Hi From Edinburgh

Hi and thanks to PingSpike for the invite.

After a few years of various cheap drones decided to bite the bullet and get the Mavic Air as I had a small bonus from work. I’ve only managed to take it out for the 1 flight so far because it was so windy but can already see how much better it is to everything I had before. Even in beginner mode it was good… I will admit to putting it in sport mode too. That was scary fast in the small quarry.

Got a few hobbies I’d like to use the drone with but mainly Kayaking, Mountain bikes, Motorbikes and hill walking, not sure how it will all work out but should be fun.

If I actually manage to get something other than my fat arse sitting on a log (which is all I got the other day) I’ll post it up to see.

Well that will do for a quick intro



Welcome John :wave:

Hi John / @Natts, and welcome to GADC. :+1:

A significant number of our members also own the Mavic Air … so you are amongst good company.

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

The forum’s search functions are a very efficient way to find previous threads and posts that might already have covered topics in which you are interested in learning more or answer that niggling question but, when this doesn’t turn up what you’re after, there’s a wealth of knowledge amongst the members, so ask away over on #questions-and-answers.

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!

Welcome to GADC John.

The coolest drone club on the net :sunglasses:.

Spent a far bit of time in your neck of the woods as I lived in Inverkeithing for 12 years.

it is Loch Ore I am looking to try some of the paddling and drone together… I think Longcraig and inverkeithing are too close to airport… but might be wrong…

Thanks for the call out on my “Welcome” page. Meant to reply here, but accidentally placed it in my own page…
My first flights outside my garden were in Braidburn Park, Fairmilehead Park and Colinton Park, but I moved to Braid Hills for my first extended flight. You can see the results in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXAHTNJ9704 , where you will note that I too have a Mavic Air.
Quite happy to meet up sometime, exchange views of the kit we have, and share tips. Send me a direct message if you are interested.
Best wishes,

Hi @Natts, Welcome along

Welcome John,
I also have a Mavic Air.

Their are a few handy modes in the assisted flying modes that would be great for tracking friends on their machines!
