A drone can be a relatively expensive investment for a hobby, and I didn’t want to crash it within hours or days of receiving it. The way I like to look at it is it’s like a flying laptop.

I’m a complete stickler for the rules. Whenever I fly my drone in a new place, I check all drone rules to make sure I can fly safely. However, with quickly changing laws and regulations, there are plenty of times where the law hasn’t quite caught up with the realities of flying a drone.
