Hi, my name is Robin, well known on many forums as Northwood (Northwood Mediaworks, I host a forum for musicians there, I am also a composer and producer) and I am quite new to the world of drone piloting. I have been studying drones in general for a year or two, but only started to fly briefly in February 2018, and after three flights, the fourth was a fly away… my mistake totally. That was with an inexpensive Visuio HS809HW. It was not recovered for 3 months, ironically the day after I received my DJI Spark for my 60th birthday! Go figure!
So far have 22 flights under my belt. I have been learning and flying as much as time permits, and have tried to be a proponent of safety. I can see how those who are irresponsible in this hobby are going to quickly ruin it for those who respect the rules… which is very sad. So whilst I dont want to be perceived as a preacher, it might sound that way to some!
I am into multi-media so flying cameras are a natural progression for me. Have my sights on a Mavic Pro if $$ permit in a year or so.
Looking forward to reading and gaining further smarts here. Happy to help when I can also.
