Newbie from Bridlington

Hi my name Chris looking for a new hobby after retirement tried a cheap £100 drone useless in the windy conditions near the east coast so just ordered a DJI Mini 4 Pro. Would welcome any advise before it’s arrival and my first test flight.

Hi Chris, I too am just up the road a little way at Filey. Retired also, and have a mini 3 pro. Literally not got out very much, maybe good for a catch up somewhere along the way.
