Hi all. I haven’t bought my first drone yet although I have flown RC planes and helicopters previously. I’m in my early 60’s and self-employed so I’m one of those ‘difficult to buy things for’ people. I’ve got my flyer and operator ID’s. I’ve watched lots of YT videos and have decided to go for the DJI Mini 2 Flymore package, as a Christmas present for myself. Family can chip-in or buy me some accessories / filters etc. Thought I’d join the club to learn as much as I can.
Hi @John1960 and welcome to Grey Arrows
An excellent choice of first drone
