We had to find an interesting way to get drone shots in the video because it is illegal in Canada to fly drones in national parks. Huge fines if you get caught. See if you can figure out how we got these shots.

Be careful the fine is up to $25000.00 and jail time. There is a dad that flew his drone over his kids playing hockey on two jack lake and got fined 25000. I think it ridiculous myself that drones laws are like this. Just doesn't make sense.

Algonquin will charge you $125 if you have a soup can while backwoods hiking/camping... They automatically assume you're going to toss it. Same for beer cans etc. It's absurd.

I think the biggest thing with droning is don't piss people off and you won't have a problem. Even if it's allowed, if someone's pissed off then you're done.

I think people just get pissed off cause they don't understand what drones are used for. They think people are spying on them, the truth is their lives are not that interesting.

Very true. Most of the time people are just specks doing stuff on camera I'm interested in the scenery and flight experience.

GoPro. I am going there in two days. A bit upset I can’t use my Mavic 2. Maybe I should buy a GoPro tomorrow.
