    Travelling Within China

    Hey everyone I was wondering if anyone has experience travelling within China with their drone on domestic flights. I have family that go often and one of my cousins had a bunch of camera lenses confiscated when flying domestically. I haven't heard of any problems for people flying in...

    Another new Mavic Air Pilot joins the crew

    DJI Care Refresh country lock

    Since I'm a noob pilot in Macau, and I feel like I must get DJI Care, would it be more convenient to buy the DJI Care from China or Hong Kong. The difference is that if I buy it in China I have to ship it to China if I crash the drone, which would be cheaper, but in Hong Kong it's much easier to...

    Data security and DJI

    There are several threads about the DJI Assistant 2 software being flagged--by several different virus scanners--as infected. (That concern is largely countered with "Norton sucks!", "False positive!", "They're working on it.", and similar arguments.) But in these times, what would be the...

    UAV Regulation Macau

    Most Macanese drone pilots should know that in Macau if you don't have a special license it isn't legal to fly above 30m (98.5 ft). Is there any problem if someone flies above the limit (50m for example)? I'm a beginner with the "luck" of living in a place where drone rules are very strict...

    See the beauty of China

    On a recent trip, I saw China and fell in love with Yunnan Province. My wife and I had no idea how to get around so we took each day as it came. We ended up on some pretty long hikes and bus rides, but it all was worth it. Tell me if you know some of the locations :D I'll be editing a few...

    Are foreigners allowed to bring drones to China and to fly them? There were several reports that since June 1st, 2017 drone registration is compulsory in China. How does this new rule affect foreigners? How and where can drones be registered? Is it possible without a Chinese ID? I was not...

    Buying Mavic/Spark in China

    Dear Mavic Pilots all over the world, I'm thinking about buying my first drone when I'm going to visit a friend in China in August. I read that DJI products are cheaper in China, but I'd like to know how much and where to buy. Should I just order it online and let it be delivered to my friend...

    I am currently in Beijing and yesterday climbed about 6km in a remote location of the Great Wall of China. In the morning before heading out I download the latest firmware update. I tried to fly in 4 different locations and got NFZ as soon as GPS locked on. So was unable to fly. If I could have...

    Just got mine in Beijing

    First (real) drone. Got it after 1.5-month wait. Still have to plan a trip out of the city to try it out (Beijing has an infamous 30km radius no-fly zone over the whole city :P)
