    Great pictures, Richard. It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the floating market at Tha Kha. When my brother in law first took me there ( more than 10 years ago), I was the only “farang”. If you weren’t there before 9 am the place was empty. Boy, how things change. I too have a Phantom and am contemplating taking it with me to Thailand from the US next month. Are the rules changing as to where you can fly it?

    I’m going to be in Phuket in a week.
    Will I have issues flying. I’m seeing that the rules are saying 40 days jail time ? I wanted to take it some islands around there.. Will I really be stopped?

      If it’s a hobby and your drone is less than two kilos then you don’t need a license. But you cannot fly near building or structures or populated areas.
