I'm aware of the rules on where you can and cannot fly a small drone (under 500g), but haven't found many recommendations on places to fly (plenty of space, nice scenery, of course no legal issues, etc).

Any tips?

Cheers
Hi, recently I bought the mavic mini and have flown it in 3 locations with no problems. One spot was at Zürich lake at the parking Mythenquai 21 close to the "Springbrunnen" I found a quiet place there. Second next to Gold Club Breitenloo, also a nice and quiet place. Then by the Rhine river in Rüdlingen, there's a parking place there. Could you share some good spots you've found?
Cheers

The problem is that video from these is so good that it's near impossible to not film something private.. I was flying mine from my garden, flew around the village, quite high, around 80-100m, so as not to bother the cows.. When I watched the footage on a bigger screen later I could literally see people in their houses and gardens..
Point being that it's pretty hard to to stick to the letter of the law and not invade anyones privacy.. It just takes one person to complain.

But hey .. Great toys..

Certainly, I'm also struggling to find nice places to fly it without people to get mad... Besides I live close to the airport, so I have to drive always a bit, but keen to see some recommendations from fellow about good places to fly. Cheers

Re: Best places to fly drones in Zurich?

Hello,

I have the same problem. Living next to an airport so flying in my area is out of the picture.
I usually go to Greifensee (Parkplatz Camping Rausenbach) to fly and practice but I am too interested in finding new locations to film.

Thanks

Re: Best places to fly drones in Zurich?

This is the general map in Switzerland where you can fly drones: https://www.bazl.admin.ch/bazl/de/ho...hnenkarte.html

As for drone i would recommend a Dji Mavic Mini. They are not so expensive and fun to fly.

It's funny. The blue zone restrictions apply for any drones over 0.5kg and the lovely Mavic mini is 249gr. Does this mean only red and yellow zones are out of the picture?
