Hi. I’m Maff. 50 year old drone enthusiast. Living in Cambridge. Currently have a DJI SPARK & have just purchased a DJI mini 2, yet to be unboxed. I’d like to find others near me to fly and learn and share ideas with. Find places within a short range to fly my drones. Though I’ll probably sell the spark now I have the mini 2. Looking forward to being active in this group & sharing ideas

Hi Maff - welcome to GADC
Hi and thanks. Looking forward to getting some ideas and finding places to fly my new DJI Mini 2
Hi @I_AM_MAFF, I’m in Suffolk. I’m not sure if that’s any use? Little Glemham between Saxmundham and Wickham Markt, IP13 0BA. I have a Mini 2 as well, not flown at all, just done the research time and time again. Was hoping to give it a whirl this weekend, but it’s a tad cold once you have frozen inside the house!
Hey here. I know the area quite well. I am a Suffolk boy, born and raised in pswich. Moved to Cambridge 12 years go but come back often to see family & friends. I’ve had DJI Spark for about 4 years and have just bought the Mini 2. It’s not even out of the box yet but might get a maiden flight this weekend
Give me a shout if you come home, who knows, I may even have achieved flight by then!
Maff? Hmm, don’t suppose you have GPS devices in your pocket?
Why is that?
Ooh, someone called Maff has long been involved with speed cameras, hope you stick to the drone speed limits
Definitely not me I can assure you. I’m a responsible flyer. Infact. The highest I’ve been is 300ft and probably not much further than that away from me I’ve always got VLOS. I am registered too
Hi Maff, also near Cambridge in St.Ives recently upgraded to mini 2 and loving it! Be good to be able to share locations/experiences
Hi. Nice to meet a ‘local flyer’ I only fly at Grantchester because its the only scenic place nearly I can legally fly, no airport! . I’ve flown there 2 or 3 times with the MINI 2. It would be good time find other places within easy reach to fly my little beast and get new footage. Shame the weather is getting colder and crapper though
Never thought of granchester but yes good call I’m assuming getting over Cambridge is difficult? Need to pull myself together and get out for a sunrise over fen Drayton lakes with mist etc
