Hi all, new to the drone scene. Really excited to get started on some aerial photography and video.
One question that is still bothering me over the new rules?
I have done the CAA registration for flying licence and operators, but if I bought a dji mavic 2 pro would I still be able to fly it in 2023 to take pictures/videos but only in open spaces?
It’s slightly confusing as I do want to take photos of architecture as well as landscapes/top down and possibly sport/action video.
Welcome to a great and informative drone site
Short answer is that nobody has any definite idea what is going to happen. So grab a drone now- whether it is a Mini 2 for accessibility or an N2 Pro for great picture quality and fly the arse off it. If you don’t get one now and worry about forthcoming legislation you will miss out on a load of fun and learning.
As @Jhdee says, check out flying under article 16 (go to the FPVUK or BMFA websites) or take advantage of the GADC / UAVHub A2 course discount.
Welcome to the group, enjoy your stay
