    New from the Bay Area, Ca

    Hello, I'm a seasoned photographer, but a newbie to drones. I've read the guielines, registered, in the process of testing, and got b4ufly and Aloft. I feel like I have all my ducks in a row, but I'm having such a hard time researching places worth flying and photographing. The Bay Area...

    San Francisco in Quarantine

    A short film using the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic Air 2, Osmo Pocket and Sony A7riii. It has been quite a surreal experience seeing the empty streets of San Francisco as people stay at home. I wanted to capture this point in time so we can reflect back when this is all over. This short film goes...

    Updated place to fly in SF Bay Area/East Bay/South Bay

    Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum and to the drone scene. I've been flying my MA for about a month now. But that's been next to the park that I live by in Fremont, CA. I would like to go somewhere else to fly my MA. After hours of research (looking at Airmap, googling for safe areas), I...

    Summer Road Trip - 5700 Miles - 14 States

    Flying around the Bay Bridge in San Francisco.

    Hello everyone, I am fully aware that the Golden Gate Bridge is now a No Fly Zone. I was wondering if any of you have flown around the bay bridge/treasure island area? I was checking one of the UAV maps online and it showed the area around the Bay Bridge as a fly zone, meaning there are no...

    Mavic Pro: I hate seagulls! (video)

    So here I was, awake early in the morning, ready to fly my Mavic at the Bay bridge. However there were a few photographers there taking the morning blue hour so I decided to not fly in case my mavic's lights leave light trails in their long exposure shots. Once they left I start flying but...
