    Hello to all. First time poster, long time forum stalker :) So my wife and son go to Albertsons today and come home to tell me that on their way to the store this morning a Phantom flies over 4 lanes of traffic crossing 10-15 ft. in front of her car then flies low under the power lines to the south to an open field. What the hell are people thinking ? When I fly mine I take it to the open desert or over farm land. No where around people. Geez... Anyhow, I got my P3P in October and love it !

    I am constantly amazed by the level of thoughtlessness of the human animal.

    Agreed that this person, the stadium flyovers and Macys parade fliers are prime examples of clamping done on UAS across the board.

    Then again ever seen most jet ski operators?

    These examples make me think; "Hold my beer, watch this."

    20m is the minimum RTH altitude.
