Reading through the literature it seems that holding an A2 CofC will open up a lot more posibilities for flying in the UK (potentially over towns/cities/castles etc.)
I'm very tempted to sit the exam but was wondering if there is anywhere on the internet that would provide useful reference material to help pass the course?
Has anyone completed an A2 CofC yet?

I found a lot of helpful videos on Youtube, IanInLondon, and a few others do a walk through video.
I am waiting to take my exam through https://coptrz.com/about-us/

It was £49.00 plus VAT, I did the 4 main modules on line at my own pace, I am going through the final 5th module which a recap, i then need to do 4hrs of flying POST starting the course.
I have been flying large scale model turbine helicopters for the past 20yrs so the flying part hasnt been daunting.. and is straight forward.

But one thing to bear in mind - after 2022 all our aircraft will become legacy aircraft and can only been flown in the A3 open category wether we have done the A2CoFC or not, unless DJI do a firmware fix which enables our drones to become CE certified by having a low flight speed mode.. But on a fixed pitch machine without having larger props and a complete redesign of the 4 arms to allow for larger props I am not sure how this will be accomplished, unless they make wider chord blades..

This isn't true for the Mini/Mini2 - only for drones >250g.
You may find my infographic helpful, it can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bkdrb ... GRdwZhLw6QSSSa?dl=0

Thanks for that info, I forgot about the 250g and below category, as i only fly large models.
I can see that changing eventually.. where everything that has a camera no matter what weight will have to be registered and restricted due to privacy laws and paranoid public.
