Can I fly my drone in Indonesia?

When we mention Indonesia, we are also referring to Bali, which happens to be part of the group of islands. As long as you avoid any sacred places such as mosques or temples, there shouldn’t be any trouble as you go about your business. Sometimes it’s better to play it safe than sorry. Take time to read through this article, you might find out a thing or two.

Where can I fly my drone in Indonesia?

The Indonesian government has earmarked several fly zones where one can or cannot fly their drones. They are:

  • Government aviation designated areas 
  • 15 Km from an airport or runway – higher than 150 m altitude
  • Controlled airspaces


To fly a drone weighing between 2 and 25 Kg, you must be 20 years of age.

All the rules that apply to the recreational drones apply here, as well as:

  • Drone activities must be covered by insurance
  • Need authorization from DGCA

What are my top drones to fly safely in Finland?

My following two recommendations are 2 great compact drones that are quite silent and also small enough to travel with and not stand out as annoying.

1.Dji Mavic Mini - The best international travel drone (under 250g)


30min battery


No follow me

DJI has surprised us with this incredible camera drone under 250g, which is half of the weight required for registering in the first place.


I have covered it much more in depth in my article review and even compared it with the DJI Spark and Mavic Air.


  • 30 min battery life
  • under 250g
  • super portable
  • 4km range
  • can edit videos in the app


  • no obstacle avoidance
  • no settings for iso and shutter speed

2.Dji Mavic Air 2 - My favorite drone overall

4k 60fps

34min battery


Follow + obstacle avoidance

If you want more control over things like shutter speed, iso and such, the best professional drone that still falls under the 500g category is the DJI Mavic Air.
It's made mostly for people who want to play around with settings and enter into the pro category.


DJI lowered it's price since it was first released.


  • 3 way sensors
  • 68kph (fastest among the 3)
  • follow me mode(quite a few options)
  • 8gb internal storage
  • ISo & shutter speed settings
  • 6 photo modes
  • takes RAW photos
  • 100mbps bitrate


  • battery life ins't that amazing

Restricted Areas and Geofencing (drone FLying map)

The best way to figure out what areas you can fly in, while you're here is by consulting DJI offilicial map.
They do a great job mapping the places that one should avoid while flying in every country:

  • airports
  • military bases
  • prisons
  • power plants
  • any high risk areas
