Is it legal to fly a drone in Maui? What are the FAA and state drone laws in Hawaii? What are some of the challenges of flying a UAV there?

Over the course of a week-long vacation in Maui, I flew my DJI Phantom 4 Pro and my DJI Mavic Air in various places around the island. This video covers some tips and tricks for flying your drone on the Hawaiian Islands – a place where unexpected climate changes can cause some challenges! Wind, helicopters and rain storms are just some of the things you need to watch out for.
Thanks for watching!
