For us RC fliers we know it may be harmless to do most videos that we've been seing here. and in youtube, but we know how lawmaker work. Sometimes they will not look on who's flying safe or who's flying reckless. they will just put us all in 1 basket and be done with it.

I just started enjoying my quad, and i hope to enjoy it longer in the future.

Re: Cool link of a drone flying thru fire works

Although this video provided a neat view of the fireworks, it gives many others ideas on what they could do with their Phantom and gopro,. These things are affordable for the mass public which would be great for our hobby if everyone followed the same set of safety guidelines. Not everyone has the same thought on common sense. Before you know it, these same people are flying around in neighborhoods and towns, taking pictures and video for profit, using nothing other than a Phantom and a gopro. Not saying that's a bad thing, it just has to be done safely, properly, and legally. Transport Canada will let you know if what you want to do is safe when it comes time to make money with your Quad.
In the full scale world, commercial flights are held to a much higher standard than private flights, however private pilots must still maintain themselves and their planes to a standard to ensure public safety. This is something that RC pilots don't have to do, and hopefully won't have to do, if we can keep the crazies from hurting or killing someone with their cool flying camera.

Re: Cool link of a drone flying thru fire works

Guess I'm just another naysayer. Should sum up my feelings. Some people forget that everyone is entitled to express opinions and name calling bullying is not logical just.....

This is how aerial photography is done safely and legally so that if an incident were to happen, people would have protection. both the public and the operator. If this casued an incident. Insurance would be in place to to cover any injury or damage and a lot of work and money was spent to minimise that risk.

Could the same video be done with a dji and go pro by an uninsured guy working out of his trunk??? You bet it could but even though the video would be the same. The legality and ethics of one would be very different then the other.
Just one question , Kevin.... with all the insurance ( MAAC insurance ? or private ?)and preparations, he did ... did he in fact file his flight plan with Nav Canada ?
