    Recreational drone now illegal in most of Canada...

    okay you can't fly higher than 90 meters but you can't be within 75 mete okay... you can't fly higher than 90 meters but you have to be at least 150 meters away from just about everything... how does that make sense?

    Ways To Make Money With Your Drone

    i have done a wedding. the problem is that for most of the ceremony a drone is too loud. incidentally, it was a seaside wedding and the bride and groom took a ride in a dune buggy up and down the beach. the drone was great for filming that segment...

    Any drone flyers in Mexico?

    I am trying to find out what is required as far as permits/licenses to fly a drone in Mexico. I have heard that all drones must be registered regardless whether they're being flown commercially or recreationally. Does anyone know a source for relevant info? Thank you. Dave

    Better Use for CH7??

    I agree that you might consider something for a $10,000 set up. however, i don't think this provides anywhere nearly enough protection for the buck. the 120 costs $1,500.00! it is very big so will seriously impact flight time and, as seen in the video, does not offer a "soft" landing. for the...

    Better Use for CH7??

    just watched some of the videos available on their web site (hope they make better parachutes than vids). in this one (and most of them) it is hard to see the landing but the rate of descent is considerable. in the last one I watched there appeared to be some...
