I was considering buying a DJI Mini 2 but with new European regulations it will require proper CE category labels on the drones.
There is a "die out" period till 2023 and then "old" drones will be Class 3 A3 with more flying limitations.
I own a marvelous DJI Mavic Air and is now a Class 1 A1 (Europe)... till 2023?
DJI Mini 2 is now a Class 0 A1 drone... till 2023?

Will DJI provide a proper label and/or firmware upgrade to comply to European regulations?
For which drones: mini, mavic(s), air, air 2, mini 2, ...

Dear Ivybec,

Thank you for contacting DJI.

The EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) has not yet finalized the publication of certain standards regarding these regulations.

We are confident that many existing DJI products will be able to obtain CE marking and as such continue to be used also after the transition years. For those products that will not be able to obtain the new CE marking, the transition period provides a gradual phase out – and they will even still be allowed to be used in category C4 after 2022.

As this matter is ongoing, please understand that once the standards have been finalized we will have a better understanding for the usage of your products in the future.

Thanks for choosing DJI and have a nice day!
Thank you for choosing DJI products.

Best regards,

Christian

At the moment the rules appear to not allow retrospective classification, so only new drones sold will get the label once that comes into effect.

I have the Mavic 2 Pro,  so I won't be upgrading until there is something certified for the same reason.  I doubt there will be much enforcement of it TBH.

Here in Belgium, the new European regulations will be great.
Up till now I was not allowed to fly above 10 m and only on private property.
So far I was never stopped from flying at the beach, dunes, fields, ...

A Mavic Air can be flown (with pilot licence) until 2023 in A1 airspace. After that it is only A3 if I remember correctly!

Oh that's true, I am mistaken. It is with training indeed.
Not sure what I was thinking.
It is the reason why I sold my MP.
