DJI Matrice 210 series drone

On 22 March 2019 the CAA released a Skywise update regarding the DJI M210 series drone and a number of reported failures.
The manufacturer has been unable to identify a common root cause and continues to investigate whether the failures are related. The CAA has received no further similar reports.
No additional restrictions beyond those in the Air Navigation Order 2016 are in place for the use of a DJI M210.
However, the CAA reminds operators to have appropriate mitigation’s in place if flying over persons or property in accordance with the Air Navigation Order, as was the case prior to this reported issue.
The key message here is No additional restrictions beyond those in the Air Navigation Order 2016 are in place for the use of a DJI M210″, the CAA are therefore confident that the Matrice M210 series of drones are safe to fly and can therefore continue to be used without further restriction.
