    I saw on CNN a DJI Vision flying above the explosion in NYC today. Anyone know who it was? Video?

    Did you notice the media people hurrying over to talk to the P2V operator?
    It was more "news" to them than the explosion was.

    Saw that and it looks like he was rushing to pack up and get out of the spotlight.

    He was telling them what we all tell people

    It's called a Phantom Vision
    About $1200 bucks
    Not for kids
    No you cannot fly it
    Look on youtube
    You can see what the PV2 see on my phone
    records 1080p or take a picture
    25 min flight time.
    &
    Sure I will sell these exclusive pictures to you
    :lol:

    This is just more ammo for the FAA.

    If done respectfully or shows a way to be helpful, then perhaps it's ammo for us.

    I love the irony of the circling news helicopter taking shots of the circling Vision taking shots of the scene, and the commentators spending more time discussing the Vision than what happened...

    so true. . . i was laughing at that as well!!!! NO matter where I go, I'll break out my big expensive $20K camera with cool lenses and stuff, and people barley blink . .but as soon as I break out the "DRONE", people go crazy!!

    Professional reporting, "...some guy..." or "...some random guy...".
