To begin with I plan on using it mainly for photography and then eventually getting into videography as my piloting skills improve. I keep getting conflicting messages on whether to purchase ND filters. So I thought I...

    That was bloody terrifying! I'm hooked!

    First ever drone flight today with my (drunk purchase) Air 2 and it was bloody terrifying! No one said it would be! I don't even think the first time I did a solo in a fixed wing I was this worried! I walked out with confidence, did all the pre-flight checks, remembered to click record after...

    First Cinematic With My Mini

    Hello everyone, I have been a mini pilot since January, and I have really enjoyed the experience. This was my first DJI drone, and the Mini has been a great platform to learn some basic aerial cinematography on. I recently was able to get some pretty nice shots in North Carolina and Tennessee...

    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!). Few hours later, my pride in check… Got it off the ground, flew around my house, and shot some spectacularly mediocre footage...
