Im off to KL again this week for a few days for shopping and will take the drone. From what ive found online the DCA is relatively happy with small, recreational drone use provided you're satisfied its safe and outside restricted zones. Is this still the case?
Also, i know KLCC and Putrajaya are out of bounds so what good flight locations are there in and around KL? Are the Botanic Gardens and area around the rugby ground OK for operation? Anywhere else within easy walking or uber distance?

Hey! I will gladly assist anyone visiting Malaysia :)
Hi Kelvin,

Considering to visit KL next week for 24hrs and planning to stay downtown (near Petronas towers). I intend to fly around that and also in Batu Caves, appreciate your feedback in terms of whether that is against any regulations.

Thanks!

KLCC/Petronas is a no fly zone which is patrolled by security and police. I'd say the chances of getting arrested are very high.
Batu Caves is OK but be aware (i) its a holy temple so dont go too close and annoy people and (ii) there are a LOT of people around it and remember the laws about flying over crowds of people (ie dont).

You can always spend a day trip an hour or two away from KL, Sekinchan or Kuala Selangor, pretty scenic.

It's ok to fly in Pangkor and Langkawi, but be mindful of the Langkawi airport.
