Chestertown, MD is listed on more than one website as one of the cuttest little towns in Maryland that you should definitely visit when in the area. For a reason! The waterfront is beautiful and there’s more than a few restaurants that offer delicious dinner options. Wikipedia tells us that in the mid-eighteenth century, Chestertown trailed onlyAnnapolis and was considered Maryland’s second leading port. For the purpose of this particular website I advise going all the way to the waterfront and of course keeping your drone over water when you fly. It both gives you the best view of the town and ensures safety of people who might be visiting this popular spot. We stopped by at sunset time and as you can see in the photo above the sun sets directly behind the city (in April at least) so I would be curious to see the sunrise and whenever I have time I am definitely returning!
Another huge plus for drone operators: this area is far from any commercial or recreational airports so you don’t have to notify any flight control towers about your drone in the air provided that you of course stay under 400ft. Quite honestly there is no need to go higher in this area. All the good angles are easily created from around 200ft.
As always, please make SAFETY your #1 priority and be respectful of wildlife and other human beings in your immediate area when you fly!
