I am sure there are rules for the Drone operator, however difficult to enforce and police.

The Kite I don't believe there exist any rules to my knowledge.

Yesterday one of my friends had his kite out about 500m and a police helicopter that was doing patrol on the coast line ordered him to take it down or be jailed, they even send a vehicle to make sure he takes it down.

I have done kite fishing in the same spot with no trouble, hence my question.
Will see if I can get any info from our airport.

At 500m you are surely in the danger zone of airplanes. That’s always been illegal, the legal height used to be 120m I believe, but that has changed unless you have a license. There are strict UAV rules for drone pilots and you can google them. As long as you fly low 30-50m you should be ok for hobby use though. 500m is crazy.

rc models are regulated by SAAMA
South African Aero Modelers Association

I understand that drones are now not allowed to be flown at St Lucia due to Rhino poachers...eisch.

And the sad thing is, a guy, who sat in a wheel chair on st lucia beech, has a drone, he used it to fly out his bait.
he managed a smallish hammer head shark.

when parkies observed him fishing this way, he was stopped.
huhh? really?

wtf? he has no legs!!!

I am sure that he could get a special permit, if they refuse him, he should try other steps.

this is just pure bull ******


In any case, enforcing these laws are a problem.
