Hi from Bingley

Hi Everyone. I’m Mark from Bingley, West Yorkshire, or to be more precise Cottingley, where the fairies came from (Google it!)

I’ve got a DJI Mini 4 Pro a couple of weeks ago but as yet have not had chance to fly it - other commitments last weekend and British weather this!!

It’s my fifth drone - 3 Mini 2s (1 lost in a tree, 1 bird strike into water, another in a tree!), 1 Mini 3 Pro (not managed to lose yet!) and now Mini 4 Pro!

Probably going to sell the Mini 3 but not sure yet.

I don’t get to fly as much as I’d like; I need to get more practise (practice?) and be more creative.

Looking forward to the forum!

Hi Mark - welcome to GADC :+1: :+1: :+1:

Welcome Mark, i’m just down the road from you Leeds :fist:

There’s a few of us around in Gods country :+1:

Hi @markfull :wave:t2:

I’m just the other side of the Pennines :slight_smile:

I’m just adding this to my list of things to do today:

/cross Mark off the list of people allowed to fly my drones

Practice :blush:

There’s a lot to explore, pull up a chair :smiley:


ToDo list: Good point, well made! :rofl: Although to be fair I think I’ve learned my lesson now! And with the Mini 3 & 4 there is obsticle avoidence, although my daughter in law pointed out that maybe the second one I had should have had that!!

Welcome to the group, Mark.

I’m the other side of the hill from you in Otley. Like you I recently received a Mini4Pro (again thank you GADC) and it’s made me think about thinning out my current fleet. I just wish the weather would improve and I can do it the justice it deserves.
