    Incorrect drone rules in news article

    I have found a news article from 2021 which talks about someone getting fined for flying a drone (Inspire 2) over a school, over the kids. Fair enough, but later they mention the drone regulations in Mallorca (well, back in 2021) but they are completely wrong. Check this out: Click to enlarge...

    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.

    UAV Regulation Macau

    Most Macanese drone pilots should know that in Macau if you don't have a special license it isn't legal to fly above 30m (98.5 ft). Is there any problem if someone flies above the limit (50m for example)? I'm a beginner with the "luck" of living in a place where drone rules are very strict...

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...
