Hi Studiodp, I'm not from Malaysia (I'm from South Africa) I'll be visiting KL next month on vacation and wanted to find out if there are any security/public issues with flying drones? I've read up the regulations and they seem to be similar to the laws we have in my country. I'll by flying privately, and as far as I understand it, I don't need to have a license?

Hi JLP
Currently you no need to have a pilot license to operate your drone in Malaysia. You only need to follow our rules and regulations implemented by our DCA (Similar to US's FAA).
As a tourists you no need to register with DCA Malaysia in order to shot aerial video unless you are doing commercially.

Can you confirm this? I had a friend whose P3 was turned back at the Causeway. The customs officials almost confiscated the drone. He was detained for questioning?

it's depends on your luck. there is no written regulation that you can not bring in drone to malaysia. all depends on custom officer.

I like your name and avatar Mike-the-cat, I am sure there is a reg of some sort, however as the op posted all is open to interpretation of the individual you are dealing with (agent, officer etc..)  I am not from Malaysia but have done businesses with and in the country on occasion.

hi,

Anyone got their mavic pro and experiencing the blurry or washed out image or video footage on the right side or left side?

I suggest all you mavic pro users to check your photos and video footage that you've taken and check whether there are any blurs or washed out effect.
Do share.

Cheers

We will be heading to Malaysia from next week on visiting some cities and islands. Can I fly my DJI Mavic without registration? Can I get problems at the airport security checks? I don't want my drone to get confiscated.

I would be very thankful for any advice. Thanks

Hi guys,

I am traveling through South-East-Asia at the moment and would like to buy a Mavic s in either Malaysia and Singapore - due to the relatively low price - at least in comparison to Europe. However, I am not sure how it works with warranty then. I heard that it is only valid in the country where the drone was bought. How long does it last in Malaysia and Singapor and where do I have to send the drone if it breaks? To the reseller I bought it from or to a centralized repair factory of DJI in Malaysia and Singapore, respectively.

Thank you.

You can fly your drone without registering. Security shouldn't be an issue as well. Just ensure you keep the battery separate and in your hand carry. I took my Phantom 3 from KL to Indonesia and didn't have an issue both ways.

As long as u fly your UAV in malaysia public u need to apply a drone permit from DCA (Department of Civil Aviation Malaysia), If you fly above 100ft or 33meter u need to have our JUPEM and OCSA approval letter. Doesn't matter is hobby or working.

My advise is launch your drone on roof and avoid the public. Ignore and fly!

I thought the permit is only compulsory for drones weighing over 20 kg?
