Newbie in Bedfordshire Alert!

Hello all.

I’m in Flitwick and a total newbie to drones and the club.

I have a DJI Mini 2 with fly more pack and looking forward to getting out and learning to fly it.

Registered for CAA Operator ID and thinking of getting a Flyer ID even though the weight is below what requires it.


Hi @Flitwick-David and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

Hi David ,
Welcome to GADC, you have come to the right place as loads of good tips and advise here .
I would say yes to getting the flyer ID anyway and also have a look at joining FPVUK for the public liability insurance for added piece of mind .

Thanks Scotty appreciate your thoughts. Currently looking at the BMFA’s British Drone Flyers membership as I used to be a member but will also check out your suggestion.
