    Not one of the lucky Mavic owners yet, but mine is already ordered since Sept.28th at a German DJI distributor and will hopefully arrive this month.
    I am flying copters with FPV goggles since end of 2008, beginning with a professional Microdrones MD4-200, followed by various others such as Phantom 2, a Mariner II / SplashDrone, Inductrix, Inductrix 200, FPV-Ladybird.
    Before flying FPV I was flying rc helicopters for about 40 years. I even was flying FPV with one of the helicopters for some years, based on DJI Wookong H.

    Now I stay tuned for the new possibilities Mavic is promising, e.g. due to its form factor. I also intend to fly it via FPV, either by using the Litschi app with cardboard goggles or maybe the DJI goggles when available.

    Regards, Gerd

    Hi Gerd,

    I will be visiting Deutschland in May and want to bring my drone to film some aerial footage of castles like Heidelberg schloss, etc.

    Do u know if I need special permission to do that?

    I know that some castles have forbidden drone flying, such as Schloss Neuschwanstein. I am not aware of Heidelberg but I guess there it is similar because of high visitor frequentartion and safety. You will have to ask them directly, e.g. at the ticket counter.
