It was an interesting operation with Lean2Rescue at Indian Lake recently. The lake itself allows motors, but the adjacent wilderness does not. So we were allowed to use a chainsaw to cut logs and lumber on the sandy beach at the high water level, but could not run it at the nearby leanto location 200 feet away into the woods. A drone would not legally be allowed there either.
