ILLEGALLY flying a DRONE in Canada

Colour Graded with my PM LUTS Pack :
The Music I use:

It’s 2017 – we often asks ourselves, Where can I fly a drone? Is it safe to fly my drone here? Am I allowed to fly a drone here? WILL I BE ARRESTED?

Transport Canada just released a new set of Drone Laws for recreational and professional use. Do I agree with them? Some. But I do think it inhibits creators with how many new limitations are at play.

    Why do you want to buy a drone if you won’t be able to fly it freely??

  2. Nemesis 851 on March 3, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Time to make a new video – as I’m seeing NEW July 2019 laws/rules are coming up in my searches (Canada)

  3. moon beam on March 3, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    I don’t know if you’ve still got that holga but if you do could you please make a video taking photos with it, I think it’d be so interesting to see what you can come up with on 120 film. I know its a cute little toy camera, but its one that enables so many people to shoot medium format film cheaply and I’d just like to see you have some fun with it I suppose

  4. Dann Craig on March 3, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    yeah, drone laws are crazy. you can bring guns more places than drones these days. 🙁

  5. JetSmackedHD on March 3, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    its the RCMP’s problem, not a regional police

  6. Bill Watkins on March 3, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I am a fan, Peter. Keep providing these videos! That being said, I have been a pilot for thirty years or more. Airspace was the domain of trained pilots until recently. Pilots spend hundreds of hours studying for the privilege of operating aircraft in national airspace. Now, someone can buy a drone, unbox it, and launch into that very same airspace. Laws have to be modified to make this a safe transition. Many aviation rules of operation are meant to insure safe separation. These new laws in Canada and the United States are attempting to do just that. Nothing is perfect right away. Here in the United States airplane pilots cannot generally fly below 500 feet in un-congested areas. When they do, it is at an airport. This is just one example. In order to accomplish separation, drone pilots must fly below 400 feet, 100 feet below airplanes, and cannot fly without special permission near airports where airplanes will most definitely be below 400 feet. This is a simple explanation of just one factor. It does, however, make sense. I also fly drones. If we exam the new rules, we will be able to clearly see how the application of new rules is meant to keep everyone safe. Clouds, for instance: I cannot fly any airplane within a certain distance of clouds unless I am on an instrument flight plan. Drone rules are as restrictive as airplane rules. Unless you are on an instrument flight plan with your drone (not possible for now), the drone must remain a certain distance from the clouds. These rules are not arbitrary. My thoughts . . .

    Love your videos Peter!!<3

  8. Doug Cannon on March 3, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    From YouTube music copyrights to illegally flying drones to capture an amazing shot. Since when does the online filming industry starts to get even more restricted?

  9. Cole Denham on March 3, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Thats bull shit

  10. Timothy Paul on March 3, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Here in South Africa, drone laws strictly prohibit you from flying anywhere near any form of accident. I was flying my drone up about 250m and saw an accident happen, police arrived as I was busy landing. One of the officers walked over and asked if I could pop up into the air to get some shots for them😂

    I’d watch it

  13. John Paul Legaspi on March 3, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Nice Video Pete!

  14. Vitaly. S. on March 3, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Marijuana is legal what’s going to kill millions of people, that’s okay no problem.
    But flying drone for hobby wow that’s a huge problem.
    Canada Canada what you thinking.
    Where is the logic???

  15. Sean Stout on March 3, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    I don’t own a drone, however some of those laws are going to make matters worse than they are

  16. Ron Vasserman on March 3, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    I feel like these rules were wrtitten by the same grandmas who hate on the Lime scooters in LA

  18. MotoLife on March 3, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Did you see the new Drone rules come June 2019?

  19. Renê Faller on March 3, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Here in Brazil the airforce control the regulations for drones, but if you have (if I’m not mistaken) less than 180g you don’t need to registrate and the air laws don’t apply to you, except in regards to fly and film to close of people without permission and you can’t fly near the airports or military bases

  20. Frenzay on March 3, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    In belgium we can only fly 10meters with a drone less than 1kg on our own terrain so we can’t fly at fields, or above trees, we can just doo NOTHING, but I don’t care, nobody sees a mavic air flying in a forest at 100meters high

  21. Grant Newman on March 3, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Is that the same field that the YouTuber Stromedy went to?

  22. Jessie Weaver on March 3, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    In Arkansas we have to get a private pilot certification to fly, if you are using it for business purposes. You can even be fined up to $10,000. And a lot of the laws are the same in the United States.

  23. JJ on March 4, 2021 at 12:00 am

    hi 250g is that included battery ? My spark weights 205g without the battery and with the battery is 300g

  24. Mangga Gaming. on March 4, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Little did he know that he cant fly the drone now…🙁

  25. George Bethanis on March 4, 2021 at 12:06 am

    I guess the rules are there to prosecute you if something bad happens and it is your fault. Not sure if they will aggressively enforce these laws. It will be a bummer if they do.

    But yeah, idiots who fly drones over or near airports destroy the drone user community, and screw everyone else in the process.

  26. Rod MacPherson on March 4, 2021 at 12:08 am

    How do you like the new 2019 rules? Seems like it makes things a lot easier for creators.

  27. Tony Silva - SkyViews on March 4, 2021 at 12:09 am

  33. Adibrex on March 4, 2021 at 12:14 am

  34. Rohan Pulavarthy on March 4, 2021 at 12:14 am

  36. Alvaro Torrado on March 4, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Hey Peter, good video. I want to buy a Mavic Mini as it is under 250 grams but I have no idea where I can fly it in Toronto. It is been a while since you posted this video, how the rules are being applied? How can I know where can I fly legally my drone? I read that most parks banned drones

  37. Awais Ahmad on March 4, 2021 at 12:17 am

  43. Anna Kincaid on March 4, 2021 at 12:24 am

    I looked up the no fly zones in the area I live (western Washington) and up in Canada and basically you can’t fly it any where legally. super lame…… We plan to go to whistler and I was hoping to get a few in the air shots not super high up or next to people just to get another angle you know but basically all of whistler, Vancouver and western wa are no fly zones…..

  44. kingbanksss on March 4, 2021 at 12:25 am
