Worth buying a drone?

Toying with the idea of buying a drone.
I know which one I want (DJI Mini 2) but have no experience of flying them or airial photography.

My concern is the UK law and/or any potential problems with the general public or any other unforseen arising problem.

Any experience or views would be gratefully received before spending my money.

The Civil Aviation Authority has advice:


Maybe have a quick read of that first. Smile

I bought a small one to try and couldn't master it in the living room let alone outside...🤣🤣

Maybe try one in a shop?

The people I know who have bought drones never seem to own them for very long.

The devices either get stuck high up in a tree or crash and disintegrate! 🤣

You have chosen a great drone and it suitable for most people.

The secret with a drone is to take your time, just think of it as a camera on a large tripod.

Feel free to message me for advice or come over to mine to try before you buy one
