Just to say hello and thanks for the invite to your club.
Am based in Halifax, West Yorkshire, current set up, Mavic Pro and iPad mini 4.
Always up for a meet and a fly, as long ss its near a pub/cafe so I can grab some scram if weather not up to flying…
Been flying 3 years, take every opportunity to unleash the MP. Drop me a line if you fancy a meet. Happy to travel.
Flying 3 years and know nothing about video editing, if anybody wants to share their skills, would make a brilliant workshop.
Looking forward to chatting and meeting up with a few of you.
Good afternoon, Mick. Welcome to GADC. Great to have you with us. You’re in the right place when it comes to video editing, just take a gander at our talented members’ offerings in the Media category and then ask any questions you have - you’ll get an answer…or several.
For those in the north that are unsure, this is Boothwood Reservoir.
On the left of that pic is the M62 motorway and on the right of the water is the pub (@mickydd did say he wanted a meet near a pub!) and they’ve a huge overflow car park out the back.
We could ask if they’d perhaps cordon that off for a morning (I’ve never seen anyone in there) in return for us giving them some free photos of their pub and us buying some hot food - as I’m sure we’ll need it after flying there
Thanks for that @PingSpike know it well.
Excellent access from M62,The Turnpike pub opposite.
Plenty to view with reasonable LOS.
Only had one issue where a couple of military aircraft were practising some low flying. I thought the rumbling from behind was my stomach.
Tried to get a quick snap as I was reducing height.
Yes, am sure they would do us a deal.
Pics and videos, will leave that to @sparkman999 , knows what he is doing there.
Wind was S 11-15km/h according to weather.com
It was a bit fresh, just like a summer day in Yorkshire.
Welcome to the GADC !, we have loads of members in your area and I am sure they will rally to get you to a “Meet Up” somewhere that way.
Feel free to ask advice, no matter how stupid it may be.
I am sure our Moderators would love you to Introduce yourself properly, and they will be along to steer you right.
Once Again Welcome !
No problem at all, happy to meet up. Best not to put your contact details direct in a post, I have sent you a private message, just click on the symbol at the top right of your screen, look forward to hearing from you
No worries Mick (Michael) (now where have I heard that line?)
Anyway, you will get use to the way the Forum works, it is always daunting when you first post, thinking “Have I done it right”.
We are a great bunch of knowledgeable people, who like you fly drones for fun, for business, or just cos they are there !.
We love a bit of banter ,as you will find out, we sometime take they “peewee”, but it’s all in harmless fun.
In general we have great laugh and Meet Up ,where ever possible.
So relax, it will all come in time.
Michael, you will find a great deal of information in posts around the site.
We post up pictures that we have taken, plough through problems that members have, just chime in a conversation if you feel like it, everyone has an opinion.
