Newbie from Southampton

Hi all … just got a DJI mini 3Pro and had my first flight today :smiley: drove around Weston shore and netley abbey looking for somewhere to fly but :chicken: out. So ended up at a mates house and had a fly from his back garden, as my place is in a no fly zone​:weary:. Be great if any local droners can point me to any good places to get some practice in without :poop::poop::poop: myself.

Welcome to the Grey Arrows, Paul. As @HantsFlyer (Paul) said, Calshot at low tide is a great place to fly and practice. Ashlet Creek is also a good spot.
Hopefully we three can met up when weather conditions and tide times permit.
