    So being the paranoid person I am I called the sheriffs department thinking to myself "hey if anyone knows where it's safe and legal to fly it's the cops".

    So I called and said I just purchased a new R/C Aircraft and wanted to know if they knew which places were legal and safe to fly in. (Lots of parks I. Lakeland)

    He wasn't sure but apparently one of the other deputies has a quadcopter he flies out in a place in mulberry and said he never gets hassled. So I'm gonna go check it out tomorrow.

    He did say he appreciated the call as this was the first time anyone ever called the station to ask about safe places to legally fly a "drone" (his words) before. So if your unsure where you can and can't go give your local sheriff or police department a call they probably know.
