    I fly FPV so is impossible for me to freak out flying my Mavic 2 pro 🤣

    Hey what’s good bro , loved the video. Im traveling to LA for the first time this weekend for a UCLA college tour. Im staying near everything so I wanted to get some shots of the Hollywood sign and maybe the staples center if that’s not bad to do. I looked into the DJI app and I did my research on the GEO zones. I just wanted to be EXTRA careful. This is my first time in LA and I’ve always been a huge fan of the city. Other than those two places I wanted to get some shots on Vince beach, Santa Monica pier, and UCLA after im done touring the campus. if you could tell me if im good or not flying over those sites that would be great! ( I know not to fly over people). I also have my part 107 license so im not sure if that would help or hurt in certain flying situations maybe? Have a good one!

    Hey Johnathan, thank you for the video. Do you know if you can fly at places like Santa Monica, Venice beach, Hollywood signs? My girlfriend and I are planning a trip down there from Vancouver, BC next week and would love your input before bringing my Spark down there.

    Yo, this super helps. I see tons of people flying a drone near InterContinental Hotels on instagram.

    I have a Mavic Pro Platinum, I moved to LA almost 2 months ago and I never few yet because I find it dangerous in some point trying to record Santa Monica Pier for example. Helicopters flying low, seagulls, distraction… 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Your scenarios are a bit off. Most drones worthy of being registered have all kinds of sensors that really won’t make them crash into a building.. and you just said basically 2 rules.. all the rest was filling in the gaps and really nonsense bs. Sorry dude, work it up.

    Help Im a new drone flyer I recently purchased a Mavic 2 Pro and from Elmonte California any spots I can practice and get comfortable with drone flying Im a hobbyist not a commercial or bussiness just recreational

    do you have to register a toy drone like a Tello just if you be videoing yourself or a selfie ?

  14. Toffer Kim on July 8, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Thanks on taking the time to do this 🙂

    Lived in LA my entire life and just got a Mavic Mini a couple months ago. I live in the SF Valley so I’ve been to the Airfield in Woodley Park a bunch of times (has a blue Authorization zone) that you must unlock. Flown at a couple of parks locally and haven’t had any issues. This is what I love about the Mini it’s so small and quiet that people really don’t notice or find it imposing at all which might be why I haven’t got any complaints. As for going to the beach or tourist areas that’s probably going to be an issue.

    This was great thanks! It was perfect for my exact scenario; finding info on whether I can fly at my own house because I’m right south of lax. Didn’t know there was this kind of zoned map on dji.
    And as for JJ… supposedly if you get an FPV drone and loose signal no sensor will stop it from falling out of the sky and hitting a building…

    Flying is scary sometimes.
