I was using a DJI Mavic Pro, 2.7k edited in Premier or just Instagram.

So it’s you and Chris with the Mavics and me with my humble Spark.


The church shot is particularly excellent…


Any more drone-owners on the forum?

  • Pro-level e.g. DJI Inspire 2
  • Enthusiast-level e.g. DJI Mavic Pro / Phantom
  • Hobbyist-level e.g. Parrot Bebop
  • No, but planning to buy one
  • No, waiting for next generation
  • No, not interested

Maybe a meetup in Southwark (or another borough that allows drone flights) for some filming and a coffee/pint?

  • I’m up for a drone outing
  • I prefer to drone alone
  • Other (please comment)

Will bring my Spark and DJI goggles so you can have a go with the goggles.


Hi Mike firstly I love the images😊. I’m really surprised because I thought you needs a special licence to fly a drone in London!


Thanks @PhilipPetrou no that’s a myth thankfully, just need to follow the rules and be respectful.


Yes, luckily we have a host of apps to assist us with where we can and can’t fly. The drones Mike and Chris have a very costly and not the sort of thing you want to lose by flying illegally. When I fly I file a flight plan with the CAA so there can be no confusion as to where I am and what I am doing. The CAA also provides a very good Drone Code to help responsible drone users.


Heading up to One Tree Hill to capture the sunset with my drone at 8:30pm this eve if you fancy joining, @Mike_Hemmings / @h4rrydog ? (Sorry for short notice!)

No rain forecast for 9:


I have the family visiting but with this thunder?! You’re brave! Good luck.


Could get some cracking footage!


Could add a new dimension to the phrase “drone strike”.


Would be nice to get some aerial shots of St Augustines


Great cloud for a sunset. Share some pics when you can!


Be careful.


Here’s a little vid from tonight:

Unfortunately it wasn’t a hugely impressive sunset after all - just very hazy.
