Completely new to drone flying, although I’ve been flying flight sims on computer for years (I know it isn’t the same!) Got the bug after flying a friend’s DJI Mini3 with twin stick.
Recently bought myself a DJI Avata with the Goggles2 setup (and their joystick controller) and absolutely loving it. VERY easy to fly and have fun. Pilot for about 4 hours now.
I’ve joined the club to see if there are other members around Cambridge to fly alongside, or to get recommendations where to fly (or not to fly).
Any flying tips from FPV owners (especially Avata) or photographic/film experts that can help me get amazing shots, would be VERY welcome.
