After yesterday's flights my official flight distance has now passed 13.2 million feet (more than 4,000 KM) flying DJI drones (mainly Mavic's), using only DJI apps that have properly synced to the flight centre. It's amazing how quickly the miles build up over the years. This is the equivalent of flying from London, England to Moscow, Russia as the crow flies

I wish
I wonder if my flight distance will circumnavigate the globe before I pack it all in - just another 118,000,000 feet to go

Quick calculation makes it another 36 years at the rate you're going. So the odds are on your side young fella   Or if you increase your output, you increase your odds of succeeding   Bit late for me - I'd have to fly 20 hours per day

You never know with this tech, we may have drones that can fly internationally in the future - I could fly over the channel and give you a wave with my Mavic 27

Careful! If you invade my airspace my Mavic 28 may shoot you down

It's going to be quite some time -it either needs to be totally controlled (which is almost impossible without implementing some sort of draconian martial law) or a vaccine needs to be discovered or we simply learn to live with it like we do the flu and common cold.

Congratulations AJ on the 2.500 miles milestone, that really is some flying right there, and that's just on the DJI Drones, do you fly other drones AJ, like FPV, Aeroplanes/helicopters, because if so, you have more than likely racked up a helluva lot more than 2.500 miles .

Still an excellent milestone to hit.

Thanks very much.
I started out in Aug 2016 with a propel drone but that didn't last long. I've also flown other drones owned by friends and used non DJI apps like litchi plus quite a number of my flights have not uploaded successfully so this is indeed my minimum distance but at least 'official'.
