No drones in Cuba it seems.

Also no walkie talkies or GPS equipment.

Are you going to be allowed to go to Cuba?

What exemption are you traveling under or are you going through another country first?
Curious how Americans go to Cuba. Many fly here and then go down. Still not legal but not likely to get caught either.  Suck if the plane had to land in the US though ;-)

No longer.  The US and Cuba are normalizing relationship.....slowly and are now allowing travel.  We're going to do a rare (for us) tour to learn more before we travel there on our own.  Both have opened embassies as of last week in the other's country.

I know all that. The thing is, travel for plain old tourism was still not allowed on the treasury website when I just looked.  Travellers still had to qualify under one of the 12 sections but dont need an actual permit. Not sure about a visa.

Are gou going on a tour operated by an authorized operator? If so, that is a different deal. I meant booking your own holiday.

You are lucky ! I on the other hand had enough to buy a phantom and then drive to my vacation location if i had the money, maybe if i get to win the lottery ill be able to manage to visit some distant places, meanwhile i do by exploring whats in my reach, not everyone is equal and everyone should be content with what god gave them.

We are going on a tour.  Hopefully we'll get to go back and visit on our own.  Looking forward to it.  Everyone should travel outside their comfort zone.  Glad to see you enjoyed it.  Hopefully they'll allow quadcopter eventually.
