Newbie in Ipswich looking for a community

I just got a DJI mini 2 - really excited about it too! I’m still a little lost finding a designated area to fly especially since there’s really little information about this to find (everywhere looks okay). Is there a general rule of thumb for where flying? Either way, I am happy to travel the UK to areas where I can, which is the reason why I got a drone in the first place. Won’t mind a meet up with any other enthusiast. Currently in Ipswich living by the waterfront.

Thanks so much. Just added me to the map too.

Hi from Wigan @Efe :wave:t2:

Avoid some of the flight-restricted airspace :slight_smile:

Have a look around Drone Scene that @OzoneVibe linked to and experiment with the different map layers as it’s a great resource for viewing all the different airspace restrictions in one place.

Thanks @PingSpike. Just to double check, I didn’t have to take the test or get a flyer’s ID to use the DJI mini 2 since it is under 250g, yes?

Welcome @Efe to GADC :grinning:

Welcome to the forum. You need an operator ID because it’s under 250gm, not a toy and has a camera. Worth getting the flyer ID as well if you’re new to drones.

Done and Done.
