I joined a few weeks ago having bought my DJI Mini II to access the dronescene.co.uk website and have since read with interest a number of threads so thought it was time to introduce myself!
I live in the village of Treeton on the outskirts of Sheffield close to Rotherham and have fancied a drone for a while. I finally got around to doing some research, chose the Mini II, convinced the wife (which took some doing), and took the plunge. So far I’ve logged almost four hours of flying time over 20+ flights, covering 30+ km and feel that I’ve found the perfect hobby (having been a keen amateur photographer for a number of years and having always loved remote control cars as a kid and having).
I’m looking forward to learning from the other more experienced drone pilots on here and contributing if and when I can.
Here’s a photo I took in Filey on my first weekend with the Mini II:
