    Thanks! Wasn't too scary at the time - roller coaster at Belmont actually isn't all that high so I had good visual at all times

    while its cool, i generally practice safer flights when it comes to public locations.

    Like avoid going over traffic (and rollercoasters?)
    The slightest glitch, gust of wind, etc can make any drone lose control.

    Call me overly cautious, but thats just me.

    We all have limits some of us just are a bit more braver then others

    I would only attempt that if there was no wind at all but then again I would be watching my back as it would be about my luck a cop would show up

    Here in the netherlands, a guy is arrested after flying above a theme park.
