If you can afford hundreds of pounds for a drone, you can find 17p a week to fly it.

Honestly, some of the snowflakes on here.

I live right next door to an airport and have no problems. DJI drones will alert you (and in some zones it will refuse to fly) when you're in a restricted area.

You'll be bored of a drone within a day if you don't have some plan for it, it's an expensive novelty if you don't. I take my drone on day trips, sometimes just to the beach and fly it far out to sea, cliff edges, around harbours where cruise ships dock, fly it around the moors etc. For me it's akin to photography where you make an effort to go some place to use it only you can photograph much higher up.

"Costly CAA registration " how much does it cost? £9 IIRC

I read the mini don't need a license?


Correct, anything over 250g requires the license so this creeps in just under the guidelines

My point is the costly part. I'm well aware of the rules.
If you miss out on this deal it's only £6 more on Amazon
Been looking to get this recently. The fly more cobo seems to be much better value as it can be found for ~£460 and includes 2 extra batteries and carry bag + more.

Note the fine print on the max range for this drone - outside North America it's 2km not 4km due to transmitter power. Bit of a bummer as the [with interference] range will be likely be much less..can anyone comment on the light-urban range they get? Reviews seem very inconsistent on this. Really want this but so hard to justify 🙈
£339 at wex with a code. £30 off for the flymore combo too. Limited stock. Bagged one last week.
Above 250g, it's not a license. It's registration. It's very straight forward. The license is PfCO - for commercial operations and gets a replaced in July.

Also I only paid £9nfor my license. Its nothing really! But I'd still liema a mini even though I have the Mavic 2 Pro
I have the fly. More combo and whilst a great drone the range is a serious let down. I struggle to get 1km

Considering you can only legally fly within line of sight, what's the issue?
Exactly. And it's a budget drone.
Waiting for the £300 or £400 (Fly more) mark to bite at this.. Should’ve gone for the £315 Currys eBay deal a few weeks back

Anyone have any recent experience with eGlobal? You can get this off there for around £300 using codes..

If £10 is expensive you really need to be re-thinking a drone purchase.

That's why you need to have a good think before you buy one.

There are often areas , model flying clubs etc you can use. Land owners permission needed in most cases. Plenty of options if you dig around.

I bought the drone this week from Amazon werehouse, fly more combo was £400 and I went for it.
The drone has emergency auto return to home feature, so when you loose the signal, it simply comes back to you. Loosing signal wouldn't mean that you end up loosing the drone
It's an expensive toy, but if you want a legitimate drone with a better range, you end up paying at least twice the price :/
This seems to be a perfect holiday drone, as it doesn't take up to much space

Unfortunately the range will very according to the environment, more metal and steel means the signal will be bounced around and degraded

However you are breaking UK law to fly any remotely controlled device (plane/helicopter/multi rotor) out of your own line of sight which makes such range questions irrelevant

For me it's not so much max range but signal reliability at distance. If it has power for 4km I'd expect it to go say 1km without issue..a lower power rating would increase the chance of FPV [live view] dropouts at shorter ranges. Always good to know it can fly further than you'd ever want and there are some hills/valleys I'd fly around that make a 1km recorded flight seem fairly short. Depends on where you're flying and what you want to capture in the shot of course. A drone this size your gonna lose LOS pretty quick anyway.

Signal interference and competition from radio waves (e.g. WiFi) will play a much bigger role than reflection from metals.

How can any consumer question about a defining feature of a product be irrelevant? Laws aren't written in stone and UK drone laws do not apply to every country - this small drone is targeting travellers. Besides you can get permission in the UK to fly without direct LOS..
No-one cares about the drone code. Even if you fly out of sight you're only breaking a civil regulation, so you CAN'T be prosecuted. The worst the police could do if they caught you (unlikely considering there aren't exactly a huge number of officers out on the beat nowadays, so chances of being discovered breaking the code in the first place are pretty small) is fine you, so nothing would happen.

Don’t follow the rules. Do a basic risk assessment, keep away from people and property (50m minimum). If you have no intention to cause problems, you most likely won’t.

Yes totally agree with your comments, I've always wanted a drone ans the mini is a good entry point and i bought it exactly for the holiday reason as i am 'hoping' to be going to Lombok later in the year. I can see myself upgrading at some point depending on the regs

Thank you mate
I'm carrying the Mini around in a sling bag (from peak design) - phone connected for quick deploy.

We own an Inspire 2 and phantom 4 pro and there's no way you can carry around like this of course. My only gripe is no manual control of shutter speed. But that could still effectively come as DJI just added manual white balance which was a deal breaker for me.

USB-C would've been nice too.

Great first 'starter' drone.

Also despite my experience (75hrs flying PfCO) my enthusiasm got the better of me and i and smacked it into some branches - thing escaped unscathed! I've been taking it on my daily exercise to get the odd shot.

Flights are logged so count towards your flying hours.

And this sort of logic explains why these laws were introduced. You can ignore them but it will only mean that more stringent rules, or a ban could be brought in.
