Are these banned in Thailand or not?
If you can't fly them over pubic areas, there goes my plans for some new movies...
No as best I can work out they have not been.. They said they were going to.. And it got discussed.. And then went quiet.. Tho if you started filming government at work (cops / army / etc) I bet you would still get detained.. Theres still a huge DJI dealer selling them like hotcakes in bangkok.
The issue is, and this is the same worldwide, its very hard to define 'drone' from RC aircraft these days.. Because ultimately the autonomous bit isnt what freaks the privacy side out, its the camera bit, and all manner of normal RC planes and helis carry a camera gimball now. Its very hard to ban 'drones' without banning all RC flying. Most sane countries have introduced rules like a height ceiling, line of sight to aircraft, a max bodyweight for airframe, and no flying over pubic / populated areas..
Carry a spare battery and charge whilst riding the bike. Well that's the plan once I finally get my hands on the Airdog!

Still not delivered, new USA FAA rules:
Last week, the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published new small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) operation rules for commercial aircrafts weighing less than 55 pounds. They will take effect August 2016. We want to assure you that none of these new federal rules apply to Lily customers operating the Lily Camera for recreational use, or Lily Camera customers located outside of the U.S.
These new rules require all routine commercial small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle operators in the U.S. to have a remote pilot certificate with an sUAS rating or be directly supervised by someone with such a certificate. The operator must also be at least 16 years of age.
TL;DR: If you're planning to capture non-commercial content with your Lily Camera and you've registered with the FAA, you're good. We will do our very best to keep you in the loop on future FAA changes as guidelines evolve.
Phil, I've been fooling around with the DJI P3 for a year now. Based on my limited experience, I was a little sceptical about the Lily, which seems like a very ambitious call after seeing their claims of what it can do, given the intricacies of producing a drone like the P3.
Especially at the price they plan to sell it for. I am not at all surprised if their delivery time slips even further.
A light, robust, waterproof autonomous Drone with multi-axis gimbal that works as advertised in their advert is a dream machine, and may remain a dream machine for a long time.
The DJI guys seems like they are far ahead, and if a little start-up can make the Lily, it's inconceivable the DJI guys cannot match the Lily with the current resources and RnD at hand.
Nevertheless, if the Lily does indeed work as advertised, I will join you in a heartbeat.
