Hi from Nottinghamshire

Just joined - please to meet everyone. Just looking for possibly flying sites and recommendations.

Hi Richard (another one) @Rgascoigne71
Welcome to this madhouse
what do you fly?
Do be afraid to ask any questions we all have to and still are learning


#3

Cheers!

I’m flying a Mavic Air - LOVE IT. Put a few hours in so far and can’t believe how good it is. I’ve been looking for some possible clubs to fly at in my area. Been doing some ad-hoc trial runs with good results. I’ve got the do’s and don’ts from a few apps i have from Drone Assist (NATS) and have public liability insurance just in case.

Welcome @Rgascoigne71

You’ve certainly come to the right place.

Im relatively new to drone flying and the members of GADC have been a (constant) great help! Brilliant place to learn. :+1:

Im also from Notts near Retford. :ok_hand:

Happy flying chap!

Hello and welcome from another Richard :sunglasses:

Hi Richard / @Rgascoigne71 , and a belated welcome to GADC.

There quite a number of Mavic Air owners on the forum, so you are amongst good company, and plenty of knowledge to answer any questions you may have, that can be posted on #questions-and-answers . :+1:

If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members. Whilst not every member has added themselves, I’m sure there are other members in your neck of the woods that will come and say Hi that may also have ideas on locations.

Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown. This doesn’t mean that all these places can still be flown, but hopefully gives you some ideas to pursue.

Thanks @OzoneVibe - thanks for the kind welcome. :smile: I’ll look over the details now!
