Hello from Strensall

Awaiting arrival of DJI Mini 2. Have operator id and am ready to start learning to fly.

Never flown a drone before, so, 63 years old with a lot to learn. Based in Strensall just outside the beautiful city of York.


Hi and welcome to GADC , you will enjoy flying and hopefully meet like minded people?

Hi Shaun and welcome to GADC.

Hi Shaun and welcome to GADC. There’s a fair few of us ‘mature’ gents on here that have picked up this hobby a little late in life :smiley:

Welcome Shaun.

Best bit of advice, watch/look at the drone, not the screen!
