Hi Mike / @Fat-Cat , and welcome to GADC.
A significant number of our members also own a P4 … so you are amongst good company.
If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members and you’ll see there are a few other members in your neck of the woods, some of whom I’m sure will come and say Hi.
The forum’s search functions are a very efficient way to find previous threads and posts that might already have covered topics in which you are interested in learning more or answer that niggling question but, when this doesn’t turn up what you’re after, there’s a wealth of knowledge amongst the members, so ask away over on #questions-and-answers.
Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown in the past … which, obviously, doesn’t necessarily mean they are still OK to fly and, as always, any pilot needs to check that everything’s OK before flying at any of them.
I live not far away, in Eastleigh, and have flown at both Southsea and Portsdown Hill a few times … but, not so familiar with other sites in the area.
Hopefully a few of our members with better knowledge of the area will throw in some suggestions.
Please also take a moment to look at the Membership Levels section on our FAQ .
