    Drone Insurance Needed? Switzerland

    Hi all. I'm a relatively new drone operator. I'm going to Switzerland next week (I live in the US) and was considering taking my drone with me. The Switzerland drone laws seems pretty straightforward except one: ' If you operate a drone weighing more than 500 grams (1.1 pounds), you must...

    Rule Changes Since 2017

    Hi All, As a quick background, I had a Phantom 3 Pro back in 2017(ish) but ended up selling it for a variety of reasons. I'm now thinking of picking up a Mavic 2 Pro and getting back into the hobby. I was looking at the rules on the FAA site and noticed quite a few changes, but wanted to make...

    LAANC Unavailable

    So I’m new to flying altogether and am piloting a Mavic Mini in Greenville, SC. There are a few parks in Greenville that are larger and nicer (Conestee Park and Falls Park for the locals) that I was planning on flying in, but they’re covered by authorization zones due to nearby airports. Tried...

    What documentation do you carry with you when flying?

    I am a recreational flier in the USA. I try to fly without bringing attention to myself so I usually avoid people if I can and try to fly where there are no people.

    I am sure this has been asked 100 times so I apologize for it, but I could not find the exact answer I was looking for. I hold my 107 certification, but like anyone here I like to fly for fun as well. I know I am still allowed to fly for fun, but am I allowed to use my 107 perks to fly for...

    400 Feet Limit Bypass?

    So recently I have heard that drone users are allowed to fly over 400 feet AGL if they are flying within 400 feet of a large structure. (Ex. A user can fly 400 feet over a 300-foot water tower for a total AGL measurement of 700). I was wondering two things: 1) Is this information true? 2) If...

    Recreation Drone Insurance guide UK - What's available?

    Still no "all-in" drone insurance for recreational UAV flyers in the UK. Some cover PL, some accident/theft etc, a few cover fly-aways, most don't. The recreational market must be a potential goldmine for an insurance company that ticks the right boxes. Who do you use? He's a quick over view of...

    I am using Airmap to tell me what the restrictions are around places I intend to fly. However I still have a few question on the use of this app. I am going to throw out a few understandings .. if any of it is wrong, someone please correct me. First.. I fly for fun. Not a commercial flyer. So...
