Hey, can you guys share your experience with the drones, plz?

 

Looking for one to check my gutters and would like to get one, none expensive and with a camera from Ali, Ali offers so many with different prices, my budget under $70-$100. What I need to know? and your suggestions are welcome! Thx

Selfie stick on the end of a long pole? Make sure it has a bluetooth shutter connection :-)

https://www.airshare.co.nz/maps  - Looks like you have 3 Control Zones close/on you

 

Civil Aviation Rule Part 101 includes that you must not operate:

 

  • In a manner that creates a hazard to aircraft or to persons or property, including by dropping any object; and  
  • That creates a risk or hazard 
  • On or within 4 km of an uncontrolled aerodrome, unless the operation is undertaken in accordance with an agreement with the aerodrome operator; and
  • Over any active movement area or runway and not above 400ft AGL (above ground level) within 4km of an uncontrolled aerodrome without CAA approval and an observer on site.
  • Within 4km of any aerodrome, unless under the direct supervision of the holder of a pilot license, approved person or organisation, or instructor qualification issued by Model Flying NZ (MFNZ).
  • In a designated restricted area or military operating area, unless approval has been given by the administering authority responsible for the airspace, or within a low flying zone.
  • Beyond visual line of sight of the aircraft
  • At night unless indoors or as a "shielded operation", which means within 100m of a structure and below the top of the structure

Suggest you look at reviews on you tube. You won't get much that is decent for that money. The tello is supposed to be okay but double your budget. The spark is good with HD video and can fly quite far, but a lot more. Much of Wellington is restricted airspace airspace due to the airport

Don't go looking in the windows of any landing aircraft.

Would a recreational drone be stable enough for looking at gutters on a 2nd story roof?  I kinda thought of this as well, but didn't think they'd be stable enough unless it was absolutely still.

I'm pretty sure shielded operation does not apply if he is within an aerodrome boundary.

The advice provided below is for operations that are not shielded. Shielded operations do not need to meet conditions 1-3. 

 

 

 

https://www.airshare.co.nz/quick-reference

 

 

 

unless you meet the requirements of a shielded operation which comprise:

 

1) An operation of an aircraft within 100 m of, and below the top of, a natural or man-made object; and

 

2) Outside of the boundary of the aerodrome; and

 

3) In airspace that is physically separated from the aerodrome by a barrier that is capable of arresting the flight of the aircraft.

 

 

 

https://www.caa.govt.nz/assets/legacy/Publications/Other/Flying_with_Control.pdf

File a plan, follow the instructions and you are good to go
