    Hi Omar,

    It is prohibited in Egypt don't even think to take it with you. They consider it spying crime.

    Currently its only allowed in Kuwait and UAE.

    good luck

    I don't know about sharm but it doesn't worth to take any risk.

    I know a journalist who got arrested for a 10 dollars helicopter toy in Cairo airport

    IMHO we shouldn't fly over some historical monuments (including sightseers) which we cannot take responsibility if UAV drops on it (however solid pyramids are :) ). Once declare and allowed, then they would have route for ad damnum, also they should allow us to go recovering broken birds & SD.
    BTW comparing to these monuments, US national park seems to be much less to be harmed in case...

    It is Egypt! No one cares about pyramids except tourists. Just make yourself a PRESS ID and doors will be opened everywhere. I wear it all the time while flying and also I wear a very serious face )))

    Everything will be fine. Keep us posted

    Careful there man.. If you want to share truths in the US that can land you in a lot of trouble being the truth is highly frowned on. Considering that in the empire of lies. Truth is considered the enemy.

    You definitely want to have a local with you. Some random tourist with a flying camera isn't going to go well without someone to claim you.
