I have purchased a drone with a camera from a department store. What do I have to do next? I’ve learnt how to use my drone. May I now fly it in the neighbourhood and film my house? I would like to use my drone to film nature and landscapes. Is this permitted? Am I allowed to operate my multicopter everywhere and fly it as high as I want? Video goggles are now available that enable me to directly see what my camera is recording live. Is this permitted? Am I allowed to use my autonomously flying drone in Switzerland? My brother is getting married next week: I would like to film the wedding party from above. Is this permitted? As a specialist in architecture photography, I have already been using a drone for quite some time. Am I allowed to do this without a permit from the FOCA? What happens if my multicopter crashes and causes damage, even though I have taken all necessary precautions? My drone weighs less than 500 grams. Does that mean that I can use it without any restrictions?
