Hey all, new drone owner in Norfolk based in Norwich and work in Stalham.
Any of you guys meet up to fly or have any good places to fly. I went and flew my Air at Wroxham Broad yesterday.

Thanks

Hi @Amo82 and welcome to Grey Arrows :smiley:

There’s a whole bunch of GADC members that meet up around your neck of the woods from time to time :+1:t2:

Check out the #where-to-fly-in-the-uk:club-meetups section too!

Hi Pau / @Amo82 , and welcome to GADC.

Many other members have the Mavic Air too - so you’re in good company, and plenty of user experience to draw on if ever you need to ask for help with anything.

If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members. This is a relatively new feature so not everyone is on there as yet, but I’m sure there are other members in your neck of the woods that will come and say Hi that may also have ideas on locations.

(Don’t forget to add yourself to that map : Members’ Location Map - A Guide)

Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown that might be of assistance.:

Welcome @Amo82 I’m over Yarmouth way but don’t get over to Norwich to fly though, as much as I’d like to but the wife has other ideas!

@Amo82,
I regularly fly in Eaton Park, and round near the University Lake on Bluebell Road (both of these places are a 2 minute car ride for me).
You just have to watch out for the occasional Air Ambulance that may come over to land at the Hospital.
Common sense just prevails, and lower your altitude to 30 or 40 feet, till it passes.
Eaton Park is less busy early morning, or late afternoon (before it gets dark)
I also fly from the Hill (near enough ,next to Bluebell Road, opposite North Park Avenue) that overlooks the Lake.
I have taken a few New Members of the Forum over there for there first flights.
