    I am reasonably sure that it was a thread on here some time ago, probaby 1-2 years ago, but couldnt find it on a search, that it was impossible to block drones over prisons etc as the blocking technology also affected other more important aspects of life..
    Not true. Or at least not anymore.

      I dont dispute that as technology doesnt stand still as what can be done now couldnt be last week. So why can they not stop drones dropping drugs etc over prison walls?

      They can. If the prisons spend the money to do so

      But what if I can provide better weather forecast / information / snow reports via the drone?
      Sorry i am very anti drone, weirdly i was going to start a thread about what would you do if a drone landed/crashed in your garden, smash it up or try and return it.


      Because i personally would trash it,(sorry) i like my privacy and safety for my kids.

      So, as I've said, I'm thinking about getting my first camera drone. It will be to take video footage and photos here in Sussex, and on holidays (skiing is something I really fancy using it with).

      My requirements are:

      1. Video capability - min HD, ideally 4k
      2. Photos capability
      3. Portable
      4. Easy to fly
      5. Follow me mode
      6. Ideally for under or close to 1k



      From the research I've performed, the ones that have my interest are:

      • DJI Mavic Pro - c1100 for bundle with extra batteries etc
      • DJI Spark - c600 with extras
      • DJI Phantom 3 Standard - c400


      So, does anyone on here own one and can provide some guidance on which models to consider beyond this list, and which is best?

      Thanks

      P.
      Fraser has a Mavic Pro and it is an unbelievable piece of kit. Well worth the money.

      Whatever you do, DO NOT buy anything other than DJI. They're the market leaders for a reason.

      Because Amazon give them a back-hander?
      Was that the intro? I should have been in!

      I can't think of many valid reasons why a drone would crash / land in your garden. Most (at least other than the cheap ones) have a return to base option for when the battery runs low.

      DJI Phantom. The rest are kids toys
