parts of this there's the federal laws

the state laws as in the city laws and

you must abide by all of them now if

you're flying for fun a lot not for cash

follow now if you are flying

commercially skip to this time code

firstly you must register your drone

with the FAA drone zone website I'll

link it below you must fly within visual

sight you must fly below 400 feet your

drone must be under 55 pounds oh that is

a big drum you must never fly near

another aircraft if you're flying within

5 miles of an airport you must notify

the control tower and you must never fly

near emergency response efforts now for

the commercial fliers you must hold a

remote pilot's license issued by the FAA

you must also register your drone with

the FAA drone zone website your drone

must be under 55 pounds you must fly in

Class G airspace you must fly below 400

feet you must fly during the day or at

civil twilight which is 30 minutes after

sunset you must fly under 100 miles per


Debbi fast you must yield the

right-of-way to all manned aircraft you

can't fly over people and you cannot fly

from a moving vehicle unless in a

lightly populated area now these things

can be waived but you must get clearance

from the FAA beforehand now that we got

the federal laws out of the way which

our country why do you always have to

follow these laws here are the state and

local laws it is illegal to wet

or fire a projectile from your drone now

there is a few exemptions setting

pre-emptive wildfires propelling safety

equipment or emergency supplies to

people lost in the wilderness or trapped

in burning buildings controlling

wildlife predators such as wolves and

coyotes and aiding arborists climbing

trees now property owners must give a

notice to drone operators if they do not

want them flying over their property

they can also take legal action for

multiple occurrences after the notice

has been given you may not record

someone who has a reasonable expectation

of privacy and lastly you must not fly

infrastructure these facilities include

oil and gas refineries power plants
