    Hello,

    I go to germany in a few weeks and i'm thinking to bring my drone with me.
    What are the laws at the moment in germany? Can i fly it?

    I know this is asked before but this was last year. Is there anything changed?

    Thank you for reading!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Phantom Pilots forum. I hope that you will take advantage of the benefits that come with membership and that you will be able to use the forum for the exchange of innovative ideas and as a resource for current developments in Phantom quadcopter’s.

    Germany
    Regulations: Germany prohibits UAV operation out of the operator's line of sight and devices over 25 kg. Companies flying drones commercially that weigh over 5 kg must apply for a flight permit from the relevant state authority, and must show proof of insurance. UAVs cannot fly within 1.5 km of airports, within a no-fly zone over the government district in Berlin, and over military bases and nuclear power plants in some states.
