Hi,

Going to Croatia next week - Split.
Tried to find information about drone regulations, but it's a jungle and a lot of the information is not available in English.

I found this post - and there's a lot of regulations... https://phantompilots.com/thread ... 85654/#post-1029430
I kind of gave up...
But at the end of that post, it says that there's no need for permission for drones producing less than 79 Joules(?)
According to my calculations (please correct me if I'm wrong), the Spark produces 10-11 Joules. That's way under the restricted 79+ Joules.

Reaching out to somebody who really knows the laws and regulations. I
don't want to break any laws or rules, I rather let the Spark rest at home in that case. Would be nice to bring it though.

Daviden, the sound of spark will be affected by the way you fly it. We can not provide the accurate specs of Joules it produces. I would recommend you contact the local authority for check.

Austria also has the 79 Joules-rule. It means this is the maximum of force allowed if the drone crashes to the ground. It can (roughly) be calculated with weight and height of the aircraft. For the spark it means, you are not allowed to fly higher then about 26m, not including the forward-thrust.

But much more important: local regulations are changing a lot in most countries in the last years. I would never trust an online-site or forum regarding laws. I did read one thing while reading about this topic in various blogs and forum, that I felt is the most important truth: ask your local embassy, in this case the Croatian embassy in Denmark. In this case you can be sure you got the latest information and maybe also can print that out and take it with you on your journey.

It is a Good information to discover here. Drone laws are necessary and with respect to time more Strict Drone Laws help to avoid the misuse of Drone technology.
