New Flyer from Essex


I’m Rob. I’m a photographer based in Harlow, Essex.

At a wedding I was shooting recently, a guest (with permission), was flying a Mini 2. I got talking with him about it and have since become a bit obsessed with the idea of having a drone to use at weddings and for general photo/ video use.

Jump forward a few weeks and I have now on order a DJI Mini 3 Pro (due to arrive this afternoon!).

This forum has already been very helpful with information and advice to get me to this point, I’m looking forward to interacting with you a lot more in the coming weeks/ months/ years etc.

Now where’s that DPD driver?

Thanks very much :smile:

Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks very much, I’m looking forward to getting involved!

Had my first flights today. Nothing fancy, just a few tests above a local field.
I’m very impressed with the handling and stability of the Mini 3 Pro. The photos and videos are coming out very nicely too.

More practicing and refining to come, but first impressions are very good :slightly_smiling_face:
