    Thinking about taking a gig in the Bahamas. Doing some research now but was hoping someone already flies there and can give me some inside tips or point me in the right direction.

    Hello am from the Bahamas and sadly customs will not allow you to bring your bird in the country. Our drone laws Are very strict. The only way you can bring your bird in the country is if you apply to the CAD for a temporary pass which I doubt would be approved and it will take forever. Or you can contact a local that already has a bird registered on the island to do the job for you.

    I read somewhere they can let you bring it in but charge you a 70% duty fee? Thats just crazy! Im going to call the Ministry of transportation tomorrow to see if there is anything I can do.

    Are you currently in the bahamas and have a inspire?
