Hi there! Before you post, have you selected the most appropriate category for your new topic?
Thanks for accepting me into the club…
My name is Graham and a beginner pilot and still learning.
I live in Maidstone, Kent and the ripe old age of 72 but mentally about 14
I have registered with the CAA as I have a small drone LS 6S6 150g and a Holystone 700E 500g
I have marked both drones and keen to fly and get some shots as I am a photographer.
I am concerned when I read the accounts of people being approached by aggressive anti drone brigade. Also it seems that its hard to know where I can fly with all the silly rules about country parks etc. Any tips and advice is most welcome .
