Newbie from Southwark, London!

Hi everyone!

Santa’s been kind this year and have landed up (no pun intended!) with a Mavic Mini.

Am set up with an Operator ID and have done a few flights outside of London - am I right in thinking it’s okay to fly the Mavic Mini in Southwark as long as <120m from the ground?

Thanks for your help in advance - looking forward to sharing and hopefully contributing to the forums once a little more experienced :slight_smile:


Hi @Rasssd and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

Santa done good. Southwark (like a lot of london) isn’t as simple to fly in as other parts of the country, check out DroneScene for what restrictions there are
