Jesus crust, that thing was moving too!

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

"The surveillance drone is a sensor, not a weapon.  Please use it accordingly."

Good thing it was only a GoPro and not a 1Dx hanging from the bottom of the drone...

Being a photographer gives you the right to do THAT?! I've been missing out. I'm gonna fly something into someone on my shoot tomorrow and, if this video is any barometer for the norms of the day, I'll totally get away with it.

With the soundtrack it had a touch of "Evil Dead" about it for those brief few seconds...

They just needed to dub in flight of the valkyries.   " I love the smell blood and sweat on my remote controlled helicopter in the morning...smells like victory "
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

... You want to GO TO JAIL.

In the US, where this was taken it is ILLEGAL to fly drones for commercial purposes, UNLESS you have one of the few FAA waivers which are mainly for crops and law enforcement purposes. 

Many companies who do this type of aerial photography for real estate, etc. have been visited by the FAA and given cease and desist.

For each incident, a person faces fines from $10,000 to $100,000 (yes... $100K per incident, and 3 to 10 years in jail.

And while the jacka$$ photographer is happy with All press is good press... Getting viral coverage could cost him a whole lot more.

So I'm curious, not having done a lot (well, any) research on it, how do they classify the hobbyist RC helo's & planes that have been flying for decades? What's the difference? If it's when you go out of line of sight, sure, I can completely understand that and it makes sense. Otherwise, what's the real difference? Is it the fact that people are being paid to basically do the same thing they'd be free to do if they were just doing it for fun?
