    Newbie drone owner from the UK with a general drone code question.

    Hi guys, As the title says I'm a newbie drone owner (Mavic Mini) from the UK and have a general drone code question. I'm aware of the rules that you cannot fly above 400ft, over large crowds etc but my question is in reference to the flying over/near a "congested" area. I live on the outskirts...

    Interesting Conversation with Police

    Hey guys, I had an interesting talk with a police officer while flying my drone on a Part107 flight just a few days ago and I thought I’d share it! I was out flying in a Class D airspace, I had unlocked the geo zone and gotten approval through LAANC when I was confronted by a police officer...

    Hello FAA (or Nat'l Equalivent) or . . . Confessions Are Good For The Soul

    It really does give me humor and horror when I read and realize how many pilots out there, (in the many wonderful lands around the globe), lend themselves to self confession. Examples are varied and many of the violations. Violations either by mistake or on purpose. Violations such as "I did...

    Flying in Brazil

    Hi fellow pilots, I am visiting Brazil soon, spending time in Rio de Janeiro and Ilha Grande (an island near Rio). Still debating with myself whether to take my MP with me, as I've read online that there are some restrictions and you can't just fly anywhere, anytime. Add to this all the...

    Canada Class D (SFC - 3000ft AGL) flight

    Hi, A question for you as I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Is it possible to fly a UAV (less than 1kg) commercially (pilot certified) under the SFOC exemption in a Class D airspace (SFC - 3000ft). I read somewhere that you could fly under 30m in those area but can't find it anymore...

    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...

    Unauthorised commercial use

    Fairly sure I'm safe here, but it's an interesting situation. I am not commercially licensed, and do not take photos/video with the intent that they be used commercially. I took this photo in Edinburgh (United Kingdom) - Colin Burn-Murdoch on Instagram: “More #hdr #drone photos of #edinburgh”...

    Bringing but NOT flying in Thailand?

    Hey guys! In September/Oktober I’m going on a trip, visiting Thailand but also Laos and Vietnam. I’ve checked the rules for flying in Laos and Vietnam and that doesn’t worry me at all. But I still need to bring my Mavic Air and I’m worried bringing it with me in Thailand without any...

    If in the US, have you read Sec 336?

    I wonder how much time the average Mavic owners spent reading on line and watching videos about this cool machine before they purchased. I also wonder how much time the same people spent researching the laws that apply to us as hobbyist Mavic pilots. I am astounded by the number of posts...

    Returning from Ecuador and the Galapagos with my Mavic

    I've just returned from my trip to Ecuador. We flew into Quito and then on to Puerto Ayora to catch the Celebrity Cruise Ship Xploration, a 90' Catamaran with 8 staterooms. I did a lot of research about bringing my Mavic into Ecuador and was worried I'd be extorted for a large import fee...

    Regulations in Germany (2018) and reliability of Airmap

    I am looking for reliable, complete, and up-to-date information on drone regulations in Germany, as well as practical advice on flying there. There are several web pages and forum posts on this topic, but most seem incomplete, or they do not fully agree with each other. I do not speak German...

    THE RULES!!

    I am a newbie here, and I have been diligently searching for a good explanation of the rules. I see a lot of questionable videos with comments from people as to the legality of the operation. They all state what the rules are, or are not. Often vehemently. But many times they contradict each...

    I'm travelling there next month and I started looking at regulations in September. I looked here mostly: Drone Laws By Country – UAV Systems International But some of the email addresses are outdated so I had to gather some from other sources. The countries will be Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam...
