Hi all - just popping in to say hi. I've just had my Zoom delivered so will give it a whirl and upload some footage over the next week or so. I'm a filmmaker creating pieces for the BBC, C4, music videos, Universities and more so this will be a lovely addition for storytelling (and just some gorgeous UK countryside shots). I've got a few older examples of my work on www.devillefilm.com - but I'll post some pieces as and when I get the chance.

Anyway - hello to everyone!

Congrats. Please tell us your honest opinions about the drone, pros, cons etc. Personal views, not a copy of all the other reviews around.
Enjoy flying.

Hi,

I ordered mine from Jessops - probably on the 2nd September and arrived for delivery yesterday. They were out of stock too so it was 7 or 8 days for re-supply. Not sure if they were ordering direct from China or another UK stockist but I imagine it was part of a consignment from DJI.

I know those who ordered direct from DJI are having a bit of a delay in product leaving China but I'm sure you'll get it in the next few days!

Yeah, I'm interested in low flying shots through the woods etc as well as the traditional. Look to see how to twist convention with the shots etc. I find this website is fantastic for planning - http://www.noflydrones.co.uk

I think you'll be fine with certain National Trust areas provided you're not on the property or getting too close. Obviously best to avoid them all together, but some parks and castles might be doable from a distance - Corfe Castle in Dorset for example.

Make sure it's all updated (firmware etc) and enjoy it. Where about are you in the UK?

Yep - just need to run the firmware for the drone as it failed to upload last time. I'm in Hampshire and have checked out the noflydrone site which seems great for no go areas etc. Plenty of countryside and areas (Dorset etc) to have a play in.

Good for you - Nats drone assist is a great tool to use. Try updating the FW using Assistant 2 on a Mac/PC.

Oh excellent - I'll use that. I did drop NATS a line re filming in an area that was listed as having possible air traffic (blue not red) so wanted to know who to contact locally to inform them of filming. Looking at the app it seems provided you're cautious etc then this shouldn't be an issue but as a professional filmmaker anyway I'm always double checking!

The UK CAA are generally the best people to talk with regarding permissions. Be sure to post some stills/footage - look forward to it!
