Confessions | Fined For Flying Drones In Singapore | Quit Drone FPV…ALMOST

Finally got the courage to tell the story of how much a drone fine cost me back in 2019. Took nearly 2 years to finally go to court and receive my punishment.

Dont get yourself into the same situation. Check out these links if you are flying drones in Singapore:
Drone Registration with CAAS
No-fly-zones(NFZ) in Singapore
Drone flying into Changi International Airport

This hustle is living out my dreams. Like what i do?

    People sometimes lose their minds and forget that law enforcement sometimes looks for infractions on posted videos. Your infraction is a small one, it’s not like pushing a bolide at 250Km/h where the limit is 50-80 and then proudly posting it or flying the drone vertically up to 8000m high just to get as many likes as possible.

  2. Joseph Ng MH on July 24, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Sorry to hear about your case. BTW, I just bought a Drone and want to try to fly it. I watches several YouTube but couldn’t sure where to legally fly drone because different past videos showed different areas i heard that some of places already banned. Could you help to list those places here?

  3. Timothy Frederick Church on July 24, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    I got a speeding ticket in california. Driving sucks for work! Drones should be legal everywhere as long as theres no airplanes and helicopters?

  4. Tomgang Dk on July 24, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Love you Rahim πŸ‘πŸ‘ was it 4000 us dollars waow if

    Moral of the story – dun share your post on social media. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜…

  14. Ced Louis on July 24, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    You’ve taught me sooo much about FPV…all I have to say is Thank You!! And please keep posting awesome content!

  15. William B. Francis on July 24, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Thank you for sharing. We are all learning from your bad experience. Salute! Since I came to know about No Fly Zone I have given up my hobby of aero modelling. Take care

  16. Anthony Rossi on July 24, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Your the man for sharing this story! I like how you use this experience to help better the community in regards to where not to fly.

  17. Fie fiesity on July 24, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Thanks for sharing bro… I used to fly too, my Yuneec Q5004k bt now after this strict laws i stop flying but i do wanna fly again, i jz hope i could start again ☺️

  18. Augustine Appadurai on July 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Thanks so much for sharing. It takes a lot of courage to keep moving after all you have gone through. The laws on drones are not easy for a layman. We need smart guys to come out with guidelines for drone flyers and for everyone to enjoy. Its difficult finding and identifying places. I am giving up drone flying for the time being. God bless you.

  19. Andy Severn on July 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Owch! That must have hurt, though diving the DBS building was probably only going to end badly. Ah, well such is life. Next time, save the money, hop on a plane and come fly with the crew over here in Oxford! Much cheaper, more places to fly! πŸ™‚ Gonna have to pick your brains over where to fly next time I’m over in S’Pore. The registration looks pretty straightforward at least.

  20. Jaydee Panganiban on July 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Thanks for sharing man. I was caught Flying a microdrone near a police station. It was an honest mistake, I was apprehended by a police officer because it was deemed illegal to fly near a police station. Good thing it was settled in a nice way but it was really a traumatic experience.

  21. Mohamed Ali on July 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Thanks for sharing bro . Best wishes for ur channel and ur creations .

    Thank you for sharing, bro. Your content has been making the community more aware.

  23. SK Jackson on July 24, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Bro I’m from India, i completed bsc aeronautical applied science, can you please tell, How to i will become a drone pilot in Singapore? Please tell me bro πŸ₯Ί

  24. Ted David on July 24, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Chewing gum in Singapore can be a problem …. just saying. Tough place.

  25. carl marciano on July 24, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Thank you Rahim for sharing an experience that will surely make us drone pilots always follow all the rules, for the sake of our hobby. I have plans to visit Singapore in a short time for vacation and I have plans to bring my drone, I have registered my drone with CAAS and purchased the label, but unfortunately as of now, I cannot complete my registration because of the application is still under maintenance. How do you think Rahim is still fit to bring drones to Singapore? Thanks again for sharing your experience with us

  26. srandall31 on July 24, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    I appreciate you taking the time to share such a scary and stressful thing you had to deal with. I can’t imagine having to go through something like that. I find it very strange that they spent so much time investigating you on this. I could understand if it was obvious that you were blatantly breaking the law and actually caused harm or destruction of property, but the other side to this is that they were indeed following the law and you did break it so not much you can really argue there. I can tell you if this happened here in the U.S. as you described and especially during that time frame, you most likely would not have been fined or got into any trouble. The FAA here spends more time going after the bigger fish making much more serious offenses. Good luck in your future flying, I’m sure you’ll be one of the safest flyers around after this!

