    Filming emergencies is such a great use for a drone! Let us know when you end up like this guy:

    I certainly did. Too bad it didn't work. I'm sure the site administrator has his IP address and he can be tracked.

    Don't be like Donald Trump (although he's very entertaining indeed!). You were asked a tough, but fair question. Since you didn't give a lot of details in your posts, the questions were warranted IMHO.

    Thread cleaned up because someone needs to check the posting guidelines again.

    This is the fine line we talk about . The vid seems he was of no threat to the fire fighters or rescue . Now he might hold a exemption and was working for a news crew we tend to jump the gun without knowing facts . I mean a lot preach about safety (great) but when you get your exemption this would be considered work .
     
  14. That is true.... and with the latest legislation coming out, that line is going to get finer and finer.... Might be just safer to not push that line, at least for my flying.

    This is going to heat up i am sure... not necessarily on this forum, but in general as there is a HUGE base of drone pilots, and more restrictive regulations are going to cause alot of unhappy people!
    After all... isn't this hobby supposed to be fun?

    Sorry but when legislation is enhanced, the line becomes thicker and not finer. A fine line is where it is difficult to determine what can a cant be done. Legislation creates limits. I'm just saying........

    So is the FAA granting exemptions to Phantom owners to film breaking news stories?

    Seriously?

    The exemption is for commercial use so if you get hired by a news media then yes .
    I mean what do you think you are going to do just Real estate ? You know how many news crews will carry a bird in the truck ?

    Drones competing with manned helicopters for breaking news stories?

    Yeah, that is safe and sane...

    Stop acting silly. YOU are not the subject of my post. This is not about you. SMH

    I think it will be dangerous if any Joe Drone Pilot thinks he can show up and compete with manned helicopters to get the scoop on breaking news. If you want to discuss that, fine, but please don't imagine I'm twisting your words when you've got nothin' to twist.
