I was spotted on MavicPilots and he suggested I look you guys up - so here I am. On the Cheshire / Derbyshire border.
I’m not a noob but sold up 2 years ago due to ongoing BS pointing at ‘drones’ - I hate that term with a passion it has so many ‘negative’ interpretations.
I flew an Xaircraft X650, then built and flew a DJI 550 with E300 power system (Pixhawk based) - I’m a tinkerer at the core, really wanted a copter that could fly an SLR but they were huge and impractical - not to mention expensive for non commercial use.
Got really brassed off by interfering busy bodies though, can’t fly that here, can’t do this, can’t do that, they’d go out of their way to do so and I don’t handle politics or being PC well especially when I’m breaking no rules - one of my many weaknesses … so I sold up … but I’m into exploring new places, I travel a lot and the portability of the Mavic 2 Pro appealed - that and how quiet and small it was, technology has moved so far in such a short time.
So I’m giving the ‘hobby’ another go, perhaps the more discreet Mavic will allow me to mind my own business. Time will tell I guess.
