    A big hello from uk, I have been flying RC for a year, I started with the view to get a camera quad, so two weeks ago today I purchased a P3P, very easy to fly, just waiting for good weather in uk to get some decent photos and vids.

    Hi Wallyboy, That name brings all sorts of thoughts to me. :)

    Yup, the weather here in Wales has not been good for flying either, wind, rain, fog etc, so with that as well as other things in life taking up time I haven't flown my P3P since November. Just topped the batteries up a few times and kept the firmware up to date. Actually, I never flew on the previous firmware. o_O

    Although I bought the machine for a couple of video projects I was working on, I did also do some videos of my son on his weekend sportscar track days. So I'll probably do some more of those when the weather gets warmer. I hate standing around in the cold.

    Wouldn't happen to know anyone from Wiveliscombe, Somerset, would you? One day I'm gonna get lucky and find someone from there to correspond with.

    They have a Parish radio station in that village, perhaps they'll give a shout-out for you if you email them. :D
