DRONE: WHERE AND HOW?
A licence is not necessary for flying a drone. A permit is only required for drones with a flying weight of 5 kilos or more. Models from the DJI Phantom series, for example, weigh less than 1.5 kilos.
Flying is generally forbidden around crowds of people, military installations, streets, motorways and power plants. As a rule, there is a no-fly zone with a radius of 1.5 kilometres around airports. Numerous cities have special regulations about where flying is not permitted.
The prices of quadcopters vary considerably. Simpler, less expensive models are controlled using a smartphone app, but only make snapshots. Drones with remote controls and high-resolution cameras that transmit live pictures are more expensive.
