    Mavic Pro 1 Returning User

    I haven't been flying for over a year, been maintaining my batteries so they don't die, but I'm just following some news about new Remote ID regulations. Obviously my Mavic Pro 1 won't be in compliance, are there ways to retrofit it with the new technology, or am I left with a illegal drone.

    "Operating" a drone in a space versus just "flying over" a space

    I see a lot of regulations that prohibit "taking off, landing, and operating a UAV in X space." However, they do allow UAVs to fly over that space. (And also, the FAA allows UAVs to fly over any non-FAA-regulated space) What is the difference between "operating" a UAV and simply "flying over" a...
