Please purchase the necessary equipment before joining the drive. The off road flag needs to be attached to your car. This equipment is very important in order for us to conduct a safe drive.

You do not need an air compressor on your first drive.

Hello! As Faateh said, a flag is very important - you can get a suction mount to start with if you don't want to permanently fix it to your car!
For the radio, you can easily get one from dragonmart or use this site if you don't have time to go there (they deliver!)

Lots of people use the Baofeng UV-5R which is AED 89 and there are videos on youtube to help you tune it - if you go to the shop they may even do it for you if you ask nicely!

Hope to see you Friday!
