Being a new drone pilot this is a great app to have tp ensure I'm within the rules and regulations. However it becomes a little fizzy when determining exactly how far away I am from a no fly zone. The Orange zones are a little bland in their explanation at times and only imply if I'm within 5.5km of an area I can't fly there. It would be good if it determined my distance and just said yes or no, otherwise provide a measurement system so I can work it out for myself. I could use Google maps but that is not a direct line distance and rather via streets so it's useless. Would give 5 stars once this is more refined for new users such as myself.
Great app. Works extremely well and very quick to work out my location. Its great to actually find an app that tells you what you want to know, when so many websites have been completely useless.
Very good app
Fantastic! Correctly shows the no fly zones for uncontrolled aerodromes and heliports.... One star lost for the slightly confusing manual placement of the "pin", and the random delay when doing so. This problem makes it slightly confusing and frustrating at times. Otherwise, great app - well done CASA.
Short and simple. Does the job well. Thanks for making the rules simple to understand. I'd like to stop having to accept the terms and conditions every time I launch the app although it's not a big deal.
Good but can an upgrade be added to include the no-fly national park rules? Be good if that is identified, or alteadt dome sort of warning circle to indicate permission from park management is required before launching.
Now includes fire and emergency operations for all Australian states and territories (except for the Northern Territory).
Clarified rules for recreational drone flyers.
Missing airports added (Geraldton and West Wyalong)
