    Not always the drone operators who are wrong

    I try and fly by the rules and do the correct thing. In Switzerland I wanted to fly my drone about 4km from a heliport (Interlaken) so technically within the 5km zone. After telephoning the airport I was sent by email a form to complete. For some reason, the heliport wanted 24 hours notice...

    People Are Still Uninformed About Drones

    This past weekend I saw a post on Facebook from my niece's husband bragging/warning about a drone he saw flying over his house and how he got his shotgun out, took aim and the drone flew off. He went to the front yard and saw a person standing outside their vehicle with a controller. He still...

All the research I have done says that I, as a tourist in Mexico, am legally allowed to fly my mavic mini in Mexico. My question, is there any government documentation (English or Spanish) that...

    France, before I go what do I need to know?

    So the title says it all. Will our drones (Mavic 2 Pro) be able to fly there? I will be there for 2 weeks and will be traveling throughout the country. Any info on laws, regulation, etc., or links to good threads or articles on this subject? Much Thanks!

    Drone laws Morroco

    Hi, I was wondering if there is anything I can do in my situation. I failed to do my research on Drone Laws in Morroco, and on our way to Amsterdam passing through Marrakesh for a few days I have my Mavic Air with me. I genuinely did not see any signs to declare a Drone upon arriving and because...

    New Drone Rules for Canada

    Just read that drone pilots in Canada will be required to register their drone and get their license before flying as of June 1st, 2019. Basic license (must fly at least 30 meters from bystanders) is $10 and the "advanced" license is an extra $10 - each requiring you to pass a test. Seems a bit...

    Hesitant to fly in Florida

    I live in Port St. Lucie Florida and am considering buying a Mavic 2 drone, but after days of reading about all of the FL restrictions and possibly opening myself up to privacy lawsuits, and lack of places to fly has prevented me from taking the plunge. I’m a Nature and Landscape photographer...

    Getting in trouble with the law

    For the past 6 months of having my drone and flying it legally while traveling around the country, I've done many research prior to launching it just to make sure I'm flying within city, state, and federal regulations. However, when I'm on YouTube or other social media sites, I often see people...

    Dubai & UAE

    Hey guys, Seems as though they have banned all drones which have cameras in the UAE for personal use. Has this happened anywhere else? So frustrating as the DJI salesman in the store said it's ok to fly bla bla bla, just do a course, but now seems there are heavy fines in place if you're caught...

    Heads up, The train is in the tunnel.

    I am lucky that my local Library subscribes to 'Rotor Drone Magazine', the July/August 2017 issue has two priceless articles for drone owners. The first is on studying and passing the 107 test. The most important one though is about, WHY THE DRONE INDUSTRY NEEDS YOUR HELP. It is about the new...
