    During my recent trip to Catania an amazing city in Sicily, Italy, I filmed my first outdoor real video at the height of 2500 meters on Mount Etna.

    Mount Etna is highest volcano in Europe with height of 3,350 m.

    Seagulls do not like Dji phantom white drones.

    Aci Trezza (Sicilian: Jaci Trizza) is a town in Sicily, southern Italy, a frazione of the comune of Aci Castello, c. 10 km north of Catania, with a population of around 5,000 people.

    The Islands of the Cyclops
    Of the coast of Aci Trezza are three tall, column-shaped islands. According to local legend, these great stones are the ones thrown at Odysseus in The Odyssey. The islands are referred to as the "isole dei ciclopi" (islands of the Cyclops, or Cyclopean Isles) by locals. This compliments the notion that the Cyclops once had a smithy below Mount Etna, which looms over the village to the northwest.

    Hi.
    I'm going to Amalfi this August and I'm planning to bring my Phantom3 for personal pictures.
    Did customs give you a hard time entering Itlay with a drone, assuming you came from another country to film your videos of Sicily.
    Thank you
    Tony

    Thank you Willi.
    That's the confirmation I was looking for.
    I was worried after reading ENAC the first time.
    But after reading ENAC again, I'm understanding that small drones are regulated under the "Model Aircraft" section of ENAC.
    I can't wait to get some beautiful Amalfi photographs.
    I will post pics.
    Tony
    ...I posted you a couple pics from my trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

    The shots look very nice.
    I am still new wtih Dji/Multikopters and afraid to fly on Urban areas. I guess it takes time and practice.

    Do you have social media/Youtube channel?
