Interlaken, Switzerland

Aloha UAV community,

I just returned from a trip to Europe, where we rambled through a few countries, ending in the Swiss alps.  Switzerland, as it turns out, is super drone friendly, and has a well developed, easy to understand set of rules for UAV operation.  To satisfy the insurance part of their rules ($1M CHF liability for all operators, hobbyist or commercial), I found that my PPA coverage is that's awesome!

The trip itself was a whirlwind, and I was able to snag only one flight in this town, during fading light, so I made the most of it and had a go.  Here are a couple of my favs from the set, shot on a Mavic 2 Zoom. 

Enjoy, and Mahalo for viewing!

looks like a great trip.    I tried to get my to take a cruise to Hawaii (not that you would have been there) but we ended up going to Alaska.  












Outstanding trip you took, bro!  Is that first shot taken in Ketchikan?

Actually, I KNOW it is!!!  I used to live on that street, in the house marked with a green arrow.  We used to run down to Burger Queen (they had the best halibut & chips), and worked on the south end at a big zipline tour outfit!  Fun fact:  From the street to our door there are 102 steps.  We counted them every. single. trip.  Also, those staircases that look like boardwalks are actually streets.  They have green street signs and show up on Google Maps as streets.  The iron ore in the bedrock makes road building very expensive, so they limited road construction.  Also, there are only 42mi of roads on the entire island!

Love that town so much, always thinking about a return visit.  The rest of the places on your journey are not familiar to me, but they look gorgeous.  You do a great job of capturing the feeling of being there!