  27. Lionel Tan on July 24, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    πŸ˜₯thanks for sharing your story!

  28. sK2 Photography on July 24, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Hi bro, the fine can be paid in installments? Currently I’m waiting for the judgement for flying drone. 😒

  29. Andres Poggi on July 24, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Man >> I feel sorry for you … I can’t belive that happen to you.. They shoulf forget that.. Still makes videos your good in that..happy fly>>>

  30. ducados17 on July 24, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    does it mean if in a no fly zone i can fly below 60m ?

  31. Vlogger Maiya on July 24, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    I really like your video. I invite you to my channel, I hope you like the videos.🐦

  32. Zatez 5.56 on July 24, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Good call when waiting for the case to close. Hopefully drone pilots utilize Onemap to know where are the NFZs and TRAs. Would love to see the community grow. Glad you have the courage to share with everyone. Safe flight!

  33. Mohammad Hudzaifi on July 24, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Hehe… Good content bro… Late nights chatting about it that time. Wateva it is… We move on.. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

  34. RobRambo psvr on July 24, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    No negative feedback man, it happens, whoever wants to be like that to you probably has nothing better to do then harass you. You were just having fun, nothing malicious. Keep up the good videos

  35. p on July 24, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Hi bro can I ask a question coz I can’t really find a good answer on Google regarding flying fpv in singapore with goggles , with the law saying must fly with line of sight I’m confuse

  36. Kerama Fpv on July 24, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    That whole situation was just a way for them to extort money out of you and who knows how many of the people in the same situation. $12,000 is a lot of money especially when when converted to their money. I will never step foot in Singapore

  37. KoWaBuNgA FPV on July 24, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Thanks for sharing bro. Takes courage to tell your story and serves as good information for other pilots. Continue to sendit!

  38. Do More Live Happier on July 24, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Thanks for sharing your experience. It is still a challenge for many who are new to the sport of FPV to grasp the regulations. I hope that people can be sent for counselling or attend a training course first before a fine is being issued. Spending $4k for a mandatory course to help him or her is more productive than paying a fine. Just like u, I believe that most flyers do not have malicious intent. Continue to make great content!

  39. Adnan Aziz on July 24, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    I just deleted all drone footages posted on youtube after hearing your experience

  40. Joud Joo on July 24, 2022 at 8:32 pm

  41. Marco Antonio on July 24, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    I’m sorry you had to go through all that, stinks to have that level of a lesson…

  42. Kerama Fpv on July 24, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    I’m sorry all of this crap happened to you but this is what happens when you have old men making rules for technology that they don’t even understand. Many of these rules and how they handle The situation’s dealing with drones is just over the top. They are managing to suck all of the life and fun out of the hobby. Like in America I think it’s crazy that you need a license to fly a drone if you are making money from it but if you’re not you don’t need a license.

  43. Prohodaction on July 24, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    om, total incredible ~:))

  44. Vinnie Mah FPV on July 24, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Good for you to open up about this. I can imagine the stress and unhappiness for you and your love ones during that period. Putting it out like this will definitely help you get over this because only then nobody will have the power to say anything about you. I’m sure this video will help many others to learn from your mistake too! Keep it up!

  45. nug gget on July 24, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    just gotten a dji drone, if i were to fly it in a NFZ, can i still fly it low? Like at around 10m – 20m? It just sucks because singapore, especially the government is so money grabbing man…

  46. Grabe Jud on July 24, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    a big eye opener here for those whos into fpv in singapore as well as those planning to delve in to fpv. thank you for this experience and yes we will learn from it. keep up the content

  47. Tamrend Mahmood on July 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Can they iD a registered drone if it was detected in a ‘No Fly Zone’ ? Or you were iDeed from your videos ?

  48. blind optimist on July 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Sucks man, sorry that happened to you.

  49. Travel Explorer on July 24, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    Lets be honest, flying your drone in Singapore gets boring fast. Too many NFZs for an already small city-state, and the 60m AMSL limit is ridiculous when most other countries has it at 120m. Can’t wait for PLAB to be demolished. Insightful video though. Kudos.

  50. RUSH on July 24, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    dont give up my man, you were one of the reasons i started FPV 8Months ago i started fpv with the DJI Fpv now i have 6 Digital Quads take care brother
