    Haha! I was literally looking up information on that today. I plan to check it out tomorrow. I assume with balloons in the air the FAA's stinky hands aren't regulating here. Let me know if you are successful.

    Well so far I have to deal with a cell tower with buzzards over it. maybe they're there to gobble up my drone. and then it's on the edge of a no-fly zone. real winner.

    Ok, I walk to a neighborhood that borders the park. I hear the sound of a phantom and thought, gonna have a great time.
    Was upset at how dude was flying it though. Way too close to the balloon area and he was hiding in the woods. I should have known.
    I posted up about 200 ft near fields edge, great angle. Saw weak transmission and knew what was up. Aiming at my bird with signal jammers. Turned and landed as they broke thru the woods. I did get 2:47 of footage
    I let them know who I was and let them know I knew the rules. No since in arguing so parked the bird and went in with cameras. Will post flight soon.
