone is on there, and I’m sure there are far more members in your neck of the woods that will come and say Hi.

(Don’t forget to add yourself to that map : Members’ Location Map - A Guide)

Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown:

Welcome aboard :grinning:

Hi Steve,
A big welcome from the Bump of England, better known as East Anglia.
We have plenty of flat areas around here to fly over, our highest point is Sheringham Hump. We are not known for our Hills round here !.
Have a great time surfing about, or just ask a question or two on Droning in general.
Welcome !
