    What are the current rules on using follow me modes and the ‘must have vlos’, obviously if you’re using a follow/tracking mode you aren’t maintaining vlos – new Mini 3 has tracking modes and is under 249gr – thanks

    if drone is 249g or less your ok. Do not fly your drone in a no-fly area, check before flight.

    Hi, good video. So as far as it stands at the moment, If I was to do the A2 COFC Because my drone is over the 250g but is under 2kg so I would be in the A3 and once passed the test that would put me in the A2 class which means I can fly 50m instead of 150m that’s all good. So what happens in 2023 as I have heard from others that it is changing aging and the slightly heavy ones will drop back to the A3 150m. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    I will be traveling to Scotland for vacation in a couple months and want to bring my DJI Mavic to fly recreationally. Do I need to apply for a UK drone registration or is my US certificate all I need?
    Anyone know?
    Thank you,
