Jani Ahonen's mybest Summary

Getting started with drone photography in 2021 is easier than ever, especially if you go with a drone that weighs less than 250 grams, such as DJI Mini 2. 

However, before buying your first drone, make sure you check your local laws and requirements regarding flying a drone since those vary depending on the country you live in. The last thing you want to happen to you is to buy a new drone that you can't even fly anywhere near you live.
