    i will equip the camera with 2 raspberry Pi A+ with 2 Pi-cameras fur 3D-pictures and videos.
    I hope, the gimbal will work fine with the additional 7 grams...
    have you taken a look inside the drone?

    Because you are living in Centurion, you are close to the Rhino&Lion and Lion park.
    Because those are not national parks, it should be allowed to fly a drone there? Any restrictions in the both parks?

    I'll be headed to South Africa on Monday to Cape Town does anyone there know of any restrictions as far as flying? Also hiking the Otter Trail while we are there should be some pretty good video.

    Hi All,

    Got my Mavic last week and it has been amazing, live in Cape Town so looking forward to filming some amazing scenery! Have had my Phantom 3 Pro for about 6 months.

    As far as I know you are not allowed to fly within 10km of any airfield or airport, no higher than 120m and have to maintain visual of your drone at all times.
