The Do’s and Don’ts of Drones in the Adirondacks #drone #droneday
The Adirondack Mountains are in upstate New York – think Lake George, Lake Placid and Lake Tear of the Clouds. The region is dramatic. At the end of each twist and turn in the road it feels like you’ve entered a magical land that is stunning in every season. With the dynamic landscape it comes as no surprise that folks would want to visit and fly their drones. Megan Plete Postol put together the do’s and don’ts of drones for folks to read before flying in the Adirondacks for Adirondack Explorer:
Flying a drone in the Adirondacks – what is okay and what is not? Many people, locals and visitors alike struggle to answer this question. Flying a drone is illegal in many parts of the Adirondacks, but not all. Let’s break it down.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
