Why will they be useless? YES, I have read everything I can, but that doesn't mean I understand what I read... if I am flying out at sea, photographing boats that are under my control or outside the 'safety radius' why will it be useless? I think my drone will still be as good as it is now - mind you by then, I don't think I will need the file sizes because my publications will no longer be in print by then I expect and will be on screen reading only. My main requirement is compact size for carrying on the motorbike, along with my stills camera, whichever one it is. I looked at the MA2, but it was just too big and heavy compared to the Mavic Air... and a good bit more expensive for a learner who didn't know what to expect or whether it would be a lasting dally!The way I’ve taken it is any drone currently on the market will be pretty much useless by 2022, as they will be legacy products.
Ive currently got the Ma2, but I have a pro 2 arriving today to try, as most of my work is lower light and I’m hoping The pro will hold up a bit better in the shadows.
I will have to take the A2 COC course regardless if I keep the MA2 or pro 2, so it’s irrelevant for me. I could wait to see what c2 drones are released soon, but I’d rather just use what I can now. In 2 years the Ma2 and pro 2 will be very old tech anyway and I’d have likely switched to something newer regardless of new laws.
