If you want to take off your drone on Tenerife, you will surely bring home great pictures. Nevertheless, you should always keep an eye on the drone while flying, because a “permanent visual contact” is mandatory. The maximum altitude is 120 meters. Flights over uninhabited areas and authorized areas where model aircraft are allowed to fly, are allowed. Flying over cities and large crowds is prohibited, as well as night flights. Of course, also in the areas of airports, airfields or similar, flying is prohibited. These include small heliports such as at hospitals.
Places to visit with the drone Below I would like to recommend some places that are worth seeing. For some, you need a permission as described above. Please check this beforehand, as such rules change quickly. So the following places are recommendations, without paying attention to whether flying is allowed there, because we had a permit for our drone: – Los Gigantes – Punta de Teno – Buenavista del Norte – Pyramids of Güímar – Anaga Mountains – La Orotava – Drago Milenario
Which products can I recommend? Personally, I use the DJI Spark Combo*, because it’s just small and handy, and even if you’ve flown somewhere where it turns out to be illegal, the watchdogs, rangers, police officers usually turn a blind eye, because it seems like a toy, quite more than a Phantom 4, for example. As a second recommendation I would mention the DJI Mavic Air. It is the cheaper, lighter and better successor to the DJI Mavic Pro. You see, I’m an absolute DJI fan. And to complete the series, here’s the Osmo 2 gimbal (successor to the Osmo). If you are still unsure about flying, buy a DJI Care Refresh. This protects the damage and loss of your quadcopter. DJI has just released another drone, the Tello, which I think is more of a toy..
