I'm am currently looking to close the loop on actual transparent (local and federal) regulations on sUAS/drone operations.  Being that the sUAS/drone recreational and commerical industry has increased significantly over the past few years, overall law enforcement and cultural mindset has not caught up as of yet, hence why drones are easily made out to be the current 'boogey man' and seemingly a larger threat than illegal handguns.
Here in NYC, there seems to be conflicting regulations and the local authorities fan the flames of fear onto the unknowing public.  What are your experiences in your areas?

Hi, there Neo Supreme. Thank you for sharing this pool to us and hope that you could get the best recommendation and suggestions from our valued DJI co-pilots. In addition, we highly recommend contacting the local authorities for us to know the specific laws and regulation of the particular location and we need to follow the rules on the said location for us not having any troubles in the future. Thank you for your kind and understanding and thank you for your continued support

I was expecting much more input than this.  So going from many other threads and posts, I take it that other sUAS operators 'wing it' when it comes to regulations?

I've asked local law enforcement what are the rules and regulations that we have locally. We also have a few commercial drone pilots in the area as well as a bunch of hobbyist pilots. I try and talk with them and read a lot so I can try and stay within the rules.

I appreciate the response.  Sometimes I just want to fly without local restrictions for some really nice shots.  I do however, want to be in the right, just in case someone wants to approach me about flying.  Being armed with knowledge, regulations PLUS the part 107 is super valuable.

    Is a big Yes from me,
  the place where I live "Macao”, surrounded by 2 international airports plus heliports and their NFZ literary covers almost entirely all city territory which is about 10.89 sq miles. (rest of the area is open ocean and boundary with Mainland China).
  So even if I want to fly in my kitchen, I should apply permit (I am not joking)
  Yes, can also apply self-unlocking on DJI website,  which I still need to inform the airport authorities about my  planned fly in case my drone may crash a plane passing over my kitchen bench.
  I should probably move somewhere in the middle of Sahara Desert.

I just checked Macao/Macau out on the map.  That looks/sounds like a great place for some fantastic aerial footage, too bad that they are so restrictive.  I thought NYC was bad, but it sounds pale in comparison with your location.
