Hi I’m new to drone flying (6 months) and I came across this club so I wanted to join
Welcome to the forum, Lee.
I spent 9months in Taunton, back in 1992, while I was stationed at CSOS Culmhead. A very nice area of the country.
Hi nidge yes I know culmhead well and yes it’s a nice part of the country if you don’t live here lol.
Hi Lee / @Obi-wan-kenobi, and welcome to GADC.
A significant number of our members also own the M2P … 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.
(Don’t forget to add yourself to that map : How to add yourself to the Members Map )
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.
Welcome aboard! … and may the Force be with you.
Yes I will have a little play with this website and try to find my way around.
Many thanks lee
Hello and welcome.
Hi buddy, please feel very welcome! You’ll find young, old, novice and pro alike. No judgements, feel free to ask anything and search a very comprehensive database! We ALL started somewhere!
I have an M2P also. It’s a pretty comprehensive drone with tons of features. Don’t under estimate the value of research but equally, take every opportunity to get out and practice, practice, practice. If you can find a member with a similar aircraft in your area, take the plunge and meet up. Always learn something new from flying with others.
Lozzer I would love to find someone with the same one, as I have no idea of the settings and what they do, I mean at the moment I’m just flying it and getting use to the controls as I’ve never had anything like this before lol.
Have a look on @ianinlondon Youtube Channel he has some very informative videos on how to get the best from your drone, a lot of the settings for the DJI drones are fairly much the same.
It will help you to trawl around Youtube while the weather is shite, and enable you to get the best out of the Mavic 2 Pro, it has many fabulous features.
Ok chrisjohnbaker I will do that thanks, at the moment I only have 1 battery so I want to make the most of flying but one day I will play around with the settings and see what they do
I’m sure everyone will make you feel very welcome so enjoy the ride
