No flying of our multicopters within 5km of aerodomes. Here, plotted are airports in Singapore and surrounding island (yes, there’s one)
If you stay in the East part of Singapore and you follow the law to the word, you actually can’t fly from within Amk Ave 3 to tampines road to eunos link, bedok reservoir to loyang Ave and the whole of Pasir Ris town.
This does not include the restricted areas yet like army camps, army training areas which is pretty much the whole of North-West Singapore, bridges, over people and danger zone as stipulated in the Bill introduced in #Parliament.
Let’s go Malaysia….

Or wanna plot your own? Go here. We can’t believe such a simple function (draw 5 km around a point) is not available on the official Google Maps.
Number One should be common sense but then that can’t be put into law…
With the amendments, the enhanced regulatory framework will:
- Prohibit the carriage of dangerous materials by unmanned aircraft, such as weapons, and any bio-chemical or radioactive material
- Prohibit the discharge of any substance from unmanned aircraft without a permit
- Require operators to obtain a permit to fly or operate an unmanned aircraft that weighs more than 7kg in total weight
- Provide for the gazetting of security-sensitive locations as “protected areas,” where overflying by unmanned aircraft or taking of photographs from unmanned aircraft are prohibited without a permit
- Prohibit the overflight of unmanned aircraft over “special event areas” declared for the venues of major events without a permit (for example, certain venues of the Southeast Asian Games 2015)
- Require operators to obtain a permit to fly or operate an unmanned aircraft within 5km of an aerodrome regardless of height, or above 200 feet beyond 5km of an aerodrome, or within a restricted or danger area
The place where only recently, a uncle got charge for chopping another uncle cos he hears his “voices” in his head. It’s also the place that is being closed down and is a great place to do some urban shots of these flats. People have generally moved out but mind the cars owners who are enjoying some free parking there. Once people figure out what we were doing, some curious joggers came by to say hello.

SINGAPORE – There will be restrictions on the flying of unmanned aircraft when the Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix rolls into town later this week, the civil aviation regulator said on Tuesday.
This is to ensure they do not get in the way of low-level helicopter flights conducting aerial filming during the race.
The restrictions will cover a significant area around the race site including Queenstown, Telok Blangah, Toa Payoh, Kallang, Orchard, Marine Parade and Aljunied.
The islands of Sentosa and Brani will also be off-limits, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

Whatever you call it. Here’s the videos from a few hours ago’s parade. Singapore just celebrated it’s 49th National Day.
Singapore National Day Parade (9th August 2014) – Fireworks Part 1. I got myself in abit of trouble for this ?, because I already thought I was far enough from the security perimeter… But fortunately I was cleared of malicious intent! Come on, who doesn't love fireworks? Happy Birthday Singapore! #dji #phantom #djiphantom #drone #aerial #aerialphoto #aerialphotography #aerialcinematography #gopro #uav #singapore #ndp2014 #ndp #fireworks
We’re really just pushing the authorities to legislate our hobby…it’s a matter of not how but when. We wouldn’t want something to fall out of the skies or colliding with real planes/ helis at some major events like this and killing somebody or somebodies.
We hope to see more of such cool videos but want everyone to be safe but worry too on the other hand, at any major events in the future, the skies lit up with dozen or more drones all shooting videos/ photos taking over photographers with tripods and their DSLR?
Happy Birthday Singapore. Legislate but we hope the law will make sense.
