    Thanks for keeping it simpler for us! πŸ‘

  2. Ivan Jdrakov on December 16, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    Thank God that here in Bulgaria there are no such things as rules and regulations hey, imagine I had to abide to some rules or something.. LOL

    Anyway, it’s like super cool that the UK is doing such awesome things to regulate the hobby…

    Here in Bulgaria, I guess all of Eastern Europe, it’s like we just really watch out not to upset anyone and not to damage any property.

    Else if we’re in public, like the street or so, we can film towards residential areas and buildings…

    I fly from my balcony al8the time, I fly over people on the stadium regularly, and also I fly above 120m, but for my last flights I’ve been keeping them all under 120m..


    Keep well and be safe bro!

    PS: I’m so happy that I got the Mavic Mini and the Mini 2 now.. Great toys they are…

    Why do I have to subscribe to you so often bro!?!?

    I mean I’ve already subscribed like more than 2 times for sure.. I come to the channel and it shows me unsubscribed!

    Anyway, I shall just keep subscribing, lol..

    Fair enough. I understand where this new drone restrictions are coming from. Already got my IDs and the process is quick. Fly safe everyone!

  5. Mike D on December 16, 2021 at 12:05 pm

    Given the DJI mini 2 is 249 grams against a 250 gram limit, surely as soon as you add the ‘operator ID’ tag to the drone it’ll tip the scale to 250?

  6. Del Mc on December 16, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    I’ve just watched this, and it explains everything so clearly. I’ve seen a few videos about registration and my head was confused at the end of it all. Now I know exactly what I need to do. Many thanks for the information. Del. πŸ‘

  8. Ard Schell on December 16, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    thanks for your explanation.
    is the UK flight license also valid in EU countries?
    and is an EU flight license also valid in the UK?

  9. EastAngliaUK on December 16, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    not put mine on my mini 2 yet but have my operator ID to show if anyone ask for it.

  10. Techno How on December 16, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    Hi do you know if DJI Mini 2 batteries discharge themselves?

  11. Bon Bon on December 16, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    Thanks for this information! Great work!

  12. Nathan Hoe on December 16, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    The thing is I can drive my rc car at 75+ mph and weighs 5kg nothing drone 35mph 250g loads of rules it just doesn’t add up

  13. Robert Hoyte on December 16, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    This video was so helpful. Thank you!

  14. stuart dronie on December 16, 2021 at 12:15 pm

  15. Trev on December 16, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    The hobby will only get stricter and stricter

  18. Exploreish on December 16, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    Great video! Please watch my first ever drone video using the DJI Mini 2!!

  19. Kymagination TV on December 16, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    Great video! Any recommendations on where to go for the insurance for work purposes?

  20. Wayne Pickard on December 16, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    Thank you I’ve been so worried about flying my mini 1 so this makes it seem worth having again. Fly time.

  21. 2236tommo on December 16, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    Straight forward and concise.. Thank you.

  22. PD Tech on December 16, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    So no Flyer ID needed for the Mavic Mini and Mini 2, only Operator ID. Doesn’t make any sense really, so technically you don’t have to complete the silly multiple choice ‘training’ quiz, as that’s to gain a Flyer ID, just have to read the owners manual! Or am I missing something?? πŸ˜―πŸ€”πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜

  23. Alva Fletcher on December 16, 2021 at 12:30 pm

    Really appreciate this! Thanks for taking the time to make such helpful and informative video

  24. Fatih Bayraktaroglu on December 16, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    I watched the video and get the test and pass πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ thank you 30/40 but I got my flyer id even doesnt have drone πŸ˜…

  25. Gadgetdad on December 16, 2021 at 12:34 pm

    Thanks for an awesome informative video. πŸ˜‰

  26. danjor_drone itsme on December 16, 2021 at 12:37 pm

    Question need a bit help with
    If 2 adults in same house want to share fly a dji mini 2 would both need to register and get there own id number.If so can you put both id numbers on mini 2

  27. Daniel Cole on December 16, 2021 at 12:37 pm

    Thanks for the clear advice and information.

  28. PBphotos on December 16, 2021 at 12:39 pm

    A good reference video for drone newbies, nicely done. The CAA should link this clip to the gov website, to simplify the regs πŸ‘.

  29. skyzx on December 16, 2021 at 12:39 pm

    Thanks for this getting my mini 2 soon

  30. Christian Brandt on December 16, 2021 at 12:44 pm

    First negative Brexit outcome I have seen πŸ˜‚ EU everything under 250g does not need to get registered more do you need to get tested or pay

  31. HomeWalk 3D 360 Virtual Tours on December 16, 2021 at 12:46 pm

    I’m a virtual tour and property photographer and thinking of getting one, so if I had a dji mini 2 all I’d need currently would be to take the free multiple choice questions, pay Β£9 registration and get myself some drone liability insurance? I’m still bemused if this applies to commercial as it seems too easy

  32. Caravantastic on December 16, 2021 at 12:50 pm

    Very useful thank you πŸ‘

  33. Tony Hazell on December 16, 2021 at 12:52 pm

    Great video as usual, I had to do the same over here in Ireland, multiple choice and watch a 10-15 minute video, we can display our flyer number in a QR code so I’m making mine on the vinyl cutter, I’m registered for open category A1 and A3 over here,

  34. DAVE HODGKISS on December 16, 2021 at 12:55 pm

    Just found you on YouTube this video was very instructive i carn"t wait to check out more of your videos i have subscribed to your channel
    I film mostly wildlife but last year ventured into useing Drones to give a different perspective to my filming you can get some great video at the nature reserves that i go to.
    i have the Mavic Mini , the mini 2 & Mavic Air 2 I have so far filmed at two of my local reserves if you like check them out on my YouTube channel David Hodgkiss I would appreciate your comments ( only a small channel with so far only 44 subscribers) looking forward to seeing more on your channel so have also hit the bell for more notifications Keep safe regards Dave

  35. Day Tripper on December 16, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    Very helpful. I think it’s needed as you know the Mini 2 can fly at 35 mph and some nutter somewhere could do serious damage

  36. Dr Debrun on December 16, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    Great explanation πŸ‘Œ thanks

  37. Bruce Charlton on December 16, 2021 at 12:58 pm

    I have mixed feelings about this new drone laws but thanks for all the info. I better get both IDs to continue enjoying my Mini 2

  38. Sam Hoey on December 16, 2021 at 12:58 pm

    ugh thats annoying, i though tthe whole point of it being under 250g was we didn’t need to pay drone license for it… oh well. Great helpful video, thanks
