Whats Next - March My Photography
Looking forward to these and making it a busy end to the Month of March
Blog 62 - Changes to the Air Navigation (Amendment) Order 2019 come into force on 13/03/19.
Primarily this extends the airfield restrictions. Please refer to CAP1763 which provides full guidance
In simple terms there are Flight Restriction Zones (FRZ) will change and new Runway Protection Zones (RPZ) will be introduced.
Runway Protection Zone will be from the end of the runway out to 5 kilometres and will be 1 kilometre wide and extend from each runway threshold into the approach to that runway.
Restriction Zones be either 2 nautical miles or 2.5 nautical miles radius depending on runway length.
The flight restriction zone is active at all times and applies to all small unmanned aircraft of any mass (even very small toys). To fly drones in the FRZ you will need permission from the Airport and or the ATC.
A map detailing the flight restriction zones at each protected aerodrome in the UK can be found at www.dronesafe.uk
Blog 61 - DJI Mavic 2 Pro has landed, and have a few hrs of flight only but the quality difference in the camera and drone itself is remarkably better.
For the Mavic 2 Pro, DJI partnered with high-end camera-maker Hasselblad to build a camera with a one-inch sensor. That’s four times larger than the image sensor on the 1st model and the zoom version.
New front, rear, top and bottom sensors giving the Mavic omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, it has a larger battery giving you a maximum flight time around 31 minuets and a top speed of over 45mph
The Pro can also shoot 10-bit 4K Dlog-M at 100Mbps. That’s basically like shooting RAW video. Footage can be filmed in 4K at 24, 25 or 30fps, 2.7K at 24, 25, 30, 48, 50 or 60fps or 1080p at up to 120fps (which plays back in a smooth slow motion), with a choice of MP4 and MOV formats and H.264 and H.265 encoding.
It’s quieter than the original Mavic Pro as well, sounding a little less like a swarm of angry bees.
In addition I picked the new DJI Smart Controller that will look at separately, will carry out further review of the Mavic 2 in three months once I've got a few more flying hrs out of it.
