    New Pilot -- frustrated

    So we agree that I was correct in both instances when I said the NPS doesn't allow drones. As for your "FAQ's" NPS has stated on their social media that they only give permits to fly in their boundaries in exceptional cases. Basically you probably have to be working for Discovery/National Geography.

    New Pilot -- frustrated

    I was incorrect about your destination. I thought the Monument was a park. My mistake. My statement regarding drones in Nat, Monuments, Wildlife Refuge, Most state parks is still true. A 30sec google search and you'll have your proof. "Within" means inside of. So flying a drone "inside of" any...

    Another new Austin TX pilot

    New Pilot from Austin, TX

    I'll be splitting my time between Manila and Zamboanga. I've heard horror stories from others who have made the same trip who lost expensive electronics at the airports. I don't want to lose my brand new $1K drone. Believe me I wish I could

    New Pilot from Austin, TX

    I'm fairly new to drones. Purchased my first small $20 drone on Amazon this year. Upgraded to a <$100 larger drone with camera not too long after but both drones didn't feel refined. The controls and quality left me unsatisfied. I purchased my Mavic Pro yesterday and it should arrive Monday Aug...
