Title says it all; any tips on good drone spots for either nice videos or for long range?

I've called Santa Monica Police Dept before going down there. The beaches and the pier are a no fly zone unless you wanna get fined. Apparently all beaches are off limits to drones according to the police dept.

Yep no issues whatsoever. You can also fly around the Rose Bowl on no events days, cleared by their security office ahead of time.

If you ever want to meet at the light house let me know, me another member from this forum could meet there.
