New Mini 2 Pilot from West Yorkshire

Hi All,
My name is Mark and I recently picked up and had my first flight with the DJI Mini 2. Other than doing a very quick flight at castle hill (huddersfiled) yesterday, I am itching to get back out and do some flying. Looking for some great places for beginners to get some more confidence ready for a week break I am taking with my partner in about a months time and would love to get some shots whilst out and about!

Welcome Mark yeah the mini 2 is really fun and easy to just pack and go. Im always just nipping out for a quick fly now.

Hi there

Hi Neil,
You are not wrong! I did a couple more flights before the rain yesterday and was feeling a little more ambitious. Still want to keep the drone closer to me but getting braver at height.
Did have one time where didn’t have LOS for about a min, but the RTH feature really came into its own!

Welcome to the group, i’m in Leeds :fist:

I did a flight at castle hill ages ago, good place but wish i had my thermals on lol.
Try tempsie early evening :wink:
