    Fantastic, finally someone who actually knows what is going on and what he is talking about. I am waiting for my first drone, a DJI Mavic Mini but now wondering if it will be obsolete by 2022. Already I can’t find (yet) anywhere I can fly it legally local to me and was considering cancelling the order with DJI. The current rules under the ANO seem to be crazy for a 249 gram drone so I would ask you if the Mavic Mini has a future under next years EU rules/categories, how long will that last and would DJI be able to update the firmware to allow the Mavic Mini to fly in a category that allows it to get closer to people and buildings? Finally, should I go ahead and register the Mavic Mini even though I currently don’t have to do so, so that I can fly it next year in the EU assuming we haven’t closed the borders. Or will we just have to retire it to the waste recycling bin and buy a new one?

    I have always been fascinated by the drones and watching many drone videos and footage, finally decided to get one and just received a Mavic Mini, but seriously I am still struggling to know where can I take it for practicing and training myself how to fly it in UK with all these laws, can’t try it in my back garden as I am near properties and ppl, not in public parks or above roads or traffic or near National Trust and need farmers permission to take off and land from their lands, etc
    I was hoping that someone could give any advice on where should I start

    Hi Sean, you are a good narrator with a good voice and magnificent pronunciation though both those arms in the air while you are talking is not necessary and takes away from your words. ‘Pointing’ finger is not done neither. Else, you have good topics, thank you for the information. Big Like!

    This is bullshit. I do this to relax not stress out. Its totalitarian and clearly to destroy the hobby.

    3:05 or in other words track the operator who has recorded a police officer who has just killed a protestor in a protest.

    The far as I can see this is another way to milk honest taxpayers if some wants to do something stupid with his expensive toy all that registration etc. will not stop him. Like if some wants to do something stupid with car you can buy a car with out driving license etc and can do 100miles on streets. They want that toys to become as you driving a car. Holding Test, registration, insurance, all that for money.
    Thanks for the video and update.
