    "Operating" a drone in a space versus just "flying over" a space

    I see a lot of regulations that prohibit "taking off, landing, and operating a UAV in X space." However, they do allow UAVs to fly over that space. (And also, the FAA allows UAVs to fly over any non-FAA-regulated space) What is the difference between "operating" a UAV and simply "flying over" a...

    Should I add weight to my Mini to fly in Portugal (Madeira)

    I might be lucky enough to get away for 10 days in Madeira over Christmas and have been doing some research into drone laws which seem to be the same as mainland Portugal. One thing I've seen is that "toy drones" cannot be flown above 30m. Toy drones seem to be defined as under 250g. Obviously...

    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...

    Hello everyone! I'm from Mexico, but I'm living in Belgium (at least until next October). I bought a Mavic Mini to enjoy all the amazing European views but for that I was doing my research about what can and can't I do with my Mavic Mini. I've found a lot of information about Mavic Mini is...

    Got arrested in Europe with a fine of 470 euros.

    I hope you'll find this message helpful. Well, I had my wedding trip in February through Denmark, Germany and Netherlands and everything was perfect until the day "x". The only thing I knew about regulations was the maximum flight height (which is 120 metres or so). I always fly with respect to...

    Reasonable Iceland drone rules

    i thought this to be a practical approach to drone rules. Much more practical than the US rules. Recognizes the low level most hobbits drones fly doesn’t conflict with aircraft. The distance from buildings seems a bit overkill to me. With regards to “Public Buildings” it depends on definition...
