Hi from South Notts


#1

Hi Everyone, I’m Simon (aka Slim) from South Notts despite having a Leicestershire post code. I use to fly R/C nitro and gliders but got bored with it and recently bought a Mavic Pro Platinum Drone. I’m rather impressed so far.
Despite living about as far from the sea as you can get, I’m a very keen sea kayaker and plan to use my drone for capturing some of the amazing inaccessible places I get to around our coast.
I’m also interested in getting the CAA “permission”, so would be interested in any good or not so good experiences with regards to training.

Welcome aboard the good ship GADC.
Someone will be along shortly to formally welcome you no doubt. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy the absolute best and friendliest Drone club. And of course there’s no such thing as a daft question…
If you haven’t done so, please add yourself to the members map.
