Hi Rob - welcome to GADC :+1: :+1: :+1:

@Rob-1468 Hi Rob welcome to the club, bit spoiled what done shall I take out today?

Welcome Robert to GADC :clap: :clap:

I will be flying my drone in Westward Ho! and Barnstaple areas this week as I often do.

Lovely part of the world. Enjoy!

Is that for social flying or work related ? I lived in Bideford for 15 years prior living in Cornwall near padstow ,but now reside at Barnstaple

I am a property developer and have a site in Westward Ho! (14 new bungalows) and looking at a new site in Barnstaple, or more Goodleigh way.

But I often fly socially in the area.

You got the ideal mix with work and play , and fantastic views from westward ho , apple done shipyard has just got a navy ship in for refit , I know someone who works there all hush hush , but lovely part of the world

Hi, I’m down in Exeter and looking for places to fly my P4, so I’ll look out for your recommendations!
