    Hi I'm Darren from Edinburgh.

    Recently bought a phantom 3 standard. New to RC flying but have been into nitro RC cars in the past. My main reason for buying the phantom is for photography and the unique perspective you can get from it. Also so far it's a lot of fun just to be out flying it.

    I got it a few weeks ago and have racked up a couple of hours of flying under my belt practicing with RTH etc. My next practice flights will be using Atti mode to try and get used to non idiot proof flying :)

    With all the bad press recently it's tough being new to the hobby when out flying. I've been taking it out of town and into the countryside but still the looks you get from some people is like you have just killed someone!! Hey ho I guess that's the problems we face.

    Anyway look forward to being part of the forum and learning from here.

    Cheers Darren

    Welcome Darren. I hail from Edinburgh originally but live in Sassenach land. I miss my Scotch pies and Bridies.

    Happy flying

    Pete

    Welcome to the jungle, Darren. Would love to get up to Thurso someday to shoot. Scotland seems to have way too many beautiful locations!
