re: Anyone here own DJI drones?
One thing to be aware of now that you are a drone owner. In general terms, people don’t like drones flying around them. It will really freak people in a neighborhood out of your drone is flying low and around them if they can’t see who is flying it. When I fly around my neighborhood, I do so in my front driveway so that everyone can see that I am not trying to be shady. I also do not follow people and do not fly low over back yards.

I say all that to say, just be mindful of people’s privacy. They will call the police if you are not careful.

I understand that.

For sure. Fwiw, if I did piss someone off I would get a phone call from my father (Sheriff). Especially now since I sent him a picture of my purchase

Most people know me in my immediate neighborhood, but I will def go high when actually flying.

re: Anyone here own DJI drones?
Alright just got to fly the mini for the first time. I only got a few minutes because it is pretty windy today, but very happy from those few minutes. I got up about 30 ft and could see an amazing distance away from my back yard looking into a field. I saw the wind warning before I had a chance to take a picture. I will try to go back out in a bit and get one. Still nervous as hell not wanting to wreck it.

Main problem with mini is lack of obstacle avoidance. You will crash it

I bet I will, I was nervous as hell when the wind warning came up. Went back out and got a few pictures. I did buy the dji care (1 yr), $39 for up to two replacements. Sucks its windy today 16-20 mph winds

I always ignore the wind warnings.

Use your judgement. Anything under 20 mph is manageable, just dont take it too high

Only good if you are able to recover the drone. Lose it in water or where you cannot recover it and you are SIL. I have DJI care and coverage with State Farm. Had to use SF when I had one go submarine on me last year.

You will soon be brave enough to fly it out of line of sight. After you do that a couple times, you will start making serious flights and that is when it will get fun!
