Just won a Mini 3 Pro - Preston, Lancs

My name is Paul, and I entered a Christmas competition on a photo website (Ephotozine) and blow me away, I won a (like new) Mini 3 Pro from MPB.

Now that’s what I call good luck!

Anyway, I have never considered having or using a drone, so a new experience for me.

I’ve taken the CAA test and registered an Operator and Flyer ID, and done my first few flights (which look amateurish compared to most I’ve looked at!)



Welcome to Grey Arrows Paul, and congrats :slight_smile:
