    Hi Thank you for the membership
    Just ordered a p3a should be here tomorrow :)
    Bought a Hubsan x4 to learn to fly with. Thought its better to smash a cheap multi rotor than a p3a while i learn.
    Any local clubs etc in yorkshire near selby?

    Great, you have alot of coastal towns and marinas then there is the countryside and dartmoor which is very open and no one can bother you. That is my bigest tip when you get your phantom i dont know if you have had one before but they get a lot of attention and you have to be careful and concentrate on what your doing and dont get distracted.

    Welcome to the forum fellow Brit.

    Not from Yorkshire but from London and the worst bit too Central London to be precise :(

    The only good place I get to fly is the Parks, went down to Bournemouth Beach and had the best time there with my P3 due to the open area and Sea.

    I do agree with Elheapo, it does attract unnecessary people which most of the time is great but can get annoying when your just trying to enjoy a good flying time with the P3.

    You will love the P3 by the way :cool:

    Welcome, have you had your first flight yet?

    Watch your hands tremble the first time it takes off (at least mine did) Lol

    Hi, from the UK to, Portsmouth. got my P3 advanced Wednesday, had a couple of nervous flights already. Still reluctant to go to high but I'm sure i will gain a bit more confidence.
    Worried about the motors shutting down mid air when I hold the left stick down? It states in the book it will kill the motors? Surely not mid flight? Any advice? Thanks

    Hi, I'm new on here and I'm in East Yorkshire. When my P3A finally arrives I'll be out on the coast. Lots of open spaces up here.

    Hi fella, I'm in Bedfordshire, don't worry about crashing, the phantom 3 is pretty much idiot proof, just fly it gently until you get used to it
