I am currently in a drug rehab facility and I am also a Mavic mini owner Due to rules and regulations I am not allowed to have or fly it in the facility area Man I sure do miss that thing I had so much fun with it but I look at it this way I will be able to fly again soon I will also use it as a tool to keep me sober.So thank you DJI For the Mavic mini because it may just save my life and I mean that

Congratulations on your road to sobriety. If you have access to a computer maybe you can take advantage of the dji flight simulator. If not, the google play store has some good ones for android phone. I don't know what Apple has to offer.

I hope you the best also and hope you checked yourself in and not put in by the court. You have to be the one that wants it. I know, had a son I put in 3 different times to keep him from pulling time but he never changed.
Just played the system. He did finally want to get straight himself and got straight.And is doing very well now but you got to want it.
Good luck to you and will have you in my prayers. Thumbswayup

Congratulations for taking the road towards sobriety. Thing like flying the drone and the side activities like photography and video editing are great to keep you away from any type of drugs.

Hang in there, Brother. I've been clean and sober for over 35 years now. And as mentioned above, one day at a time.

So glad that you found drone piloting to be fulfilling. It is one heck of a hobby and even has potential as a career for some.

Be at Peace.

Drones won't keep you clean but meetings could. Congratulations on taking the first step. 33 years clean here and still going to meetings and working steps. Following the rules in treatment is not easy but it is good practice. One day at a time.
