Just about to take delivery of my first drone. Have ordered a DJI Mavic 2 Pro after spending a bit of time figuring out what I wanted from a drone.
Originally was planning on a Mavic Air 2, mainly for the price, until I found out annoyingly it’s not compatible with the FPV goggles which is definitely something I wanted to get involved with. So have stumped up the extra cash for the Mavic 2 Pro. Really hope I enjoy this hobby! I’m sure I’ll love it.
Used to fly R/C planes for a short while so have some flying experience and so hoping I should figure out flying a drone fairly straight forward!
Cheers all, will post up my first bit of footage when I get filming something!
ps. can anyone recommend any editing software? Free or cheap ideally! To work on a Mac.
Hi, welcome to GADC this is a fantastic place for loads of useful information and help, the members are so helpful and friendly, you will love your mavic 2 pro I upgraded to one last weekend and it’s truly amazing. Enjoy the site and have fun.
Cheers guys, appreciate the response! Will definitely check out Drone Scene website, it’d be good to find some places to have a practice without anyone giving me any hassle, which I hear stories about. Nice one!
Cheers! Yeah, a bit built up here. I was vaguely hoping to do a bit of a fly-through down the canal but I suppose it’s probably a bit too built up to be allowed. Maybe further out of town between Kirkstall and Rodley (just before it starts getting a bit urbanised).
Hi! Welcome to the amazing drone community! You made a great choice with the M2P and I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun. Just bear in mind that when using the goggles, you need to fly with an observer who can scan the air and groundspace around you. But it’s definitely something I’m keen to explore too so I’d be interested in your feedback of use.
On the point of compatibility, I thought they were compatible with all DJI aircraft via HDMI, but wireless was limited to craft like the Mavic Pro?
You might be right although I was looking at the DJI goggles and after scouring the web, from what I could tell they’re not compatible with the Air 2 at the moment. However as you say, maybe HDMI? I don’t know. It was enough of an excuse to go for the fancier Pro model anyway
Welcome to the group, i’m very close to you
Kirkstall abbey would have to be planned for early doors, which me and @mickydd keep trying to plan, i go up to tempsie and was at the chevin other week
Ahh just up the road! My girlfriend is in Beeston. Yeah, Kirkstall Abbey would be great! In the meantime I need to find somewhere local, maybe Gotts Park or Armley Park, to have a bit of practice - just basic flying really. May pop there tonight.
