I never paid much attention to drones. Expensive toys for people with much money.
Then when the UK introduced registration, I did a little research on what was available.
I saw some amazing professional youtube footage shot with a Mavic Mini.
Looked at prices for the Mini, and weighed up whether a little Tello would suffice.
The Tello is limited, and the video prone to being jerky. Then took another l at the Mini videos,
and that was the decision made. I had to get a Mavic Mini.
So far, I've only made one flight, in my back yard, at altitude 3 feet, to check it all works.
It is pretty quiet.
I need to get to grips with all the controls and settings, and practice driving it.
I think for me, it is all about creative photography, rather than flying.
The drone is just a tool to put the camera in place.
I look forward to having fun, and sharing my results.

Welcome to the forum Ray.

Warning, you may get so addicted to flying your Mavic mini that you'll open your wallet next year to more expensive models. Start saving up. Just sayin. :p

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I'm a Mavic Mini foreigner, but I'll poke around on the Phantom forum too. Wouldn't want to miss anything. Being a member here, I can open all your pictures.
