    Canada has said we'll need to be licensed & insured but has been flip flopping on that. We were supposed to have the new laws for everything R/C related in the spring but they still haven't brought them in. I know some of the people involved on the MAAC side of the negotiations but they aren't sharing any of the news until it all gets finalized. I"m fully involved with the R/C side of things that fly & shoot most of the events for our zone plus a couple of jet events in another zone. I also have a DJI Drone but haven't had the time to fly it. I do fly fixed wing & intend to learn heli's too & can fly them OK on the sim. Crashing the sim is cheap though but heli's get expensive when you screw up. MAAC has welcomed the FPV drone racing community with open arms & they seem happy to be a part of MAAC.

    Tighter rules on drones coming but non-Mexicans need not apply

    This article says that only citizens need to register. Any thoughts? I wonder what I would need to bring with my drone to show to the police that a non-national is exempt.

    That particular article relates to drones over 25 Kilos (55 pounds) which in general most consider will be for commercial use. Until you get someone to translate the actual laws relating to use of the smaller ones PLUS where they can't be flown in Cozumel by current law you're taking a risk flying it there but it's doubtful that if used responsibly you'd get in trouble but that's just a guess. I'm up to date on Canadian regs & a bit behind on the newest US regs but without a good translater Mexican rules & regs are beyond understanding how or where they are applied.
