Hi All,

Just curious to know if anybody has a drone and if so, good places to take them in the Paralimni area?

I have a Phantom 3 and just want to get some good shots.

Thanks
Henry

This won't be of much help I suspect.

I do recall that some time ago on here there was a discussion about this.

If I recollect right there are some quite draconian rules about drones in Cyprus. Particularly anywhere at all near airports (of course) but also wrt privacy matters.

Maybe somebody who knows more about the search facility can help you out with that one.

Airports are a worldwide no no. The phantom if on the correct software has a system to block flight in the no fly zones.

Also in cy stay away from Military areas.
A mate had some issues fly near the monastery just outside of larnaca.

Hi Henry - welcome to the forum and thanks for joining up - hope you
find it helpful!

It's been one of them days today so a little late in replying - whilst I
don't imagine that many permits are applied for you are meant to
have one to fly in urban areas. See here: Permit needed to fly a drone

I used to fly a little drone a few years back in Vrysoulles but usually just
went to a nearby field. That said I seemed to have the knack with the
two I had of flying them right in to the ground Crying or Very sad

These days the drones are better but lack of time means that whilst
I run a drone website I haven't flown one in while.

Cheers

Steve

Many thanks for the responses.

As "carts320" said, my Phantom has software on it which wont let me fly near airports or arm base's. I have got some good footage from Ayia Napa Bay and some of the beaches around there but just wondered if there is anywhere else which is good?

I am gong to take it to Fig tree bay some time this week as I have heard by loads of people its nice there.

I have only just moved to Paralimni so still getting used to the area Smile

Thanks again,

Henry

newto, there are great shots to be had from the coast, from firemans beach to potamas, but please, do not do what many videographers do and cut it short. i enjoy watching the whole journey, i would like to see the drone cutting over the surf into caves,then moving slowly to the next point of interest.too many drone videographers seem to be all over the place and too erratic to be interesting.

There's a cracker on YouTube taken over Ayios Elias and the surrounding area last summer. Well worth a view.

I will try. It was shared off my Facebook News feed months ago though. It may take a while.

It might even have appeared on the Forum then. I can't recall TBH.
