In light of the PO's initial comment regarding a dedicated "Drone Forum" could the Administrators/Moderators see their way clear to opening such a forum and leaving the Modelling Forum to those who want to discuss actual modelling as these are two quite different interests.

I rang Maplins in Dublin and the young lad on the phone said "VGA to Mavic Pro? I don't think we have those but you can check our website..."

Tried the Limerick branch and the sales assistant said they have 69 pre-orders in for it

Dying to get one before my trip to Cape Town in March!

Was your order shipped from USA.
Were you charged for Custom Duties/VAT?

I ordered mine the start of January and got it about 3 weeks later; did it online- was post from NL if I'm not mistaken ( as this is the extension of the email I was told to contact about one of the batteries that is malfunctioning )

If anyone is planning to buy one, I advise the Combo; I saw 2 batteries fully charge give me a 30min session and I'm guessing the strong winds were the main cause of it;

I've read a lot of stories of people with the 1 battery alone having to return due to malfunctioning;

There's a few extra props and the chargers too; save money for a decent size and good cat mini-SD card;

I opened my bag and used it once; the drone is so portable that it'll be travelling on my backpack/camelback anymore rather than on its leather case; it's a nice touch to add value, but I won't use it

Be sure to download "UAV Forecast" on apple store.

It can tell you the windspeed etc- and gives you a rating of how good it is out to fly.

Tomorrow actually gets the thumbs up with low winds and no rain midday.

Bringing my drone with me for a lunchtime flight in the park

Yes, no need to register it at all.
