I have done a lot of web searching to see how much of a problem it would be to take my Mavic Pro into Germany. Not much either way. Nothing really definitive. I have traveled there many times, but never with a drone. Can anyone give me some help. I sure don't want to have to pay any taxes entering or leaving. Do you need sales receipts?

I have read that information. My concern is taking the drone into Germany and then returning with it. Has anyone flown through Frankfurt lately with a Mavic?

Thank you for your response.

Went into Düsseldorf and out of Amsterdam last summer with no problem what so ever. Make sure you have a metal engraved I.D. Registration placed on the exterior of your aircraft.

I have a printed black letter on white p-touch label on the exterior of my Mavic. It has the commercial aircraft # on it. I have never heard of metal engraved ID registrations.

I've heard of a few countries requiring this "Metal" plate. I don't have any sources to link from but I've read it several times as of recent.

I am working on getting a couple made for me. In conversations with Etsy.com at the moment. I will probably get a couple made up. I got a price of $8.24 for 4ea plus $2.99 shipping. I went ahead and ordered. I will report on the product when I receive it.

It’s a fact. Has to be fireproof. You must have insurance as well. Doesn’t state you have to have proof of insurance but when flying in a foreign country it’s better to have everything in order. Specific rules about flying with audio/visual equipment and language about flying over private property and having to have consent from property occupant.
