  • ℹ️ Description

#EASA #DroneRegistration #MavicMini #Mini2
The new rules for flying drones come into effect 31 Dec 2020. The UK Civil Aviation Authority have new rules to match the new EASA rules and now you MUST register your DJI Mavic Mini and Mini 2 or risk a big fine for flying illegally. It's pretty easy and I go through exactly how to register your drone and get your Flyer ID and your Operator ID.
Note: There are now 40 questions for the Flyer ID online test and lasts 5 years

Bit of a loaded question, but what do you think of the new rules for the Mini & Mini 2? Should it stay under the radar for registration?

I feel RC cars sales will rocket next year unless they also need driving license for those too... hahaha

What I really need to know is. Can my mini fly into tier 2 from tier 3? Or will Boris make a new rule that says that it only can do so with one other drone on Diwali or similar religious event? As long as it's not Sunday and you own a ginger cat of course

so not really bothered if you can fly safely, they just want the money. hmm typical
All the best Ian

Just use a 200ft pole with a GoPro on the end. No regs - problem solved 👍😉

Hum...seems similar to paying a yearly registration fee car owner pays, regardless if you drive the car or not.

Bummer Ian! Figures they would catch up. Only a matter of time before it happens to us in the USA.

Could you do a video regarding any new do's and don'ts about the mini 2 in the UK. Flying at night, near people/buildings etc. Great informative video BTW.

Great video, cheers Ian. Just saw this info in my email inbox from CAA. As per usual with the CAA the words "Pis*up & Brewery" spring to mind!
