I was wondering if someone had the chance to fly a DJI mavic mini/2 in Iceland?

Im asking because it is small and im not so familiar with drones, all I read is that it can fly up to 13/16 m/s winds but of course nothing can beat experienced answer. Thank you

The drone regulations for Iceland can be found here and here (full PDF); they include an FAQ which suggests recreational use is permitted - I have quoted a few of the points below, but I recommend you check their site for full details:

Do I need formal training and/or licence to fly a drone?
There is no requirement for special training/licence to fly drones under 25 kg, provided they are used for recreational purposes.
...
Is it mandatory to register the drone?
Recreational flights: No need to register.
...
Is insurance for drones mandatory?
...
Recreational use: Insurance is not mandatory.
...
Where are drones prohibited?

  • Over a crowd of people
  • Close to airports with scheduled traffic
  • Close to private houses and public buildings
  • Above 120 meters
  • Beyond visual line of sight of the pilot (BVLOS)

...
Can I fly over National Parks?
For flying over National Parks you need to apply for a permit...

As to the safe wind speed for operating a DJI aircraft, you should check the specifications of your drone on the DJI website; look for the "Max Wind Speed Resistance" number on the "Specs" page (e.g. DJI Mini 2.)
