Hello everyone! My name is Mark and I'm new to the drone hobby as well as the forum. I'm a web designer, photographer, etc. based out of San Diego and do a lot of traveling up and down the coast. My enthusiasm for the possibilities using the drone has been somewhat dampened over the last couple of days, more as a I realize how much noise these things make. I'm not sure why I thought they were quiet, but I find myself crossing out a lot of areas I wanted to fly at for my photography hobby. Mostly state parks up and down the coast, as well as some beaches here at home. I'm a big nature lover and can't even deal with people on their phones during a hike and being loud, so I can imagine spoiling what would otherwise be peaceful scenery with my machine. That said, I've enjoyed flying this week, minus a crash caused by being distracted in my backyard. Nothing too big, but a 7 foot drop to concrete nonetheless. Luckily everything is fine so I caught a break there and learned a lesson. Anyways, I'm glad to be on here and hope to learn a lot from the rest of you. Already gotten lost in a few threads that taught me a ton and look forward to reading more.
