Heres a video bound to make you cry

I know its hardly UAV related, but still .. .

If you don't cry of the sheer beauty and excitment of fpv'ing around new york, you'll at least cry about breaking the laws and bla bla regulations FAA whatever.

They imply they got NYPD, TSA etc approval for this. Sure hope that's true!

Great Vid! So do you get the ok beforehand or do you just kinda do it then act dumb and talk your way out of it after?

@mmmbcn why would I need a permit? it's perfectly legal to fly FPV where I was flying.

apparently its a cop at the end of the video, the guys thats like " oh snap, cooool, oh coooool COOOOL do a flyby !".
It just kind of shows that nobody is bothered as long as you're nice and show good intention

heres the vid info:
"we flew our plane at the beach one night and a police helicopter came over and started chasing us. the cops came and said that we were probably flying in restricted airspace according to the FAA. We got an email from the police sergeant who was in the helicopter and he said he thought we were another helicopter at first because he could see our nav lights that we had on from far away. He also said that we just need to call them next time before we fly so they know that we are there. hope you enjoy the video."

@ johann
I trololol'd at that video. so much money, just goes up in a not very spectacular fireball.

Reckless flying in an urban area like that...can you image the panic it would have caused if it had crashed into the bridge. This type of video is just ammunition for the FAA to use against civilian use.

If he did that on 9/12/01 there would be no FPV today.
