Tesla has banned drone flights over its Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg site, as identified on Monday by drone videography account @WolfpackBerlin.
The account says that Tesla specifically informed them that flights over the plant are forbidden, and can only be allowed once per quarter down the road.
The practice has been common from groups like WolfpackBerlin and Tobias Lindh since Tesla began constructing the Grünheide, Germany plant, showing up-close shots of recent developments at the positioning because it went from being built to producing cars.
Lindh corroborated what WorldpackBerlin said, noting drone flights “should not allowed on every weekend anymore.” Nevertheless, Lindh says he’ll “proceed my weekly time-lapse videos from outside and take into consideration what other form of videos I could make about #GigaBerlin.”
The drone pilot added he hopes to have the option to film again when phase 2 of Giga Berlin begins. As for why the drone flights have been banned? Lindh replied, “safety” when someone asked.
It’s true. Drone flights above #GigaBerlin should not allowed on every weekend anymore.
I’ll proceed my weekly time-lapse videos from outside and take into consideration what other form of videos I could make about #GigaBerlin.

Drone pilots can still film Giga Berlin from beyond the bounds of Tesla’s grounds, but they can’t physically enter the airspace above the factory.
WolfpackBerlin spotted Tesla’s Model Y within the abyss blue multicoat at Giga Berlin just a number of weeks ago.
Tesla reached a production goal of three,000 Model Y builds per week at Giga Berlin in December, after the plant only began substantial production last summer.
Drones are still capable of be used at Tesla’s U.S. Gigafactories, and one user within the Twitter thread points out that airspace isn’t controlled by property owners within the automaker’s headquartering country.
Tesla’s sales in Germany jumped 912 percent yr over yr in January, and the corporate remains to be ramping up production on the Grünheide plant.
