See what limitations DJI implements where you can fly with DJI Geo map

Great price for a great drone. Be careful about flying your new drone without looking up the new regulations that took effect on June 1st. It could cost you a lot of money if you are caught breaking the rules. UPDATE: changes happened in May but since it's nearly mid-June already, doesn't matter.

Currently, recreational flyers can only fly in a limited number of areas called fixed fields. All other areas are illegal for now unless you are a part 107 flyer. Here is a list of the areas:

https://www.faa.gov/uas/recreatio...ation.xlsx

UPDATE: this simply isn't true. as a recreational flyer, you are free to follow the rules and fly in uncontrolled airspace without having to get authorization. it is called Class G as in "G" for good to go. plenty of class G airspace available to most everyone who wants to fly. this is TEMPORARY. however, it is true that recreational flyers are prohibited from flying in controlled airspace FOR NOW.

For all the rules, go here:

https://www.faa.gov/uas/commercial_operators/

Hopefully once the LAANC system is ready for recreational flyers you will be able to use drones again. For now, this is complete bullshit and I would not buy my first drone until this situation is resolved.

UPDATE: if you find a drone deal, buy it now. Rumor has it LAANC could be ready to recreational flyers as soon as mid-July. However, at the same time, it could be the end of the year.

Good luck

Personally, I have no issue with you posting your old deal that you scored, but most others here will.

Why?
1) It's like gloating, nobody here likes it flaunted in their face.
2) Your deal is in the past, it's over. Nobody owns a time machine to replicate the deal.
3) Your deal has no relevance to anyone's ability to score this current deal
4) No one really cares. Most SDers could give a rat's ass about a deal you scored months ago unless it directly effects them getting a better deal now.

Good luck posting in the future. Peace.

I returned my Spark 3 weeks after buying it and paid the full price for the Air when it was $799, well worth it. I have no regrets. At this price, I'm considering buying a second to have as a back up. Also, I have insurance to replace the drone no questions asked through State Farm for $75 a year. Look into getting that as well.

Definitely click through to check out, it showed $679 until it was in my cart. Then as I was checking out it inexplicably dropped to $550.

Is it really a good deal at $550 or should I wait for the price to go down more?
