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

Hello everyone and thanks for the warm welcome. Thanks to Milkmanchris for the advice and direction. In answer to PingSpice, I have about £1000 pound to spend i like the dji air 2s and the Hubsan Zino 2+ I also like the Fimi x822 v2 but would be grateful for any advice and ideas from you all.

@Coll welcome from Middlesbrough

Thank you

Hello and welcome from sunny Gateshead!

Thank you

Hi Coll welcome from the Black Country.

Forget the Hubsan, forget the Fimi, get a DJI Mini 3 Pro or just the Mini 3, much, much better, and you can get them fixed when you break it!

Hi Coll

Welcome from North Yorkshire.

I’ve found this a great place to find useful info when I first hit my drone which was a mini 3 pro.

Thanks Hotrodspike. I did like the price of the Hubsan and Fimi for what you get but like you say its a waste of money if they develop a fault.


Thank you. I have found a very warm welcome
