    I know I can't legally charge for video services using my phantom due to FAA and/or FCC regs.

    Is it also illegal to post your videos from the phantom on You Tube and have ads on them?

    Its a good question.

    if you don't monetise your account then who can complain if youtube places adds. If you do though and you make a lot of money then lets face it your using your phantom to drive a reward. Boy your videos are going to have to be good though :D

    very interesting question. I do know that to make any sort of money, you need to have A LOT of views. Unless you are flying over a nude beach, I'm not sure you'll get enough views to really make enough money. If for some reason the FAA did say that was wrong, the very small amount of pocket change you made wouldn't be worth the hassle you would have.
