    The editing in this video is off the charts! Being that I do a lot of work similar to this with my Phantom, I thought this was one of the coolest videos I've seen in a long time. What do ya'll think?!

    Now I thought the latest software prevented a Phantom from flying within 5 miles of a Class A or B airport, or at least gave a warning. Most of the Las Vegas strip is certainly within 5 miles of McCarran Field, a Class B airport. Do you think Dronefly didn't know that? Even Wikipedia clearly states that McCarran field is within 8 km (5 miles) of downtown Las Vegas. Or do you think Dronefly ignored its warning?
    And do you think any of those buildings are more than 400' high?

    I think it needs more cuts and effects. It's too calm for my taste. Not enough movement.

    Just confirms my prejudice about Vegas - looks like hell on earth - why anyone would want to go there escapes me

    This video was made with a Phantom 2 and GoPro. You can tell by the video quality. That was why they were able to fly where they did. Plus I'm sure they had flying approval flying at a party like that. Flying at a venue like that would not be allowed otherwise.

    What are you talking about? You can't appreciate a good video when you see one? I was simply stating my thoughts on a video that I thought was well done.

    Haters are gana hate. Just wait until the drone police start freaking out that someone flew a drone within 1000 feet of people. SOMEONE COULD OF BEEN KILLED! [SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH AND COLD SWEAT]

    The software prevents you from autoprogramming a course within 5 miles of an airport. You can manually fly your Phantom wherever you want from a software standpoint.

    Soon after the announcement that the Phantom software was tuned into the locations of major airports, I powered up my P2V in my yard and got a message on my iPhone screen that I was within the 5 mile limit of an airport and should not fly. To be sure, I live beneath the incoming flight path of small aircraft, 2 miles from a Class C airport. I had no intention of flying over 15 feet, because all I wanted to do was discharge the battery. I have not received the message since, nor have I tried to fly again from my house.

    The limit is 0.6 miles from a class B airport, 5 miles from class A.
