Anyone has experience in flying drones in Dubai?
I plan a trip to Dubai and was thinking of taking my Solo with me. I read some of the local regulations in Dubai and was surprised that they require the pilot to be registered in CAA, otherwise there is a penalty (imprisonment one to three years in jail) in addition to the fine.
As I would be in Dubai for less than a week, I suppose that I would not have the necessary time to register my Solo.
I do not want to miss the opportunity to take some awesome videos and pictures, but on the other hand I would not like to break the local regulations.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Just fly it anyways! YOLO. ;)
I respectfully disagree with mattshup. Local regulations should always be known and adhered to in any country you fly in. A lot of countries won't hesitate to sock it to an American not following their rules and regs. You may get away with "just flying it anyway", but are you prepared for the consequences of possibly not getting away with it? Not worth the risk to me.......Just my opinion. Good luck.
