After a round of comprehensive research, our team compiled a list of where to fly a drone in Richmond. We also have this list of drone laws in Virginia that might be helpful. Where do you like to fly your drone in Richmond? We welcome your comments/experiences below.

  8. Hi @Jill Shelley, We appreciate the time you took to let us know that one of the locations on ‘Where to Fly’ Cincinnati is not a legal flying location. While we do our best to keep up with drone laws, it can be difficult to keep track of the drone laws in every city/state in this rapidly evolving industry. We will be updating this location and once again thank you for bringing this information to our attention. Blue skies and safe flying! Chase

  12. Hi @Brad W Owens, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum and thank you for your service! What an awesome career you have had so far. I have always been fascinated by space and the work they do at NASA. It sounds like you have a nice drone fleet. I also have a Phantom 4 Pro and really enjoy it, what is your go to drone?

  13. Hi @Steelrfan85, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! I am not familiar with the HS 100 but I did look at it briefly. It seems like it has a lot of features for the money and overall it has really good reviews. This could be a great drone for under $300, if you would like some more ideas feel free to check out our 'Drone Guide' . Something important to note, I have heard of some cruise lines not even allowing passengers to bring drones on the ship. It would probably be a good idea to find out if you can bring your drone with you on your cruise. Have a great trip! Best, - Chase
  14. Hi @Blue Chips, Welcome to the UAV Coach Community Forum! That sounds like a really interesting project, have you been able to find anything interesting yet with the data collected so far? LIDAR technology is very expensive and not as common currently on smaller drone platforms. However, I think as drone technology continues to advance that LIDAR will be less expensive in the near future. Using a drone for public awareness and education is a great start. If you would like to share any pictures from the project feel free to post them in our 'Aerial Photography' thread. If you would like to share any project videos, those can be posted on our 'Filmmaking/Cinematography' thread. Best of luck with your project! - Chase
