I live on the east coast of New South Wales, Australia, and have just purchased a white Mavic Air. From a quick scope around the DJI Forums, I'm yet to find a thread exclusively for Australian Mavic Air pilots - somewhere we can discuss stuff which is exclusive to our big brown land. What I'm hoping this thread becomes is a point where anyone flying a Mavic Air in Australian skies can come to ask questions about regulations, get tips and tricks on cinematography, how to fly the aircraft and share links to their videos. Let the discussion begin!

Umm, how about the Australia Regional forum here: https://forum.dji.com/forum.php? ... peid&typeid=398

"I'm yet to find a thread exclusively for Australian Mavic Air pilots"

That 'Regional' forum is for pilots of all DJI aircraft. I was kinda hoping to have a little corner where only Mavic Air pilots could chat just about that one model.

Yeah, I noted that. But you also said that you thought that a forum "where anyone flying a Mavic Air in Australian skies can come to ask questions about regulations, get tips and tricks on cinematography, how to fly the aircraft and share links to their videos."
All of those things you thought it would be good to discuss - and I don't disagree with you - are mostly specific to Australia, and not specific to the model. If you look at the threads on the Regional forum you'll see that that's exactly what's discussed too.
I suppose I just personally don't see the benefit of having such a thread here. But whatever - others may feel differently.

Haha. Nah, it's an open forum and we have the freedom to do what we want (within the rules). It's just a question here of where would a relevant discussion be logically placed for people to find it.

Yes, that may be right, but logical thinking people don't join a Holden owners forum to discuss their VE Series SV6 Commodore with people who drive an Astra, or a Colorado, or a Malibu. Logical thinking people don't join a Ford owners forum to discuss their BA Series XR6 Turbo with people who drive Ranger utes, or the new Mustang coupé, or Focus RS hatchbacks. You might do that, considering all I have to go off when assessing what kind of person you are is a few lame and utterly unnecessary comments. As for everything else, I don't know you from a bar of soap, but then again nor do you know anything about what kind of person I  am...

Right in a thread titled 'Mavic Air Pilots - Australia', or at least I was hoping it would. Then again, there's one in every crowd...

Hmm, what a complete waste of a post. Logical people wanting to discuss regulations for flying in Australia would be better served going to the Australian forum (or looking on the CASA site), not looking under forums for the model of craft they fly. The rules for flying in Australia are no different between a Mavic Air, Mavic Pro, Phantom, etc. And people wanting to discuss tips on taking videos or flying would be better off spending time in the main forum, which is perfectly adequate for that. But whatever - you've degraded this thread to something personal because I offered a view, but I wish you well regardless.
