Hi,

In Germany there are some rules to obey.

For all drones:
- Every drone needs to be marked (fireproof sticker) with your name and address. You can do that yourself.
- Maximum altitude is 100m above ground
- No flying in control zones or near airports
- Only fly in visual range
- No flying near main roads, hospitals, government building, people, inhabitated houses, national parks.

Additional rule for drones with a takeoff weight of 2 kg or more:
- Pilot needs to do a course and a test (forget it for foreigners)

Additional rule for drones with a takeoff weight of 5 kg or more:
- Flying only possible with a specific allowance ("Aufstiegsgenehmigung")

So if you fly a Spark or a Mavic, you're fine with just marking it.

Cheers,
Wolferl

Thank you.  Found a map of the town I plan to visit and it appears to be almost all a no fly zone

Too bad. But flying in a town or city (100m distance from houses) isn't possible anyway, unless you are flying in a park with no people. German people sometimes really call the police. It happened to me twice, but I had the necessary paperwork with me. Very different to Austria, nobody cares about illegal flying.

Cheers,

Yep, towns or all residential areas are no go.

Also near major roads, Autobahn (Highways), Railroad/ Railroad tracks, 100m distance to Hospitals (cause of the helicopters going there), Jails, Courthouse, Power planst, crowds of people (such as concerts etc), Accident sites on roads/streets... all no no. Distance to major airports is 1.5 km (about 1 mile) is needed.
