    My wife and I may be taking a trip to Niagara Falls this week. Any tips on where I can fly from around there? We're probably going to stay at a hotel on the Canadian side. Seems like there would be a lot of restrictions flying around there but I've seen a bunch of videos on here that look really great so maybe it's easier than I feared.

    I am close by but never have flown there. I have seen those videos too, some even lifting off right on the grass on the Canadian side.
    Not sure if they got lucky or what as I assume it is not legal, but I could be wrong.

    Edited for obvious reasons. :)

    Actually post #22 of that other thread is the concern. Ugh - I guess there goes that plan.

    Just buy an Osmo and throw it high into the air a few times.

    Get a swimming pool cleaner extendable pole with an Osmo or GoPro on the end. Should give you about 25 or 30 feet easy! :)
