    I hadn't realized until the other day, a new City ordinance went into effect in December that prohibits night flying of drones.

    I don't intend to be the test case for this, but does anybody think this will be enforceable? I mean night flying on a certain level is safer insofar as LOS, because of the lights.

    Sucks because there are such pretty shots to be had at night.

    You turn off or tape off the lights. Hard to spot in the darkness.

    Do you have a map of this restriction? Is it just downtown LA. I haven't ever gone up at night, but I have some shots that I would like that allow me to rationalize using the term HOVER, not flying.

    AFAIK it's the whole Los Angeles City limits for all the new regs.

    Luckily it is not the whole LA county.
