Have you seen our members map? (Click the burger-menu in the top right) You may find some pilots living near you. Feel free to add yourself to the members map too :+1:t2:

We’re a well established club with many knowledgeable members so it’s very likely that any issues you come across will have been discussed here before. Our discussion forum has very powerful search features which should help you find what you need but if you get stuck you can post a new question in the #questions-and-answers category.

And please feel free to add locations of your own too.

Well, I be a couple of week old newbie too…

I have never been in a online club that is as friendly and helpful as this one… there is nothing but people who want to help and pass on knowledge.
what really surprises me is number of new people joining.

Welcome #micky0121
I also use the Air2 which I think is a great camera drone.
