    More reasons to upgrade for a Drone more than 500gm but less than 900 grams 🙂

  2. Life Exotics on August 4, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    What if you are a tourist?

  3. Paul Devey on August 4, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    A complex topic well explained. I have to worry about hitting moose .

  4. Mirko Scanu on August 4, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Greetings from Sardinia Italy, have you news regarding uk and Easa for the European drone regulation 2021? thanks. I learned that the uk a1 a3 open category certificate is valid for all european member states

  6. George G on August 4, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Nice video Celine!

  7. Fiveandime Didou on August 4, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    The first video of iCeline in 2021 ! I’m glad to see you back Celine ! good thing you did a video about the new regulations, it was kind of blurry up to now, it sounds like I will try to stay in the A1 category ! The Mavic 2 Air will be perfect for traveling everywhere in Europe ! The drone spot app sounds like something we all should upload in order to be safe ! You have taken off your drone on a boat ! Wow I’m impressed ! Thank you for this easy guide !

  8. Coast to Coast Drones' on August 4, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Wow …lots of great info …I Thank you so much for sharing !! Wish the time was right for you to live stream with us ..we are covering this subject in an upcoming show ourselves !!

    big fan from Bangladesh ❤️❤️❤️

  10. Bjørn Carlsen on August 4, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    Thanks for the informative video! I live in Norway, which now have the same regulations. I took the course online and got sertified this weekend. But here we are alllowed to fly at night, and I belive it will be legal in Europe as well?

  11. TSP0VF on August 4, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Hi! Thank you for your detailed summary!
    Can you give us an advice for worldwide drone rules? We are a traveller couple and we tried to collect informations about drone rules in different (worldwide) countries but it isn’t that easy :).
    So do you know any source (blog, page, yt channel) where we can find up-to-date informations about different countries restrictions (use, india, australian etc) and airlines rules?

  12. Vic Can on August 4, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Thank you for this Celine. Good thing I found your video. I have read already some info about flying a drone here in Belgium but in the end I got confused 😀 . I am planning to buy a Mavic Mini 2 for my vlogs. Looks like I really have to register it and take that online test.

  13. Don Joyce on August 4, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Good summary! A bit boggling of course… governments seem to enjoy the complications.

  14. Rick 2Bees on August 4, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Thanks for the clear explanation for us Europeans….. Greetz from a fellow belgian…. 😎💪

  15. Nicoproart on August 4, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Nice info

  16. JaagupKu on August 4, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    This video did not cover self built freestyle drones. As I understand <250g is A1 and <25kg is A3 for home built freestyle racing drones.

  17. Marius Salomon on August 4, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Very good video

  19. Shab Chowdhury on August 4, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    If i buy the air 2 would i be able to fly in spain and portugal? I want to fly my drone for recreational purposes

  20. Julian HG on August 4, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    great video! i’m still finding it a little confusing, if my drone is 249g is it easier in spain than over 250g? thanks!

  21. GrowYour OwnFood on August 4, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    I am in Portugal and the local police just flew a drone over my property, hovering for several minutes at upper window level of my house. They then flew it over our heads. Is this legal?

  22. عبدالرزاق المنذري on August 4, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Very Good

  23. Sonny Greenwich Jr on August 4, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    fab Celine! Thanks for this I never would have known the laws have changed! Is there any talk of the Mavic mini specifically? I mean because of its low weight?

  24. Renaud F on August 4, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Bonjour. If I wanted to take the test to be certified by EASA is the test online? I have my FAA certification in the U.S. but always take my drone to Europe and want to be compliant.

  25. Tim Crook on August 4, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Great vid, I have just done the EASA course and have a LUX Registration number. Can I fly in Spain? The Spanish love bureaucracy,is there anything else I need to put in place to fly there?

  26. choudechou on August 4, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Welcome back! More regulations mean less liberty 🐾

  27. Tanbir Outdoorsman on August 4, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Hi I will be travelling across France Switzerland Italy & Greece. I will be carrying a small drone like mavvic air 2s. I want to take videos of the beautiful sceneries. What do i need to do as a tourist??

