Evening all, Jim from London here, I was given a Holy stone HS110G (I do a lot of photography and my brother thought I might like it) it was the first time I’d flown a drone it was a lot of fun, however after a short while I realised the camera wasn’t particularly good and the handling was not particularly responsive if there was any wind at all, so here I am 4 weeks later with a DJI A2s, a A2 c of c, as well as an article 16 under my belt!! This flying lark is blinking addictive isn’t it (not to mention expensive ) so that’s me!
