New Pilot Experience - 5th of December


On Thursday night, 6-8PM, DJI store hosted their nineteenth New Pilot Experience across all stores. We had another solid turnout this week with plenty of first time drone owners and future drone owners.

This Free Drone workshop was a two hour course taking pilots, whom have varying levels of experience, through the basics of each drone to more intermediate skills. 
Some of the topics that were covered included pre/post flight checklists, photography/videography settings and CASA laws and regulations.

Furthermore, the workshop also had many questions asked and answered, boosting everyone's confidence when using the drone. We encourage people to ask as many questions as possible. Each week, we try and add those questions into the course to ensure that it is fresh and relevant! We highly recommend you to sign-up if you haven't already as it is definitely worth it! Click here to sign up!

Learning point — Flying without a phone

The Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom is recommended to be flown whilst connect to a smartphone and DJI Go 4. However, there are times where we might not have a phone available or you want to quickly get that shot. The Drone CAN be flown without being attached to a phone and the app. However, DJI limited the drone to a height of 30m, range of 50m. You can still take photos and videos with the rear photo and video buttons, however you will not see your framing, focus or exposure.
