When it comes to flying a drone, there’s a few things you need to be acutely aware of. First priority is your legal requirements, but second is planning.

What a Wander in Mornington Peninsula!

Phú Quốc is about 40 minutes by air from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and is a small island about 50Kms tall, and 25Kms wide. The main town of Phú Quốc is Dương Đông, and I had the pleasure of spending a couple days here to see out the end of 2014.
