"Trent, your video work has improved quite a bit and congratulations with your results. I need to point out a few safety issues though. You were flying at 180m (590') and with the heavy fog you had no visual eyes on the aircraft or even worse…"

"Nice work and good flying but you can still have just as much fun without flying near or over people. As we all know those props can do some serious damage very quickly so please - avoid flying over people, it just isn't worth the risk to you…"
