    Can we stop all the drone hate?

    A bit of about me, relating to this topic: I've been flying drones for nearly 2 years now. I love everything about it except the people that come arguing that I can't fly here, that they're disturbed by it, and them "threatening" me... I guess most drone pilots here can relate, or had a drone...

    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...

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.

    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...
