Re: Flights of fancy: In defence of drones, Dec. 2 column.

I read this very interesting column by Boaz Joseph and felt that since I was new to this hobby, I could add a little more info.

I have a drone and to do the right thing I took a familiarization course from a reputable institution.

My next step was to join a club to gain information from the experienced. This is where I ran into a problem, being that the clubs were full and not taking new members – I was put on a waiting list – or the club did not accept ‘drone’-type unmanned models.

If you belong to a club, you have access to a flying field that complies with the Transport Canada requirements. Not belonging to a club, this is very difficult without travelling some distance and getting permission from a landowner to fly your drone on their land. Insurance also becomes an issue.
