I am going to Skyline Regional Park at the south end of the White Tank Mountains. There are public and state trust lands that the BLM told me drones are permitted. Also I could find no restrictions in Buckeye's laws. I called Buckeye muni airport and the airport manager was cool with it, with my notification. Let me know if I can be of any other help.Going on a trip to Arizona and hoping to take my Phantom 2 to get some shots in. Called a few parks in the area and they say drones aren't allowed. I was looking for suggestions of good places to fly in the area.
On that Estrella Parkway check out the really cool Estrella Star Tower. I was there last year but didn't have my Phantom with me. Lots of open land.
Thanks for the tip. I live in Litchfield Park and will visit there. One thing I wonder how late you were flying? I think we are grounded after night fall. I would take care in posting pictures taken after dark.
I took those with my Canon but if there is no regs in place that prevent you from flying it will make a good subject. In fact if I get time to drive up there I may just do that while I am visiting the valley of the sun as I will be here for a couple weeks.Duh! Just looked back and realized those are not drone photos! MY BAD.
There is a state park probably an hour from Goodyear called Picacho Peak state park. Drones are welcome and you can get some great shots with craggy topography and lots of saguaros. Btw, what parks said you couldn't fly?
