Not sure where to post this story, for those who overland around the world learn the laws of that country. This unfortunate couple found themselves jailed in Iran for flying a drone and their well fair is unknown.This story comes from another site I belong to.

If this isn't the proper forum move it.

Ignorance never pays on long run.
For those who travel in Europe - observe the "no walk on grass" laws.

This should hold true even when traveling in the US. Ignorance is not a defense.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Unfortunately it seems some bravado, naivety and possibly a dose of entitlement has landed these two in one of the most horrific prisons of the world. Reading of the conditions in this prison should give anyone pause to conclude that any human deserves conditions like this for any crime. They are simply political chess pieces at this point and hopefully something will be worked out or their future is ghastly.

In US depending on who your are, and the crime you are committing, ignorance can be a defense. And we have all seen it. And many accept the statement "I will do it again."

Yes, money is power alright. Common sense, AA IQ and education, good looks, plus money and good luck, THAT'S the winning combination.

If drones have been used to spy on you buy a country that has tried to dominate you for decades, is engaged in a act of war against you, citizens of a ally of that country flying drones would be suspect.

I sold my drone after seeing some people get all bent out of shape over them so who in their right mind would want to take a drone to Iran and fly it. And I only flew my drone straight up over my backyard except one time for flying near a fire with the permission of the NJ State Police.
