Newbie in Leamington, Warwickshire


I joined the forums a week or so ago, with no drone, but now I own a Mavic Pro.

My first flight was on Saturday, mainly slow and close to familiarise myself with the controls.

I’m keen to meet other flyers, so Ill keep an eye out for meet-ups around and about The Midlands.

Here’s a silly snippet from my first day out. It looks a lot faster and closer than it really was! I’m pretty sure I have accidentally done something in the editing to speed it up! :rofl: Lots more practice required, both flying and editing.


Hi David / @DMZer0 , and welcome to GADC.

Plenty of other members with the Mavic Pro who’ll be happy to offer assistance if ever you need any. Ask away over on #questions-and-answers. :+1:

If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members and you’ll see there are a few other members in your neck of the wood.

(Thanks for having added yourself to that map! :+1:

Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown in the past … which, obviously, doesn’t necessarily mean they are still OK to fly and, as always, any pilot needs to check that everything’s OK before flying at any of them.

Welcome. Always up for a meetup if im free. I’m in coventry but mobile. I aint that good a flyer but learning fpv.

Must check it out. Any quiet common ground there?

Yeah, the Cotswolds…a lot of space to get away from people. Especially early in the morning
