Best Spots in the Heartlands to Fly Your Drone (Part 1)

If you have ever flown a drone in Singapore, you would know that the regulations here are super strict. Most areas are restricted, or require a permit to fly over. But lucky for you, we have scouted the most photogenic heartland spots to do drone photography. Guess what is the best part? It is free and legal.

1. Fajar Hills – Fajar Road

One of the things to look out for when taking drone photos is patterns. The roads and pathways often intersect in interesting ways that will make your drone shot ‘Hypebeast-worthy’. For example, this photo works because of the semi-circle formed by the road surrounding the project.

Landscaped roof gardens also turn out great in drone photos.

2. Segar Grove – Segar Road

The lush greenery at Segar Grove covered most of the pathways in the project, so I decided to take a photo from an angle rather than the typical top-down perspective. It looked pretty cool too!

3. Casa Clementi – Clementi Avenue 1

Casa Clementi is the largest HDB project I came across … which is awesome because it means there are a million possible angles to shoot from. There is a playground, fitness corner, a 660m jogging track – everything you can imagine!

Another tip is that flying at a higher altitude does not necessarily translate into a nicer shot. Sometimes it might be better to zoom into a unique pattern, so that you retain the focus of the photo.
