    Greetings Fellow Flyers,

    I am heading to Uganda in May to film a missionary group traveling the country. Naturally, I would really like to bring my Phantom 3 with me. However, I am reading A LOT of mixed reports about doing so. Few sites say they are banned and illegal as of Feb 2015, but I have seen a lot of recent videos taken with drones in Uganda. Only a few weeks and months ago. Really need a clear answer before committing my phantom to customs gods.

    Reason I'm leary. This February I travelled to Nicaragua and got my drone confiscated at customs for 4 days. I would really like to avoid doing that again.....

    Thanks guys!

    Just ask the embassy where you are in. They will answer you. Thanks G
