It's ok but I bought this to do some flying indoors so I'll need to do some more testing to figure it out.

Here is footage from Drone Iginla's first flight.

I believe there is an indoor setting that caps the drone speed at 3mph or 3 kmh

It is a great hobby but I was flying one day and realized I just didn't have time for flying and with the new regulations coming out I ended up trading my drone for a really nice gaming laptop

Yeah it's called tripod mode. However when your navigation isn't working because of the interference, the tripod mode isn't made available.

Are the new drone regulations as strict as they appear? Seems a little open to intpretation, but if taken strictly, where could you even fly them?

Yep they sure are. They really need to clarify some of the points, namely no flying within 75m of animals. Vague rule to say the least. It's an interim order, hopefully whatever the finalize in June will have much better wording. And I really hope they increase the weight limit these rules apply to. 250g is too low.

More discussion on it in this thread:
