Hello everyone!
I just got an inspire 2 and very excited to go fly and practice shooting... BUT

The more I go out, the more i realize there is really no legal places to fly around here.

Do you guys think we should make a google map with all the spots on where we can LEGALLY launch the drones and fly?

I am all up for it, so please let me know if you guys are with me?

If you comment below with google map pins where it is actually legal and where its "safe" (i can make it 2 different layers) and share within..

looking fwd to it

there's an app for that:
B4UFLY Mobile App
I wish I could follow that map....

Most if not all the parks in bay area are blocked off for drones now, and each district has their own rules that are changing faster then anyone can update the websites...

So just cause that app says safe to fly, you can still get a ticket from the cops because you are in some kind of a park...

True, but it's a start. I'd like to see a map showing Geofencing. I ran into one this weekend. Had no idea it was there

I thought Tampa Bay at first. When you live in that area, all you hear is Tampa Bay Area. Yea, I googled it. You are right. I never been to California. I was reading some on it. I don’t think I belong in an area that won’t let you fly your drone and considers $117.400 as poverty.

I’m free to fly on my mountain top and the free state parks.

I had the same idea the other day! I am sadden to see that no one has taken up your idea. Not only we should create this "living" map that shows legal places to fly...we should also list "cool" spots for videos and photos. Before I start adding my list to it, have you found another place that has the list? Cheers.
