Where to Fly a Drone in Milwaukee

Recommended Posts

It's often challenging to find a legal, safe, and visually interesting location to fly your drone, especially in a densely populated area with one or more airports.

After a round of comprehensive research, our team compiled a list of where to fly a drone in Milwaukee . We also have this list of drone laws in Wisconsin that might be helpful.

Where do you like to fly your drone in Milwaukee? We welcome your comments/experiences below.

So I have a bit of confusion.  

According to the Drone Laws Wisconsin page  you cannot fly a drone in a state park (with some minor exceptions).

And according to the list of where to fly a drone in MKE page  (I'm very thankful for this list!) some of them are parks.

So is there a difference between a state park and the 'other' kind of (which I assume is a 'county') park?

I'm pretty sure that is a wonderfully dumb question.  :)

Okay, so I am a newbie. I misplaced my license, three years ago and my Parrot  Bebop 2 sat in the box for three years. Then the Fed sent me a renew notice. Yea! The battery is haz waste, but I got a new one and the thing still flies. I am just starting to fly it. I flew it in my yard a couple of times. Lost the signal twice too... eventually figured out how to regain control and managed to land it safely one of the times. It is a robust little creature anyway. It still works!?! Anyway I live in the middle of a pretty wide free airspace zone, so tomorrow morning, since the wind is easy, I am taking it to a public park. Mostly a baseball field (early) to practice a little more, where the sky is more clear of trees and houses. 

It is a tiny city park, not a State park and there are no "NO Drones" signs anywhere to be found, so I am going for it. It is no different than any other of the county parks listed for drone flying, so I know of no reason why I can't, presuming it is clear of other people.

It is near the Milwaukee River, so I may be able to fly it down there too. Presuming no fishermen.

If anyone sees a problem with this. I am open to revision.
