    G'day from the land Down Under

    Hi All Just got my Mavic Air, and so stoked to be able to use it when I go out and about. The biggest bummer is that I can't fly it in the 'burbs' where I live in. Will have to do it when I'm out on the countryside for full effect. Bernz from Sydney Australia

    Hi from Herefordshire

    So after weeks and weeks of deciding if I should go with magic air OR the phantom 4? I went with the magic air (purely on price) as I have never flown a drone before (I believe I am a responsible adult) but want good quality arial pictures from my local cricket team. I am slightly worried about...

    Hey there! From St. Louis, MO

    Just got a Mavic Air. Opened the box, charged everything up. Took it outside, got confused. Came back in to read some instructions, web sites, forums (like this one!).
