Flying Recreational Drones in France | VLOG | Advice for tourists

Given the recent hype about the Paris video uploaded by a UK Tourist which absolutely went against all common sense and respect to other enthusiasts in France. I made this video to share my experience of flying in the south over the weekend as well as some advice for flying your drone in France when you visit.

My south of France travel video

Use this map to refer to no fly zones and fly zones with altitude limits.

Other English Sources for drone information for France

This video is not endorsed by anyone, I am making this to spread awareness to other recreational drone enthusiasts.

    The picture of that lighthouse was really cool!
    Me personally, living in the SF Bay Area, I have to drive a good 10-20 miles to fly in a safe area.
    That’s ok though, gets us out of the house. That’s a big part of it anyways.
    Beautiful stills Anthony!

    Then leave the drones home. Don’t contaminate France.

    Nice video, question though how do you get land owners permission to take off and land ? Or don’t you need it in France?

    Congrats on your French! Better than most French chavs(which make up a large portion of France these days😂).

    Thanks for the video – Is there an app so or a way to view this information i google maps, so you know if you are in or out of a no fly zone?

    Hey man! Very informative video! Thanks! Im going to Cannes next week and bringing my M2P of course) Im totally down with flying safe and all the rules. I just never had any type of insurance on my drone. Should I get one specifically for this trip? Thanks!

    this morning i wanted so bad to film steam coming off the pond but my bebop 2 could not video the steam, i was so down. Why did you pick the mavic air and not the mavic pro?

  17. speedsweets67 on August 27, 2020 at 11:19 am

    Thank you Anthony. I was planning to bring the drone with me for the summer holidays. So, this is just what I was looking for. As always thanks for a top-video.

  18. Martin Robinson on August 27, 2020 at 11:19 am

    Thank you so much Anthony for sharing this. I was looking into purchasing a drone and fly in France, however I doubt that will happen now. The whole area where I go is RED! What a shame they restrict us so much. Thanks again

  19. Kęstutis Šak on August 27, 2020 at 11:21 am

    Is it allowed to use a DJI mavic mini (249 grams) drone in Chamonix, where flying is prohibited or altitude is limited?

  20. Denis McGowan on August 27, 2020 at 11:22 am

    Thanks for this information. Just what I needed.

  23. Walner Espinoza Bares on August 27, 2020 at 11:26 am

    Hey Anthony! So I’m currently living in France but I’m from Panama. I’m super confused about the drone insurance, I don’t know if I have to get one from France, from Panama or is there like an international one. It’s kind of frustrating. So if you could help me out, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
