Hello all,

I just purchased a Mavic Pro Platinum and I’m completely obsessed with it! I’ve been researching for months and finally made the leap into this awesome world.

I work in the events industry and own a technical production company in Sydney.

Looking forward to exploring this forum and reading newsletters.

Would love to hear from any other enthusiasts south of Sydney (Mittagong is in the Southern Highlands on the way to Canberra).

Cheers,
NEWTS

Adelaide, South Australia, the great southern land
it’s the first one I’ve ever owned and I’m really happy with it. It still terrifies me though!

They are extremely stable, and practically fly themselves, so just take small steps, and understand how they work, all the settings etc.
There are so many great first flight and learner vids on youtube, just search MPP first flight etc and go from there.
Big open flat area, ovals and parks are good to start in.
CASA OpenSky app for airspace info, but out your way you have loads of places to fly no doubt.
