15 August, 2016 - Galop Canal East Entrance.

One of our favourite place to fly from has been the south side of the old Galop Canal near the down river entrance. However, last week my DJI Phantom 3 Professional refused to takeoff from this location because of an "Authorization Zone" error. After some Internet research, I was able to find this map - with Iroquois now designated as an "Authorization Zone" (the orange circle around the air strip). I discovered that I can get authorization for my drone to fly in this area - but only three days at a time.

These pictures & video are the result of trying it out.
