Ordered one on Friday night late and it appears to be on the way from DE although according to Banggood it was shipping CZ. Looking at the DHL AWB it will ship into Ireland DHL will hand off to An Post for last mile delivery, which seems odd.

Anyway, can someone recommend the largest size table the controller and the cheapest as it will be used only with the drone so cheap and cheerful please. I've a spare Iphone 7 alright but I fancy something a little bigger.

There is a deal over on Hot UK Deals today for Pinnacle Studio 24 Ultimate | Advanced Video Editing Software - 73p @ Humble Bundle.
Says regular price is 129 USD. Might be of use for those looking at video editing for drone footage.

Question for those more familiar with drones. I'm a newbie and just got a DJI Mavic Mini and already thinking of upgrading. And I registered with IAA. I note that you are supposed to keep drones within visual line of sight, unless you carry a license for a "Specific Category" to go beyond that. There are various courses available on same to get same which seemed more aimed that commercial users rather than hobbyists and are rather expensive to complete (more than cost of drone). Anyone venture down that path and find an relatively inexpensive way of getting appropriate license?

Nope and for anyone taking the test, not that it's difficult or anything but almost all of the answers are in the blue box to the right of the questions. Took a number of questions to cop it..

Drone arrived, very impressed with it although only taken two short flights. Managed to get the Amazon fire to work with the controller which is a nice cheap screen for €50. Small bit of work to get Google Play store up and running to download the FIMI App but that was it.
