Top of the Range Drone

Back in early 2018 it became necessary for drone owners in Thailand to get a permit for their use. These permits would be issued at local police stations.

The penalty for flying a drone without a permit was set at a fine of 10,000 Baht and or 5 years in jail. Since then there have been upwards 0f 7000 applications for drone permits.

I would think that the administrative burden on the permit issuers is immense and that has caused the authorities to rethink the rules.

To that end it has been announced that the rules will be relaxed by the end of 2019 and that permits will not be required to fly drones in certain areas.

They go on to say the rules will become more in line with International regulations.

We will wait with baited breath. I have wanted a drone for months but have been put off by the permit requirement and the price of a decent drone. I saw only yesterday top of the range drones being sold in Central Plaza in Chiang Rai at between 28,000 and 45,000 Baht! I thought I was seeing things but after putting my reading glasses on I realised I wasn't.