  28. Der Alterego on August 4, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Stupid rules and only cause governments are afraid we uncover their dirty secrets 🙈🙈🤣 anyway i registered my drone and have put the reg number on it, then i tried to do the test and that does not work yet due covid the site with the lessons and online exam doesn’t work. As usual they make a rule but are bit ready to give us the correct information and cources

  29. niciie100 on August 4, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    On the austrian website dronespace.at, it says that drones below 250g dont require a course and test. Can you confirm this?

  30. Marcus Majart Show on August 4, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Very nice and clear video. And I learned there’s was an app, it can be very useful indeed 👍🏼

  31. Otto Julian on August 4, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Very interesting to consider for my next travel. So A1 doesn’t need any online tests right?

  32. Mickey Bleyweert Videografie on August 4, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Hello Celine,
    I’ve learned that flying at night in Open Category is allowed. But a green light is required on the drone so you don’t break the VLOS rule.
    I’m from Belgium to btw 😉

  33. elli channel on August 4, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    what about mini 2 with 249 g ? 🤔

  34. Jithu Anand on August 4, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    OMG. Yesterday I bought DJI Air 2S in Germany. It is only 570 grams. I put label with my details, took drone insurance and registered in Ferderal Aviation Department. Can I fly this drone in a place where nobody lives…?

  35. daniel o rorke on August 4, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    hi. this information is very good. can you tell me what the VLOS Distance is?

  36. Carpiuc Cristian on August 4, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    What do i need to do to fly a dji mini 2 în belgium?????

  37. BikerBro on August 4, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    i dont know why i am so in love with your English accent 🤗🤗

  38. Umbra Jord on August 4, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    basically, screw you/me/everyone if they want to do drone racing and acrobatics.

  39. Ririlan on August 4, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    L’animation est superbe. Bonne semaine 🙂

  40. Alex on August 4, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    And when will dji upgrade all the dones to comply with the new regulations? Not interested in buying a dji drone today to only be able to use it in a transitional class for 2 years.

  41. Moteurs Tv on August 4, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Hello !! Bon alors je suis dans la catégorie A1 : ouf !! En France l’assurance civile peut servir en cas d’accident. Aussi, pour vérifier si je peux voler dans certains endroits je consulte le site officiel en France : "géoportail" pour être certain de ne pas être hors la loi 😜
    Super vidéo Céline !!!👍👍

  42. Zee Jimi on August 4, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    I am surprised that in the “Open” category visual line of sight (vlos) is compulsory for all weight classes (A1, A2, A3). According to http://www.dronespace.at the exceptions are only allowed for flights in “follow-me” mode, or in the case that the pilot is supported by an observer/spotter. I think that this information is insufficiently clear as to the role, and the qualification of the observer/spotter. Does it mean that in the event of a drone being flown in fpv mode e.g. mean that the observer/spotter only needs to keep the drone in vlos so that it does not get lost, and that obstacles are avoided, or must he/she be qualified to take over the control of the drone ? I have not seen specific rules or advice for fpv (first person view = the pilot control the drone by looking through the onboard camera by using fov goggles) drone pilots, in fact I have not as yet even seen the term fpv being used in the regulations at all ! Will the fpv racing events therefore be held without consideration of the new EU regulations ? Under what rules/category will the many people who already own a fast fpv-drone be allowed to fly his/her drone in the future ???

    EU is quickly transforming into a dystopian he hellhole

  44. NaMerre on August 4, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Fuck this drone regulation!

  45. Gianni D'Ambrosio on August 4, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Can a US citizen traveling to Europe fly his drone in the OPEN category? How can I get a license?

  46. Travel Escapes on August 4, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Thanks for the informative video! You mention I have to take tests at the drone school for my DJI Mavic Pro 2. What is a drone school? Can I do that once I get to Europe? I’m currently in Medellin, Colombia and plan to fly to Europe in August.

  47. Ray Hayden, J.D. on August 4, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Excellent video iCeline! I had flashbacks to sections of an online FAA Course I took ALC-451,Part 107 Small UAS Initial – Part 61 Pilots. Dropping another LIKE on your video! Watching and Supporting!

  48. lampros bellos on August 4, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    love your content keep it up

  49. Vantablack on August 4, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Seems like it’s pointless to buy a Mini 2 now. I’ll go for Air 2.

  50. ilija ilija on August 4, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    What about the drones lighter than 250 grams? I thought i don’t need any type of certificate or permission for that..
