I just returned from a shoot near Douglas, AZ and Agua Prieta, MX. Dove into the laws ans for this particular shoot was able to fly without issue. The nearest airport was in glass G, we had the cooperation of border patrol and the mayor of each city. This was a very particular shoot for an art project from the UK. Everyone was very helpful. I have a shoot coming up south of Rosarito, MX. I do think it will go as smooth.
More concerned about bringing all my equipment across border line and being hit with a VAT tax like I have heard. After speaking with border patrol, thye said it was unlikely in the area I was in near Douglas, but you could stumble into someone who will have a bad day. Advise I was told, bring your receipts and be prepared to show documentation of purchase in the US. Other pilots have advised me to only fly what you are willing to loose.
Any feedback on going in and out of Mexico with a whole kit would be helpful. Thanks-
