    I need some clarification on LAANC and flying as a hobbyist.

    So, I want to fly my drone near me house but I am just inside the five mile radius of an airport. I found out I have to “notify” the airport to be able to fly legally without a part 107 license. I found out about LAANC and really liked the idea of not having to call every time I fly. I tried...

    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...

    Washington Proposed Drone Law HB1049

    I just read Washington State HB1049, which is in committee at this time. It appears to me that it would make it illegal to fly a drone over any private property, and make it possible for any farmer to sue you for flying over his farm, or for the local gendarme to arrest you for same. Check it...

    Is it legal and ethical to fly near firefighters in a case like this?

    I live right next to this marina. I could have sent my Mavic out to shoot this fire, but thought it might be a distraction or even illegal. (This isn't like a massive wildfire with an NFZ obviously) I am still new to the hobby and trying to learn the law and what's ethical. I have no real...

    Is what DJI does with the Mavic legal?

    Is this even legal?

    This is for the folks with some aviation/legal background. For those who have not had an unexpected NFZ forced landing, I wish you never do, but many of us have. I am talking about being in the air, either by self authorizing, or it not being necessary due to the software not catching it, or...

    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

    Best Legal Flying Areas near (or in) NYC

    Hey guys, Just curious if any NY'ers have preferences for legal sites for flying within 50 miles or so of NYC. I will be going out with a friend who needs to log practice hours so he can fly for his company. So, we need to find places that are actually official, not just super safe. His...
