    Hello,

    I’m from Cape Town, and we are in the middle of our rainy winter, so not much sun at the moment!!

    Recently became the owner of a Spark and am currently learning to fly ... interesting!! Lost the drone on my first flight and it took me 3 hours to find it!! Needless to say I’m a lot more cautious now!!

    Hope to learn a lot from this forum.

    Cheers for now
    John.

    Yip, I`m also from wet Cape town! Been flying my Spark since Oct last year (500 Km) and still learning! I wanted to go Air but could not see the money spent for what I get, not worth it. Enjoy flying - it could become a lifestyle. Cheers
