Hi from Dover, Kent

#1

Hi All. After many years of flying RC planes, heli’s and DIY racing quadcopters, I am now the proud owner of a Mavic 2 Pro. As a pilot and photographer (in a former life!), I can appreciate the many virtues of this bird. I have taken a few photos, but hopefully with some decent weather and a bit more time, I will actually get some half decent photos. For me, its just for fun, so the only person to please is myself. I would appreciate any suggestions from members as to good locations around Dover for aerial photos. Happy (and safe) flying to you all.

Hi Steve / @FerryMan69 , and welcome to GADC. :+1:

An ever increasing number of our members also own a Mavic 2 Pro, and we have a small number with racing drones (complete with their own #racing-quads-self-bulilds-and-fpv category!). .

There’s a wealth of knowledge amongst the members, so ask away over on #questions-and-answers if there’s anything you need to know.

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 wood, some of whom I’m sure will come and say Hi.

(Don’t forget to add yourself to that map :+1: : How to add yourself to the Members Map )

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.

Please also take a moment to look at the Membership Levels section on our FAQ .

Welcome aboard!

I’m an expert!!! :rofl::rofl::rofl:
Hi Steve. In all seriousness, the WarMemorial is truly a great picture from above. And the Mavic 2 Pro handles wind way better than the original Pro in its default settings.
This may help:


Cheers

Thanks for the advice OzoneVibe. I have had a look at flight map, which is a great starting point. I have flown a few places, so I will have to enter my locations too, with a few pics to help others determine if its somewhere they might like to try out.

Ianinlondon… love the sense of humour, thats right up my street!

I have to say since flying the Mavic over the last few weeks I have found that even simple stuff at ground level takes on a whole new level of interest from above. Standby for photos… thank the lord for digital, that’s all I can say… 35mm film would be sooo expensive!

Hi Steve, Welcome!

How I got my name… from my mum!! ha ha… no seriously … a mix of living in Dover (and Dover being Europe’s business ferry port) and a good taste in music (Don’t pay the FerryMan… etc). I just want to add a big ‘thank you’ for a friendly welcome.
