Newbie from Farnborough, Hampshire

I am relatively new to the site, though I have had a drone for a while now. I have a DJI mini 3 pro and find it difficult to practice due to the airport and military zones in the area.

I am hoping to go to Finland later in the year to see the northern lights and plan to take my drone to capture some pictures and videos from my outings. I know I need a remote pilot certificate (plan to register via Luxembourg) but don’t yet know if I need to register as an operator.
