I’m a new member from Kent (Walderslade - so Maidstone/Medway) and I’ve been browsing for a few days, but finally got lured in to posting because I felt like a good rant about PSPOs…
I originally became interested in the hobby via a colleague - who would often bring his little racing FPV to the office to troubleshoot/fix - back in 2017. Fast forward to 2020, I began a few custom builds (both fixed wing and multi-rotor) - but had a few issues getting parts during COVID, and then my family grew, and then I moved house… and all momentum was lost! I’m hoping to finally complete those projects in time for the summer though.
I like to geek out on a lot of the tech more than anything though; be it tinkering with electronics or browsing firmware source code (i.e. iNav) to try and work out how stuff actually works. I currently fly a DJI Mini 2 - on the rare occasion that life, work, and the weather actually align anyway!

I must admit, I’ve stumbled across quite a few interesting reads on here… although, I’m not going to lie - I was bit surprised that I found myself reading the entirety of the 650+ posts about the drone lost during a speed attempt in a storm
