Worth noting - from the CAA website.

EDIT - You can fly one if you have a spotter though at least.

As long as you bring someone else along to keep a visual, you’re exempt.

Now post the exemption part, where a 2nd person can act as a spotter.
Oops. Fair enough - still, worth noting that you can't fly these without a spotter anyway.
I wouldn't entertain a drone that couldn't do 50mph
how to land this thing?
What you'll love about this is that it automatically handles cross wind so will orientate at an angle to the direction of desired travel. Only the brave will fly it on fpv with a view to the side and not able to see what is ahead of you!
This is a fun toy and the take off "chuck" is pretty clever. the landing feels a bit rough when you point it at the ground.
Is the Tx/Rx downgraded for the UK as per DJI? If so is there a workaround?

A controlled crash! you aim for a large patch of grass and they circle down then "land" on their belly. Not quite as elegant as a Mavic Pro!

The default is actually a linear landing (straight line) and I prefer that . Personally I am used to piloting RC planes so I just fly it in low into the headwind and then hit the land button. It's very easy to do because you don't have to worry about keeping it straight you can concentrate on the height and speed. If there is some wind it will come down in a very short distance, otherwise it can glide quite far so allow enough space.

Very nice to use by the way, and never had anything go wrong. Mine is in perfect nick still.
