    This guy flew his drone over a prison and was approached by the prison guards. He asserted his rights because there presently is no NY State law prohibiting it yet, and the NY State Police let him go. Check out the news story video.

    Seems to me while NY State might not have any law, it will be interesting to see if the FAA takes issue with this operator.

    Just because there isnt a law against it- doesnt mean you should do it. Common sense. I would like to kick him in the nuts.

    I'm sure the FAA will look into the event.
