"Drone regulations in Europe generally are more strict but I still fly all over Europe. I just avoid Urban areas and places where drones are prohibited. In the US noone will trouble you if you do likewise. I do think Urban areas are a bad idea but…"

Marc Dornan replied to Federico's discussion Recreational Flight in U.S. a couple of doubt for my DJI Spark
"Just avoid crowds and Urban areas and you will be fine. Do not use it in National Parks and check State Parks. But basically noone is going to care much as long as you are sensible."

Marc Dornan replied to Seppo's discussion RFD900, RFD900+ - New long range radio modem
"Dragonlink v3 does all of that with full bi directional Mavlink. 12 channels. If you get the 1.5W RX you can also have 40km of range. Not DIY though. Google ULRS if you want DIY."

Marc Dornan commented on hiroshi takey's blog post [COMMUNITY] - Today, Ardupilot banned to me from and my related Ardupilot project.
"Pity the URUS stuff was removed. I did not realize that. I wish the mods were just open about why this happened. I think it had little to do with stated reasons but likely the level of paranoia I saw. Why not just be upfront about it."

Marc Dornan replied to Boas61's discussion Nano Talon or similar plane, with Pixhawk - is it possible?
"You can easily fit a Pixracer. A 200g camera will make this plane heavy. It will fly. This is not a good mapping platform for serious applications. It will be knocked around in the wind. Too small. "

As soon as I get them I will do so. Maybe we can kickstart his little hobby into something better for himself.
