Sunset - Costa Adeje (Non Drone)

Only an iPhone image from last night guys but thought it was worth a share from sunny Tenerife. Was going to bring the Mini but it’s far to strict here to fly and stay legal.

Lovely shot, lovely place. Seen someone flying a drone over the sea in front of beach there. Thought it a bit risky myself.

Thanks for the comments. I checked out the new regs imposed here in 2017/18 and it leaves you virtually nowhere to fly. The Adeje coastline is also used a lot by the sighting helicopter co and your supposed to seek permission of them too.

Great image but reading their Drone regs you can face a big fine if you get caught. No fly zones are all over the place including national parks too. Adeje is frequented by helicopters a lot, I’ve seen plenty over here today and that’s another reason why Adeje is on the no fly zone list. I would have loved to have brought mine over but, for me anyway, the risk is too high. Hope you enjoy your trip too.

I hear your comments on the helicopters, and know for deffo that flying in the Tiede National Park is a 6000 euro fine, but I’ve never seen evidence that Costa Adeje is in NFZ.

Hi you should check out this site for detailed maps for Tenerife. You will have to choose the recreational map then scroll over to the island and zoom in and then click the red areas for info. https://drones.enaire.es/

You will see that flight over Adeje needs permission from the helicopter company. Generally though, flights over buildings, people and beaches is forbidden.

Ok in Los Cris then ;o)

I stayed in Costa Adeje last summer with the family and agree there are a load of low flying helicopters around and a permenant nfz in place (see map already provided by @wpbooth.

I managed to get some flying in however, around the quieter parts of the island. Towards the north near Masca, we went off the beaten track a bit and took some of my favourite shots ever like the one below looking out towards La Gomera.

There is a flight advisory in the area - didn’t entirely understand it tbh as it seemed to suggest there was sensitive fauna (or maybe too many birds) and wasn’t sure if that meant a ban on drones or not - so just avoided the area to be safe.

I did also manage to fly on the edge of the National Park boundary road (see previous post) https://greyarro.ws/t/the-daily-video-thread/6523/37?u=lozzer
