    Hello Kiki! Great post and insight! Lots of awesome information! Just curious… what happened after they confiscated your drone? Did you get it back once you left the country? Thank you!

      So in Egypt, they held me for questioning for about 5 hours when I arrived, kept the drone, and I’m one of the only people I know who actually got my drone back. And it’s because I went 10 hours before my flight, had my local guide come with me to speak to the police and then I sat for 8 hours in questioning and barely made my flight. They only gave it back to me because I had a local guide who somehow knew the police officer. They don’t really ever plan on getting it back to you. I 100000% would NOT recommend doing this or testing if you can get away with bringing a drone somewhere where it’s not legal because you’ll likely get it confiscated, spend time in questioning and that money and time will just have gone down the drain.

      In Belize, they confiscated it when I arrived and I got it back on my way out — that was a lot easier than Egypt but this was YEARS ago. So I’m not sure what the situation is like now. I would absolutely not bring it through Egypt.

    Thanks for mentioning the DroneMate App! I will definitely use that in the future, especially when I get into FPV drone flying. Beautiful pictures, btw!
