I am Stephen and I have just purchased the DJI Mini 2. As a building surveyor my intention is to use it in my work and I have been practicing flying up and around my house in preparation for real use. I did take it on a survey yesterday, but it was too windy to fly it.
My other aim is to take footage for my website - in due course. I deal mainly with historic buildings and as part of my future work I am doing a lot of training in relation to this.
Thanks for the heads up. Yes, at present I have only recreational cover, but I have asked my business insurance broker to get quotes for commercial insurance as well. I will only be flying recreationally until then.
