I am upgrading from a "Toy" drone to the P4P. I am looking for places to fly in SW Florida that won't break any rules or regs. I am also looking for instruction on notifying local airports when I am planning to fly inside 5 nautical miles.

Just be careful as in Florida I believe that it's unlawful to take off or land in their state parks, or any National Park across the Country.

I was hoping there might be some new drone friendly public locations....I have read the ordinance about taking off and landing. I was really, really, hoping that some cities, counties, etc. created a drone friendly park somewhere within an hour from where I live.

I live in one of the best places to fly according to hivemapper.com. I know that I need to contact RSW to fly here. Who do I call and what do I tell them? Can they say "No"?
