Options suited to travel
You've done your research, you're free to fly, but which one to fly? Perhaps a better choice for travel is a small drone, portable. Wirecutter, a New York Times company that reviews products, recommends a few camera drones, including DJI Tello, for about $ 100. These photos and videos will not be produced as high as their big counterparts, but a great choice is to travel because of their small and little cost.
On the plane
Lithium ion or lithium ion polymer batteries are usually used, and the F.A.A. prevents any type of spare lithium batteries in checked luggage. There are batteries in a device that are fine, but the ones are not. However, you can bring most of these people with you. The … t PDF is convenient for it to explain the things allowed and where, but check your actual airline for any additional rules.
What to expect if you are accepted
Law enforcement authorities and governments of all sizes build up threats that may seriously have ridges. Your drone is classified in a national park, for example, as a misconduct, with a maximum fine of $ 5,000 and six months in prison.
Countries have implemented similar fines. Depending on the violation, in Britain you could be fined £ 2,500 (more than $ 3,000) for you between a few hundred British pounds on the spot. In Japan it is up to 500,000, or about $ 4,700. Motherboard, which is part of Deputy Media, used an FOI request to receive a list from the F.A.A. of all fines she has charged so far.
If the police or local authorities confiscate your door, there is no guarantee that you will get it back. So it's smart to investigate local laws before you disappear and look for any signs “without drone”, often quite prominent near parking, entrances and ticket kiosks.
Always think about your travelers
Signe Brewster, A staff writer and expert in Wirecutter trenches wrote the Wirecutter guide referred to above. It offers one final piece of advice:
“I like to say that I am very impressed when I fly. If I am in a tourist destination and others within comedy, I'm not flying. I wouldn't want to hear 10 bass around, so I'm not about to be the first one. Do not fly above the crowds and do not pay attention to signs that prohibit thones.
