Hi from Newcastle upon Tyne

Hi all,

new to the forum but not to drones (well, had a couple of years break). Started way back with the Phantom 1 before the 2 axis gimbal was even released and then upgraded to the 3 axis Zenmuse and Flamewheel F450 and F550.

Had a crash with the 550 due to pilot error (didn’t notice that the Compass puk and flight controller were facing opposite directions) and decided to sell up and invest in my DSLR gear.

The boss who is on here as m2bfx bought himself a Spark and then a Mavic Air so obviously the fire started smoulder inside me again and I got myself a Mavic Pro.

Its amazing to see how fay this technology has advanced in just a short few years!

Good times!

Hi! And welcome!

I did the P2/H33D/GoPro3Black to MP leap, and it is astonishing the difference!
The make, and that they fly, seem to be about the only similarities! :wink:
