A cruise ship is a very large chunk of steel with lots of communication systems on it so I would think there would be a lot of interference.
You would have to fly very, very close to have any magnetic interference issues.Well, that raises another question. What would be a safe distance?
Interesting, thanks for the info!You would have to fly very, very close to have any magnetic interference issues.
Probably closer than 10 feet from the hull.
If you are at a distance that allows you to photograph the whole ship rather than closeups of small parts of the ship, you would have no issues.
Likewise, the ships navigation equipment isn't going to affect your drone.
How do I know?
I specialise in photographing ships and shoot several hundred each year.
if you are flying near the port of Miami or Ft Lauderdale scout your location first. There are lots of low flying recreational aircraft in those areas. Seaplanes, helicopters etc. South Pointe Park in Miami is great for getting shots of Cruise Ships.Are there any restriction in the US about flying near a moving cruise ship?
