Not as dangerous as other flights over and around Manhattan, thankfully. I think these were just over the water, close to the launch field.
What.... they uploaded yesterday and already have over 1,000,000 views? That's actually worth some cash!
Very cool. I like the music improvisation ;-)
Did you see, at 1:40? They're flying mode 1. :-)
Very cool and motivating!
Not bad, simple actually. And looks safe since the camera angle is very misleading (they're pretty close actually).
Also, why does every civilian UAV youtube video need to have a snippet OF an Octo+camera hovering....? It's getting old :)
Now 2,000,000 views!
What's that worth on Youtube anyway?
Didn't we just have a thread about why it is illegal to use UAV/RC in the NAS? What I think is interesting is that the quad seems to be tethered (judging by the video unless it is a really long antenna). Which makes you think why would they bother since the rest of the flying was in violation of the FAA rules.
How are they possibly in violation of the rules? They're flying RC airplanes. That's it, that's all.
Flying RC aircraft for hobby, under 400 feet, is allowed. And so is sticking a camera on a multi-copter, for fun but not profit.
The Hudson River is a very busy flyway, and that trumps the recreational 400' rule.
