Just want to get opinions on flying at beaches. I was at a beach in RI last weekend and brought my drone to get some shots. My goal was to launch it quickly and head out over the water 100-200 feet off shore and about 200-300 ft altitude and get some video and pics. As I was sitting there thinking about getting it out and prepping it for launch a plane towing a banner comes flying down the cost at about 400-500 feet altitude. Then seconds later a private helicopter comes buzzing up the shore only about 100 ft out and probably 200 FEET ALTITUDE! I quickly decided it was not a good idea to launch. Later that day I was fishing on an inlet to an inner water way miles away from the beach and 1000 ft inland from the ocean. Just as I started to get things ready to launch a WWII fighter plane buzzed us overhead literally 150 FT altitude. Totally illegal! WTF. I'm sure the FAA would hold me responsible if something happened even though the pilot of the plane was completely being reckless. And BTW he was not landing but doing show off flyby maneuvers to impress who ever was with him or watching. Just curious what your experiences and thoughts are for flying around beaches. I see a lot of beach video and pics and wonder if anyone has experienced this or is concerned about it.
