    But that means commercial use is legal. That sounds like great news to me! If only we had this in the US!

    non recreative UAV owners is me, and anyone else flying strictly for recreation and hobby. Exempted. Looks like they're going after the commercial users.

    Sorry, my mistake, was in shock, just re-read article, seems regulations and license apply for all kind of UAV so far, when this gets clearer will update info.

    I would even venture to say Costa Rica is far ahead of many other countries, including the U.S. on this. Kudos!

    welcome to latin america.

    in mexico its the same.

    if your drone is less than 2.5kg you cant fly:
    9.2 km from an airport
    900 meters from an heliport
    at night
    but as long as you have an insurance policy you are free to use your drone for commercial use :)

    Fedevision, would like to consult with you and other CR users, is there a group? I speak Spanish fluently.
