drones, at least in Canada are even more regulated. You must fly at least 76.2m away from any building(due to privacy concerns), but have a maximum flight height of 90m. You cannot fly within 5.5km of an aerodrome and 1.8km of a heliport. If you are flying non-recreationally(would collecting orthophotos be considered non-rec.?) you need a license to operate. With the license I believe you need a 100000$ liability coverage. Where as a kite, you dont.
