    Hi everyone, there's not a lot for me to say at the moment as I don't even have my Phantom yet. I ordered it today, a PA3 plus spare battery, and it should arrive tomorrow. Here's hoping for decent weather at the weekend!

    Hi guys,

    I'm in Glasgow and, believe it or not, it's a beautiful sunny day! Cold and crisp, no wind - just as I like it.

    Well since I last posted things have perked up here considerably on the Cromarty Firth.... might get out to overfly an old fish trap in the bay after all - once the tide drops...

    This will also be my first meet so I am in kinda the same boat as you. The meet is at Ravenscraig park, Kirkcaldy, Fife at 1pm. Its just a get together of a few Facebook groups. Its not just Phantoms that will be there. There's meant to be a few different drones to have a look at. One of the Facebook groups I am on is called Scottish Multirotors. have a wee look when you get a chance.

    I am also going to join a club called Kinross Radio Model Flying Club. It has all sorts of RC's from Helicopters, plains to drones. Will be good for meeting people with similar interests.

    I was a member of KRFC a few years back. Mostly flying gliders and some others. What's your real name if you don't mind me asking? I'll have an ask around when I get there. (I'm shortish, bald and 60, will have on a dark blue jacket) Will check out Scottish Multirotors.

    They look great. My real name is Finlay, I will have my 2 Border Collie dogs with me at Kirkcaldy as its a good park for them to have a run around.

    Good stuff neeb, I won't miss you with the dugs. :) Here's a quick link to a landing at Kinross with my Skyeasy glider. Great fun with that wee thing. :)

    I bet the drone is much easier to fly than the glider. What Phantom do you have?
