Hello folks. I just started flying a drone about 6 weeks ago. So much to learn and am happy to be a member here. Luckily for me I live on ten acres in the foothills of North Carolina so I have a great place to learn. There are lots of trees around but I also have open land. So far, no accidents. Yesterday I was excited to be able to fly at a private grass airstrip a few miles away. There I had 1,800 feet of open space to go back and forth without worrying about trees - well, except on either side of the strip. I've just recently retired from work life so have time to learn all I can about drone flying. I am studying for my Part 107 certificate, but there's no hurry.
