    Hello all! First major post. Admins, please remove if not allowed. Move to proper thread also if possible. Thanks! Came across this... beauty*insert sarcasm* (hardly, MAJOR FAA violations) Hopefully the FAA can find this person. Talk about illegal to the max! Not our video, not do we know this...

    Will I get in trouble for flying in Class D Airspace without Authorization in the EU

    Hello, I will be travelling to Valencia, Spain in a few weeks and I want to fly my drone there, however all the city is Class D Airspace. I heard rumors that if you don't crash your drone, or by other means cause damage or inconvenience you are fine by flying in Class D airspace without...

    Does DJI have secret contract with PayPal?

    The back story, in December I've decided it is time to buy my first drone. I am going straight to the DJI website, send the Mini 2 to the basket, fill in my card details, the card gets declined. Strange, couple more tries, nothing. After some chatting with DJI support I've been advised to try a...

    DRONE REGULATION

    I have read many posts on the internet, and even this forum of people doing pretty outrageous things with their drones. Videos abound of hacking your drone to go higher and faster. People fly over cities or invade airspace illegally, oblivious to the law. The question that continues to pervade...

    Hello FAA (or Nat'l Equalivent) or . . . Confessions Are Good For The Soul

    It really does give me humor and horror when I read and realize how many pilots out there, (in the many wonderful lands around the globe), lend themselves to self confession. Examples are varied and many of the violations. Violations either by mistake or on purpose. Violations such as "I did...

    dumbest video ever!

    I used to get into some pretty big trouble when I was younger and one day I decided to smarten up. When you get in trouble a lot you end up learning the laws really quickly. Like liability for example. Most people don’t realize how heavy duty liability laws and cases can be. Did you know if...

    Now illegal to fly drones with a camera without a licence in Thailand.

    It is now illegal to fly drones with a camera without a licence in Thailand. This has been discussed before here. Can I transport my Mavic in Thailand? This year the law has changed. You have to get a licence two months prior to using a drone with camera. Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA)...

    Illegal in Paris

    I'm heading to Paris soon and was planning on taking my Mavic; this was until I found out that it is illegal to fly here and carries a penalty of a year inprisonment and a potential £55,000 (€75,000) fine! Absolutely gutted

    DJI Goggles Finally here, but illegal!

    Is it me or are these googles totally illegal? Unless you have another visual observer with you, you can NOT legally fly without visual line of sight. Don't get me wrong I would love to try them. And for those of us with Inspires where the camera can be controlled by a second person this...

    Legality!

    Hey all, before I "list" this video I'd like to know if what I've shot is strictly legal. I flew under 400 feet the whole time. Someone told me flying close to barges is like "homeland security" illegal. Anyone have any pointers with this? Thanks! -Ross

    Wanna Be a ROGUE Pilot

    If you think getting a cool YouTube video is worth doing this . . I would hope you don't fall in with these guys. These are not balloon sightings . . . . this is seriously wrong.
