Hello From the Northwest

Hello all, yes another member form the northwest area, seems the northern powerhouse is stong here !

Just collected a MPP yesterday so plenty of reading to do, hopefully maiden flight over the weekend, weather permitting that is.

Located in south Manchester.

Hi there @JonD and welcome to Grey Arrows :smiley:

We’re getting a really strong North West member base lately! Sorry southerners :rofl:

Don’t be afraid to ask any questions, we’re all here to help each other :+1:

Welcome to the club

I joined faily recently and had such a warm welcome that I keep coming back it’s by far the best group of people to talk about what we love

There are members who have inspires down to sparks and beyond.

If you need anything let us know and I’d be happy to help.


Hi @chrishackney1985 and welcome to Grey Arrows, great to have you on board :smiley:

Maiden flight completed today, did the three batteries, nothing fancy just stayed in beginer mode to get the feel of it as been out of RC flying for a few years.

Loved the MPP, gave my 10yr old daughter ago, she was really good with it, especially as she’s never flown before.


Great news!

I think I stayed in beginner mode for the first three or four flights :blush:
