Anyone know if the SR MLE allows drones? The Conrad didn't...

They do not, but I didn't learn that until after I flew with mine :)

lol, I was wondering how you got those pics:)

It kinda makes sense not to allow them... After all privacy is definitely what people expect there.

The conrad actually kinda "searched" my luggage to find it... Wasn't too happy about that.

But thanks for the heads-up, I definitely won't be bringing mine then.

They’ll just tell you not to use it. I’ve seen employees at the SR use their own drone as well to get pics and videos so I’m sure they’re not that strict. Just depends on how much you care about possibly inconveniencing other guests.

It was in a dedicated backpack, that maybe they can tell from the outside?

Looks something like this

Issue is my phantom 3 drone  is quite beaten up. Im looking to buy a new one, but don't want to spend more than $500.

Maybe the DJI spark?
