New member from Basingstoke, Hampshire

Hi, sorry should have done this a few weeks ago. I am new to DJI and about a month ago got myself the DJI Mini 2 fly more combo. I am now 50 years old and looking for friends who love drones as well. I am based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

If anyone knows some good spots around the Basingstoke area that i can fly with no problems please let me know.

Great choice on the M2, enjoy it while the weather is still semi reasonable

Hi Murray
Welcome to GADC, I live close to Basingstoke and have flown at White Down near Kingsclere, Mapledurwell, Hook, Ellisfield and Cliddesden areas but have had most fun at nearby coastal locations such as Studland, Portsmouth etc.
Basingstoke area has a lot to offer but you can’t beat getting out and about…
