Well, this is absolutely ridiculous. I cannot find an app that works from the play store to connect my phone. It says to use DJI GO but that doesn't list the Mavic Mini, online it mentions DJI FLY APP, which doesn't appear to be in Play store. FFS.  Crash

My drone weighs 249g and has a camera. I would suggest it is not classed as a toy, so according to this I have to register an operator ID but not a flyer ID

https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/registration-requirements-for-drones

Then I read this, which suggests an Operator ID is for the person who owns the drone, and flyer ID is for the person who flys it.

https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/individual

I don't get it?  Huh? Firstly, the class/weight suggests I don't need a flyer ID.

I'm just going to get an Operator ID.   Crash

My colleague has had issues connecting my drone to his samsung. Have you an ipad or iphone to connect it to?

I bought a dji phantom pro must be 6/7 years ago now. Then a mavic mini 3 years ago.

The phantom is a big boy with a 2 mile range and can handle high wind. The mavic struggles compares to that but its so tiny its fantastic and I get the most use out of that.

One thing I haven't set up yet is the facial recognition where it will follow you wherever you walk/run/ cycle etc.

Overall the technology is brilliant, anti-crash features, automatic fly back when battery low etc and the picture quality is insane- enjoy it!
