Newbie from Bexhill

Hey everyone, new boy from Bexhill here. I’ve just got a Mini4 Pro. Steep learning curve but I’m sure I’ll crack the whole ‘push the stick right and the drone turns right when flying away from you and push the stick right when flying towards you and the drone goes left’ thing soon!! Flown close to Bexhill beach and the gulls are troublesome but apart from that it’s going ok. Hopefully I will learn a lot from being part of this group.

Welcome to GADC.

Spent a lot of my childhood in Bexhill as my parents had a flat on Galley Hill.

There used to be the ruins of a house at the top - or the foundations anyway. I guess nature has covered them over since the early 80s!

I’m also a newbie here but not to drones & I’m also in Bexhill. Regarding the seagull thing, it is nesting season so birds will be very protective of their young. There are a fair few nests especially around the DLWP. You could stick on some red reflective tape, that seems to work for me and also fly high.
