New in Manchester

Hi, I am new on here and bought an HS175D, purely as a hobby and pleasure flying to entertain my grandson. I didn’t want to spend on a Mavic Mini 2 in case it flew off into the distance, never to be seen again, first time used.

I have Flyer and Operator ID’s and am waiting for decent weather for a first flight, but am trying to learn where to and not to fly.


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


Hi @astra1982 and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

Welcome once again!

Welcome Roger, whereabouts in Sunny Manchester are you from? I am from the south, in Timperley :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi, I’m in the City centre, but looking to move back to South Mcr sometime in the not to distant future. I lived in Timperley as a toddler.

Thanks for the welcome, I have a lot to learn.

Thanks for the welcome and info.:+1:

I good place to fly is Turn Moss in Stretford, when I was learning I would find a quiet spot, away from the dog walkers :roll_eyes:
