hello everyone my name is Nick and I am

asked all the time about very strong

laws in different states cities counties

Oh also this is not legal advice now

either you live in or plan on visiting

South Carolina and you want to fly your

drone here is every drone law you need

to follow now there are a couple

different 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 here are the federal laws

you need to 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

hour

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 in South Carolina there is an

airspace restriction around the Savannah
